India vs South Africa : Former Proteas captain admitted, India has the best pace attack, Team India is a contender for victory….

India vs South Africa , New Delhi: There is a lot of respect among the cricket stalwarts around the world regarding the pace attack of the Indian cricket team. Team India, now on the tour of South Africa, is expected to win another overseas tour only because of their fast bowling attack. The Proteas will have to face the experienced and lethal trio of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma. The first Test match is in Centurion, which is a good place for fast bowling but here Indian pacers do not get much success.

South African fast bowlers have taken 664 wickets at an average of 28.10 in Centurion, while India’s fast bowlers have taken only 15 wickets at 50.40. It has to be seen what the fast bowlers of the Indian team can do now. Meanwhile, former South African captain Ali Bakker has termed the Indian pace attack as the best he has ever seen.

Speaking to News18.com, former South Africa captain Ali Bakker said: “The first two Tests are to be played in Centurion. The fast bouncy pitches in these two Test grounds Wanderers and Super Sport Park usually favor the fast bowlers. The current Indian team has the best pace attack I have seen in the last thirty years. So India will start as strong contenders for the first two Tests.”

The bowlers here recognize the potential of Bumrah (101 wickets), Shami (195), Siraj (33), Sharma (311 wickets) and Yadav (157). He has done exceptionally well in Australia and England. The current Indian pace pack has been molded by Virat Kohli over the last four years, believing that only fast bowlers can help a team compete and win in overseas conditions.

India vs South Africa : During the press conference, vice-captain KL Rahul also emphasized on the merits of fast bowling which has been so successful in Australia and England. Going back to history, the best new ball pair in South Africa has been that of Zaheer Khan and Sreesanth, who took 50 wickets on the Rainbow Nation tour in 2006-07 and 2010-11. India lost the previous tour of South Africa 1–2, and victory at the Wanderers was dictated by brilliant performances from Bumrah (5/54 in the first innings) and Shami (5/28 in the second innings). India’s pace attack took twenty wickets with Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar. India’s fifth seamer was Hardik Pandya. In fact all 40 wickets in Tests were taken by the fast bowlers.
