View Full Version : Standing of Bangladesh Pace Attack Compare with Others

Let's rate the following Test Bowling Attacks on a Scale of 10.

Mortaza-Shahadat-Shafiul-Rubel (Any 3) (Bangladesh)

Asif-Aamer-Gul (Pakistan)

Anderson-Sidebottom-Broad (England)

Hilfy-Bollinger-Johnson (Australia)

Malinga-Fernando-Tushara (Srilanka)

Zaheer-Ishant-Nehra (India)

Steyn-M.Morkel-Parnell (South Africa)

Roach-Edwards-Taylor (West Indies)

Martin-Southee-Tuffey (Newzealand)

Where is our standing? Why? You can add any Pacer with above list.

According to my judgement the rating is as follows

Steyn-M.Morkel-Parnell (8/10)

Asif-Aamer-Gul (7/10)

Anderson-SiBo-Broad (6/10)
Hilfy-Bollinger-Johnson (6/10)

Malinga-Fernando-Tushara (5/10)

Zaheer-Ishant-Nehra (3/10)
Roach-Edwards-Taylor (3/10)
Martin-Southee-Tuffey (3/10)

Mortaza-Shahadat-Shafiul-Rubel (Any 3) (2/10)

Fielding Quality of the team is important for Fast Bowlers. They must need some good Slip Fielders. If we consider fielding quality of the team the effectiveness of these attackes may vary like:

Steyn-M.Morkel-Parnell (8/10)

Hilfy-Bollinger-Johnson (7/10)

Anderson-SiBo-Broad (6/10)
Asif-Aamer-Gul (6/10) [Pakistani pacers usually get wicket by staright delivery. It is the tradition of Pakistan from the era of Imran & Co. Their fielding affect their bowlers performance in minimul level otherwise they will be lower than Srilanka]

Malinga-Fernando-Tushara (5/10)

Roach-Edwards-Taylor (3/10)
Martin-Southee-Tuffey (3/10)
Zaheer-Ishant-Nehra (3/10)

Mortaza-Shahadat-Shafiul-Rubel (Any 3) (2/10)


This rating can be changed because experience improve bowler a lot. The level of experience gain by Aamer, he will be matured & more effective. The combination of Aamer & Asif with Gul will be number 1.



In case of Bangladesh, we do not have Experience, Thinking Capability, Guidence. Sometimes they perform but that is not that effective. Never help to win a test match. There is no chance to compare their technical skill with others. That is not even comparable. On the other hand with a weak batting line up, almost only with Bowling Pakistan got a test win against Australia.

If you rate Malinga/Fernando/Thushara 5/10 then I guess 2/10 is a fair rating for BD. But pure bowling wise these are my ratings:
Asif-Gul-Aamer and Steyn-Morkel-Parnell 9/10
Broad/Finn/Anderson 8/10
Hilfy/Douggy/Mitch 7-7.5/10
Malinga/Thushara/Fernando 7/10
Roach/Edwards/Tailor 7/10
Southee/Martin/Tuffee 6.5-7.5/10
Zaheer/Ishant/Nehra - 6/10
Mashrafe/Shafi/Rubel 5.5/10

Our pace attack is quite easily the worst amongst the test nations.

SA 9
Pak 8.5
Aus 8
Eng-NZ 7.5
SL-Ind (Including experienced Zaheer) 6.5
WI 6
BD 5.5
That is the order IMO. Adding spin since you have to have both in today's conditions:

Pak-SA 8.5
NZ 8
Aus-Eng-SL-Ind 7
BD-WI 6

No way WI pacers tie with BD. In Kemar Roach they have genuine, express pace. That alone puts them ahead of us.

Zeeshan

If I may weigh in...

I think pace attack -bearing in mind the wasim, waqar, aaqib era- has a lot to do with willpower. Those guys could land the ball in the slot at will and would keep on attacking the stumps over and over till the defense broke. Bowlers nowadays relying on seam movement, variations, pitch conditions, swings, slip cordon aren't much interested in that ancient art of perfection and hitting the bull's eye. Frankly art of bowling shouldn't have to be a rocket science. There are stumps to hit, target them and get the victim out. But while trying to do too many things like experimenting with pitching short or full and adding more variables can easily confuse the bowlers newly initiated at the game.

Idk..that's just what I think.

I think it will depend on under what condition they are playing. However, my overall ranking would be:
1. Asif-Gul-Aamer 9/10
2. Broad/Finn/Anderson 8.5/10
3. Steyn-Morkel-Parnell 8/10
4. Malinga/Thushara/Fernando 7.5/10

7. Southee/Martin/Tuffee 6/10
8. Zaheer/Ishant/Nehra - 5.5/10

u may consider Mathews for Sl and Oram for NZ. Also WI may find a spot for Sammy as the 4th bowler/pacer. and if england is playing BD then Bopara/Trotts trundlers are a big bonus

Why only Kemar Roach? Fidel Edwards is really fast as well, he too is a genuine fast bowler.

Anyways, here are my ratings ---

SA -- 9/10
Pak --- 8.5 / 10
Eng -- 8/10
Aus -- 7.5/10 (will improve when Lee and Nannes makes their comeback)
WI --- 7/10
SL --- 6/10
NZ --- 6/10
IND --- 5/10
BAN -- 3/10

IMO, even Afghanistan has a better pace attack than ours, and I just love the whole aggressive mentality and enthusiasm that Afghanistan has and which, we sadly lack. So we arent even the best among the worst

they are certainly more consistent as opposed to our pacemen, but I still think Mortaza, Shafiul, Rubel (maybe I'll skip Shahadat) gang is better...

Anyway,
I won't go too much en détails:
Steyn/Morkel/Ntini or Parnelle (8.5/10)
Amir/Gul/Asif(8/10)


BD at the end:( (3.5/10)
But I'm too confused with BD trio for Tests,Shahadat is a must,Mash only if fit,& maybe Shafiul.
At the same time I think with proper training ,under good bowling coach,our pacers have the potentiel to overtake India & WI attack.

July 28, 2010, 01:47 PM

if this is outside sub-continent then the attack is zaheer and any two of ishant/sreesanth/munaf.

Indian pace attack is way over rated. Only reason they win so many games is because Sehwag scores a double or triple century in every other match and they put so many runs on the board, oppositions realize they have to bat for days on end just to get a draw and therefore give away their wickets out of frustration and depression.

Australia (not the test side, that was up against the Paks. But the ODI, and T20 guys) 7

Fast bowlers are dying. And you can blame the FTP for that. Way too much cricket. Way too much 600/2 pitches around the world (specially Caribbean and Subcon.). Day in, day out, fast bowlers are quitting cricket, because they can't handle the longer version anymore.

I would LOVE to at least 2 bowlers from every side who can bowl around 95 consistently. Americans would love to see that. Hell if a broken old hag Akhtar can do it, why can't the regular guys?

Yeah, I now realise that I have given the Bangladesh line up too much mark, emotions kicking in :P You should definitely take 1 away from Bangladesh's ranking.
But I think the Indian attack isn't as bad as many of us are assuming, Zaheer Khan is an absolute world class bowler, and if Ishant is near his best, India has a very decent pace duo.

July 28, 2010, 10:37 PM
i prefer MORTAZA SHAFIUL AND RUBEL a good combination for ODI,
SHAHADAT is effective in TEST CRICKET but SHAFIUl and RUBEL need to be CONSISTENT IN LINE AND LENGTH AND VARIATION their speed is fine for international cricket.
its also better if we can find another paceman all rounder then it will be more effective.
we can also try to train SHAFIUL who can do batting a bit , if MORTAZA get serious about batting he will be effective as a pinch hitter.

Some of you guys are unbelievable, comparing Zimbabwe pace(?)rs with BD... Heck I'd say the bowling is ever better than Indian attack if you take Zak out of them.. That's why I said with proper coaching they can become fairly good bowlers if not very good..

Eng -- 7/10
Aus -- 7.5/10

thats true.

in zaheer, ishant, nehra, rp singh, sreesanth, munaf patel, irfan pathan they have lots of promise and talent.

the problem is they very seldom can keep a duo or trio fully fit or in form.

<o:smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" images="" smilies="" shocked.gif="" border="0" alt="" title="shocked" smilieid="2" class="inlineimg"></o:smarttagtype> Come’n, you know I know you know what I mean. ;) The point I was trying to make is you cherry picked four matches and yet a spinner was the highest wicket taker in three instances (Bhaaji’s 8 vs. SA, Mishra’s 7 vs. Aus and then again Bhaaji’s 7 vs Aus) and co highest wicket taker in the other (Bhaaji’s 6 vs SL).

If I were to do the same I’m sure I could also find some mighty good looking stats even in Shahadat’s bowling record not that I think he’s in the same league as the Indians. When the likes of irfan pathan or munaf patel or Ishant Sharma first burst onto the scene one could be forgiven for thinking the next Kapil Dev had arrived. There were lots of promises and very little results to show for since the first few series’. They just seem to have a tendency to peak way too early too often only to slowly fizzle out as compared to their Pak/Aus/SA/Eng/NZ counterparts. Zahir is a notable exception and with all the mileage he’s clocked at the age of almost 32, he’s probably got little left in his tank. Once he’s gone I see no reason why even <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Bangladesh</st1:place></st1:country-region> should be afraid of their pace attack, and if we can somehow figure out their spinners that’s when I expect to get our first draw against them.

Neel Here
July 29, 2010, 11:48 AM
you are missing my point. individually, except zaheer all the Indian pacers are far far behind an aamer or a johnson, let alone a stein. yet they have turned in good performances as a team time and again. this is something hard to gauge for someone not following them closely, somehow, as if by luck, more often than not 2 pacers (out of 3) have put in good performances that cover the mediocre performance of the third. except zaheer, the combination kept changing but the overall attack was quite potent, more than it looks on paper.
crudely speaking, it goes something like this
Z-zaheer
A,B,C - other pacers
+ good performance
- poor performance
match 1
Z+ A+ B-
match 2
Z+ A- C+
match 3
Z- B+ C-
match 4
Z+ B- C+

even though individually they are very ordinary, as a total attack they have given India a number of away wins. it's like the south african batting of the 90's, no one scored a 100 but they posted 280+ in every other match.

I haven't cherry-picked those examples, it's just the last tests India won in India. of course spinners got more wkts but what do you expect ? it's a subcontinent track where every foreign pacer has struggled except stein in one test match. in the very next test he went for 115/1.
