I can't even compare present bowling standards to any other era. Its like our pacers have forgotten the basics of pace bowling. Even Mohammed Sharif, Monjurul Islam, Syed Rasel had more brains than this Abul, Shafiul.
Pace bowling is a treat to watch. That's why I make sure I watch SA's opening spell just for Steyn and Morkel. Recently, Siddle/Cummins/Hilfenhaus bowled with same intensity in the tests against India. Even AFG guys like Zadran brothers bowled with lot of hearts.
I am very disappointed with our pace unit. I am no expert to identify what's wrong or even compare Ian and SJ. But its very obvious that we have reached a low in our pace bowling history.
