Well I don't need to describe to you what 'pace' is do I? If we don't have pacers in our line up bowling consistently over 70mph for about 20 overs then how is the ball going to wear and tear so our spinners are effective later on? Also with slow bowling if the ball is not doing anything and its easy for batsman to score runs like New Zealand did at World T20 against us then you need your pacers obviously considering the pitch like in Pallekele was offering seam, swing and bounce. These are just a few points why pace bowling is vital in Cricket despite the surfaces because it can keep batsman of guard compared to spin. A lot of batsman especially tailenders struggle to play pace compared to spin so you obviously need your varieties in Cricket to maximise your chances in taking wickets.
