Default Bd fast bowlers in history with the best bowling actions

Often it is the bowling action which bares a strong influence on your ratings of a fast bowler. Who doesn't enjoy a attractive ( to the eye of the beholder) bowling action? Turning it around, who doesn't hate a clumsy( again to the eye of the beholder) bowling action?

Who are some of the Bd fast bowlers over the years who you thought had a nice bowling action?


My picks:

Manjural Islam.
Beautiful run up in my opinion, and one of the few genuine swingers of the ball we've had. Was unlucky to not have benefited from the better coaches we had in recent years, as he was part of an era were excessive wides and no balls were common by Bd bowlers. Had he improved his line with the help of our newer coaches, his smooth run up would have reflected on his productivity.

Tapash Baisiya. I always loved how Tapash bowled. It seemed that his deliveries always packed a punch no matter what. The way he would use his left hand as a gauge, bending it at the elbows, before swiftly bringing down the right hand releasing the ball. Awesome bowling action in my opinion.


Peace out and keep it 100,

Roey

I like Raju's action. Haven't seen/can't remember the old guys actions, but from recent times his look good on the eye.

Shafiul has a good action but with his skinny arms its hard to take notice of it. Abul has a really smooth action.

My dream phaast bowler for BD would be:

1. Run up and follow through like Lee
2. Aggressive like Waqar
3. Line and length like McGrath
4. Hair style like old Gillespie
5. Bowling arm tattooed like Mitchell Johnson

Coming back to topic, Manjural had a good action. I even like the looks of Abul.

Best action: 1. Abul Hasan 2. Rubel (for creating pace his action is the best and should be modelled) 3. Will give it to the new find Taskin

Worst action: Alauddin babu, Alamin... any open chested action is a big no from me

Want to see: Subhashish Roy, Abu Haider (only one clip is not enough) and probably Delwar hossain

Rubel Hossain. That's what I call a gangsta action.

McGrath's action was sweet as cherry pie. The pigeon always delivered. How cool would it be if one of the Bd bowlers had a similar action?

I used to like Mash's action before he got riddled with all those injuries. Ever since then, he doesn't arch his back enough for the action to be as good as it was.

Yeah, that's why they need need to improve their action to be successful on the big stage. Some of the best pace bowlers also had some of the sickest actions.
