We are living in a golden age of Indian fast bowling. Pitches, conditions, match situation – nothing seems to matter. India’s bowling attack is ruthlessly targeting the opposition, and summoning magic deliveries at will.
What better time to talk about our favorite quick bowling performances in Indian conditions – from Malcolm Marshall’s devastating spell in Kanpur to Javagal Srinath’s 13-wicket-haul in a losing cause to Jason Gillespie’s lionhearted effort in Chennai to Dale Steyn’s spell-of-a-lifetime in Nagpur.
And let’s not forget the splendid feats of swing bowling from the likes of Roger Binny, L Balaji and Tim Southee – sussing up Indian conditions and knocking out batsmen on largely benign surfaces.
