Melbourne: Former Australia fast bowler Geoff Lawson feels that the trio of Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav can potentially end up as India's best pace attack ever. "I saw Umesh bowl during the IPL for Delhi Daredevils against us (when Lawson was coach of the now defunct Kochi Tuskers Kerala).
"I always wanted to see him bowl with a Kookaburra ball here in Australia -- on bouncy pitches. It's nice to see that he's figured out the exact length to bowl here. He's got raw pace and doesn't get carried away. For a guy on his first tour to Australia, he has shown a lot of maturity. Good on him."
"And Ishant too has really come of age. Today, he clocked 150 kmph and with the perfect length. I definitely feel that this trio of Ishant, Zaheer and Umesh can potentially be one of India's best pace attacks of all time. Only thing is that Zaheer could be on his last legs. But I like the look of Varun Aaron too. Once Zaheer is gone, Aaron could prove a handy replacement," Lawson told MiD DAY.
