India’s five-pronged pace attack in Tests consists of Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
However, very rarely do we see all the five bowlers in action due to injuries or playing conditions. The country, traditionally reputed to provide meek pacers, is now being hailed as one of the best pace attacks, if not the best, in the world.
Add Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini, Shardul Thakur, Syed Khaleel Ahmed, Mohammed Siraj into the list, who keep knocking at the doors of selectors, completing an abundant reservoir of promising fast bowlers in the country.
Vidarbha pacer, Yadav, seldom gets the opportunity to feature in Test matches with the trio of Bumrah, Ishant and Shami preferred over the rest.
