Australia is well known for producing fast bowlers, who later went on to become all-time best bowlers in cricket. Dennis Lillee and Jeff Thomson are examples of this.
In the recently concluded series between Pakistan and Australia, the trio of Josh Hazelwood, Pat Cummins, and Mitchell Starc destroyed the Men in Green’s batting line-up with their deadly pace and accuracy. Now, the former Aussie pacer Brett Lee has come out has predicted about their future.
Previously, the trio of Glenn McGrath, Brett Lee and Jason Gillespie dominated world cricket and now the new fast bowling unit is in the making that might fill the boots left by their former cricketing greats. The intimidating trio of Starc, Hazelwood, and Cummins are doing so now.
Brett Lee’s opinion on the trio of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazelwood
The former Australian pacer, Brett Lee, feels that the trio of Hazelwood, Starc, and Cummins holds the potential to be better than any era and make their name in the history books as one of the most creative trios. He also added that, usually, the bowlers hunt in packs. Nonetheless, only two bowlers who come to mind are Dennis Lillee and Jeff Thomson, Usauall who set a plan to out the batsmen.
He explained that there were four world-class West Indian bowlers as well. However, Australia has three bowlers, who are doing continuously well. And according to him, they will leave a mark in the history of cricket as one of the best.
“These three will possibly go down as a trio that can be better than any era. When you talk about fast bowlers they hunt in a pack, but it is generally only two bowlers that you mention. Lillee (Dennis Lillee) and Thommo (Jeff Thomson). You think about the great West Indian bowlers, there were about four of them but normally there are two who work together. On this occasion, we have got three amazing bowlers that are all doing a great job. In the history books they will go down,” Brett Lee said.
