nasser hussain: India had ‘Fab 5’ with the bat in early 2000s, now they have them with the ball: Nasser Hussain

New Delhi, Former England captain Nasser Hussain feels that the current Indian bowling unit is the best he has ever seen and compares it to the teams “Fab 5” batsmen in the early 2000s. The Indian pace trio of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj, and the spin duo of Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav, presented the opposition batsmen, playing a major role in the team’s nine wins on the trot in the World Cup series stage. .

“This bowling unit is the best bowling unit I have ever seen. There have been great (Indian) bowlers over time but as a unit (this is the best),” Hussain said on Star Sports .

“If Bumrah doesn’t get you, Siraj will. If Siraj doesn’t get you, Shami will. If they don’t get you, both spinners will come in and get you out.”

Hussain drew a parallel to the current five Indian bowlers with the iconic Fab 5 batsmen of Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, who dominated world cricket in the early years of this millennium.

“There used to be a Fab 5 with the bat, this is the Fab 5 with the ball now,” said Hussain.
