Sydney: Former Australia fast bowler Brett Lee yesterday termed the current Indian pace attack as the "fastest ever" to have emerged from the cricket-crazy nation, with Mohammad Shami being the "most impressive" among the trio in the World Cup.
The three-pronged pace attack comprising Umesh Yadav and Mohit Sharma, besides Shami, has so far accounted for 42 out of the 70 wickets for India in the ongoing mega event.
Asked if the trio of Shami, Yadav and Sharma are the fastest ever bowling unit to have represented India, Lee said, "I think it will definitely be up there, yes.
When they are on song and bowling fast, then they are definitely up there as I mentioned. They are in the 145 kmph barrier. If they land in the right spot, then they have a really good chance to get wickets and win," he said.
