Australian bowling attack among the best I’ve ever played, says Virender Sehwag
Impressed by Australia’s phenomenal performance in the opening three Tests, Indian opener, Virender Sehwag has rated current Aussie bowling attack as one of the best he has ever faced.
Thanks to a brilliant bowling show, the Kangaroos have secured an unassailable 3-0 lead in the ongoing Test series against India.
The fourth and final Test of the clash is scheduled to be played at Adelaide this week.
The fast bowling department has been Australia’s main strength in the last three wins, and the hosts are aiming a 4-0 whitewash.
On the other hand, India’s batting line-up is certainly one of the best in the business; however, Sehwag admitted that his team was outperformed by Australia’s pace attack including Ben Hilfenhaus, Peter Siddle, Ryan Harris, James Pattinson and Mitchell
Giving full credit to Aussie pacemen, he said, "They are bowling in good areas, they are not giving up easy balls to hit boundaries. They are playing with your patience and all," Sehwag told reporters on the eve of the final test. I think that’s the best
bowling attack I’ve ever seen, especially against Australia.”
"Generally, when I played the fast men … I’d get a couple of balls I could hit for boundaries. But in this attack I hardly get any balls. So, I think, one of the best bowling attacks," added the 33-year-old opening batsman who will stand in as skipper
for the final game.
The veteran batsman also rued over India’s recent terrible performance in foreign conditions. He expressed disappointment over his team’s pathetic display in the previous two consecutive overseas series, despite holding excellent prior records.
He conceded that the things are not going in the right direction for India at the moment, but was determined to salvage some respect by doing well in the last game.
“I feel bad because in the last 10 years we have done well overseas but in the last two series we have not live up to expectations. But we are working hard, we are trying hard. Sometimes you do what you can and it doesn’t click. That’s part of life, part
of the game," shared the Delhi batsman.
