Top Ten Fast Test Bowlers of Indian Cricket Team  

India has been struggling to produce quality fast bowlers. They have produced some good bowlers here and there but have always lacked the real pace up front. They have had bowlers like Kapil Dev, Javagal Srinath and Venkatesh Prasad who performed well when they were in form. However, on dead pitches and difficult conditions, they have failed to perform as others would. They normally have a better medium pace and spin attack.

The top Indian fast bowlers in the Test cricket would definitely include few from the current generation. Players like Zaheer Khan and Irfan Pathan have performed really well over the years. Irfan has been phenomenal on swinging pitches. His incoming delivery has created problems for various top order batsmen around the world. Here are the top ten Test fast-bowlers from India.

  • Kapil Dev
  • Javagal Srinath
  • Zaheer Khan
  • Ajit Agarkar
  • Venkatesh Prasad
  • Irfan Pathan
  • Manoj Prabhakar
  • Ashish Nehra
  • Madan Lal
  • Karsan Ghavri

Top Five Fast ODI Bowlers of Indian Cricket Team

India has been a strong team in the ODIs. They have always posed a threat to the other teams with their batting depth and spin bowling. However, they have never been on top of their pace attack. The Indian pacers have generally lacked pace and flare, which are both assets of a pace bowler. They have relied more on swing and medium pace bowling.

A top ten list for fast bowlers playing ODI for India would contain rare pacers like Javagal Srinath and Zaheer Khan. The rest of the bowlers are really medium pacers. Irfan Pathan and Prasad used to generate good pace; however, they lacked pace and performance on slower tracks.

Here is a list of the top Indian fast bowlers playing the ODI cricket for India.

  • Javagal Srinath
  • Irfan Pathan
  • Venkatesh Prasad
  • Zaheer Khan
  • Kapil De 

Top Three Fast T20 Bowlers of Indian Cricket Team  

20-20 cricket is not all about batting. This format of cricket does not give great credit to the fast bowlers; however, the team with better pace attack would dominate others even in this new format of cricket. India has lacked the pace attack in the past, but they are developing some good fast bowlers, especially for the 20-20 format of cricket. The recent performances by these bowlers have impressed everyone. The World Cup winning side definitely had to thank their pace attack for superior bowling upfront.

Ishant Sharma and Srisanth have become real threat to the opposition top orders. They have performed really well in this new format of cricket. They are, without any doubt, top fast bowlers for India in this short form of cricket. The others bowler to make to the list is Praveen Kumar. He is mean and bowls tight. He has really not given anything to the top hitters in 20-20. His strike rate is also appreciable. Here is the list of top fast bowlers of India in T20 cricket:

  • Srisanth
  • Ishant Sharma
  • Praveen Kumar
