Renowned Indian cricket icon Sunil Gavaskar has made a striking proclamation regarding the current supremacy of Pakistan’s formidable new ball attack on the global cricketing stage.

Gavaskar’s assertion finds its foundation in the outstanding exploits of Pakistan’s pace triumvirate, comprised of Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Naseem Shah. Their scorching performances have ignited the cricketing arena at the Asia Cup 2023. In the context of wickets garnered during the tournament, Rauf stands tall at the forefront, amassing an impressive tally of 9 dismissals. Close on his heels are Naseem Shah and Shaheen Afridi, each wielding 7 wickets to their name.

In a candid tête-à-tête with India Today, Gavaskar acknowledged the historical rivalry between Australia and Pakistan, often locked in a battle for supremacy in the realm of new ball prowess. However, Gavaskar firmly positions the contemporary Pakistani contingent as the torchbearers of the most formidable new ball assault in the cricketing world.

He articulated, “Once upon a time, Australia and Pakistan might have shared the top two spots in the race for the most potent new ball attack, given Pakistan’s perennial presence in this domain. Yet, at this juncture, they have ascended to the throne, boasting the most lethal new ball arsenal in the game.”

Gavaskar went on to elucidate the elements that render Pakistan’s new ball attack unrivaled. “They wield a captivating left-arm, right-arm combination. With the ability to swing the ball both ways at a commendable pace, they render any batter’s aggressive stance from the outset an arduous task,” he expounded.

This perspective from the iconic Indian cricketer underscores the transformation of Pakistan’s new ball brigade into an awe-inspiring force, signaling a paradigm shift in the hierarchy of cricketing prowess. As the Asia Cup 2023 unfolds, the world watches with bated breath to witness whether this newfound supremacy will endure.
