It would not be wrong to say that Australia ruled the cricketing world in the late and early 2000. One of the major reasons for this glorious run was to possess a sturdy bowling unit. The likes of Glenn McGrath, Jason Gillespie, Brett Lee and Shane Warne ripped apart from batting line-ups while flexing their muscles.
Recently, paceman Josh Hazlewood reflected on the past bowling unit of the Aussies by saying that they were probably one of the best attacks ever to grace the International arena with their presence. Not only that, but the veteran of 51 Tests, 48 ODIs and 7 T20Is is also of the opinion that this particular bowling line-up serves as a benchmark for the current unit.
He aims to reproduce the magical shows of the aforementioned pacers and believes that if they repeat only half of what McGrath and company did, Australia would go on to pocket a plethora of victories. While Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins have done really well so far, it remains to be seen how they fare in the long run.
