Although statistically Bumrah will edge others but Zak for me will always be the best.

21 year old debutant in 2000 CT the way he bowled against world beater Aussies.

In 2003 WC he was just 23 year old and was still our go to bowler although Nehra and Srinath also bowled well.

2011 WC he was the lone warrior of our pace attack.

I would put bowlers into two groups where within a group the bowlers are more or less similar. In the order of debut: 

 

Group A: Srinath, Zaheer, Shami, Bumrah, & Siraj* 

 

Group B: Kapil (for the most part of his career, bowled with a red ball and with no power play), Prasad, Agarkar, Nehra, Pathan, Bhuvi, etc.

Group A (leader of the attack) : Kapil, Srinath, Zak, Shami, Bumrah, Siraj

 

Group B (Very good support bowler) : Agarkar, Nehra, Pathan, Umesh

 

Group C (Condition dependent) : Bhuvi, Prasad, Balaji, Prabhakar.

Yeah no he lost us the WC final in that first over! If there's a mockumentary on how not to bowl the opening over of a final that's the over which would feature every *ing time :hitler:
