With India’s pacers continuing their good work against England, Australia and West Indies even in the not-so-friendly conditions at home, Lara reiterated that the attack reminds him of the Caribbean quartet of the 1970s and 1980s.
“Unbelievable! Jasprit Bumrah — who isn’t playing now — I saw him in the West Indies and I don’t know where it is coming from. I must say, what I was accustomed to in the past — in the 1990s — this is pretty special and exceptional. When you look at the quality — Shami, Bumrah, Yadav are unbelievable,” he said.
“Then there are guys who are in the sidelines. It reminds me little bit of what the West Indies had. The reserve strength is very important to ascertain a team’s ability. Your reserve strength is very good. Bhuvi and all these guys are sitting on the sidelines, that means your attack has quality.”
