Akash Chopra, a former Indian cricketer and current commentator, has been selected as the five best bowlers in Test cricket. Notably, he has added two Indian bowlers out of these five. These five bowlers include four fast bowlers and one spinner. Two Indian bowlers selected by Akash include fast bowler Jaspreet Bumrah and off-spinner R Ashwin.
Other bowlers selected by the former cricketer include Australian Australian Pat Cummins and Jos ಹ್ಯಾ Hazlewood, speaking on ESPN Cricinfo’s ‘Run Order’. In addition, Akash has included New Zealand fast bowler Neil Wagner as one of his five favorite Test bowlers. Australian great cricketer Ian Chappell was also present at the event. He has named the five best Test bowlers of the current era.

Chappell has been selected by three Indian players. R Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Pat Cummins and Kagiso Rabada were replaced by the chapel. They topped their country’s Cummins list. Chappell has also been impressed by the performance of Indian pacer Ishant in the last three years and has taken 77 wickets in 22 Tests since 2018.
When Chappell named Ashwin as one of the top five bowlers in Test cricket, Sanjay Manjrekar, who was in attendance, disagreed. “Spinners like Ravindra Jadeja and more recently Axar Patel have also performed very well on India-based basis,” he said. Chappell recalled the contribution of West Indies great fast bowler Joel Garner, who claimed that his wickets were few and far between, with many of the best bowlers in the team.
