7. Trent Boult

New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult’s fitness has been quite extraordinary. The key to Boult’s consistency has been his fitness and simple action. This is what sets him a class apart from most other pacers of this generation.

Being accurate with the ball is really significant in all parts of the world. Being a left-handed pacer, the 31-year-old Boult has a cutting edge in terms of bowling variation that he can offer to the team.

Boult has proved time and time again that he is one of the best pacers in the world. He has taken 285 wickets in 135 Test innings, 169 wickets in 93 ODIs, 46 wickets in 34 T20s and 63 wickets in 48 IPL games.

6. Pat Cummins

It is not that easy to be a fast bowler as it takes a lot of hard work, effort because the bowler has to run a long way to deliver the ball to the batsman. The more the pacer makes runs, there are chances that he may suffer fatigue.

This is why the national cricket boards have introduced a rotational policy where they can give the key players a breather. This gives the pacers enough time to rest and make a grand comeback. Australian international Pat Cummins is one of the very few pacers who has been taking good care of his body.

Cummins is one of the fittest fast bowlers in the world. The fast bowler and a capable lower-order right-handed batsman who plays for Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL has taken 29 wickets in 30 games in the cash-rich league.
