Leeds (UK), July 25 (ANI): Pakistan cricket captain Salman Butt has claimed that he has a pace attack that could give England a run for their money in a forthcoming three Test series.

Pace trio Mohammad Asif (11 wickets), Mohammad Aamer (11) and Umar Gul (8) claimed a collective 30 wickets in the two-test series against Australia.”I feel very fortunate to have them in my team. If they are not the world’s best, then they are amongst the world’s top two or three. Mohammad Aamer is definitely amongst the world’s best fast bowlers. And Mohammad Asif with the new ball is the best fast bowler I’ve seen for a long time, probably since Glenn McGrath,” the News of The World quoted Butt, as saying.Australia captain Ricky Ponting said: “Their group of bowlers are perfectly suited to English conditions. Asif moved the ball around and was the hardest one to score off in both games and boundaries were hard to find.” (ANI)
