Loughborough (UK), July 28 (ANI): England middle-order batsman Paul Collingwood has described the Pakistan bowling attack as overrated and added that reports describing its potency are “way over the top”.

He said Australia’s bowlers were still the world’s best.

“I think they (Pakistan’s bowlers) have got a lot of talent, but to say they are the number one pace attack in the world is probably over the mark,” he told reporters at England’s training base at Loughborough University on Tuesday.

“They have played in conditions recently where it (the ball) has done a fair bit. Australia for me are still a very, very strong bowling attack,” he added.

“They have got a lot of pace there and I guess if they had have got those same conditions on the first day they would have caused a lot of problems,” Collingwood said.

“They have got skill and we need to be careful, but I think, we can handle whatever they throw at us,” he said.

Collingwood was speaking ahead of the first Test between England and Pakistan. (ANI)
