Cricket was first played by the Englanders but the practice of swing bowling started from a country where cricket is not very famous – America! Not every bowler can master the art of changing the direction of the ball in the mid-air. Precision, patience, time, and practice – the best of the bests have been created by the same.
There are many to add to the list of swing bowlers and the list may vary from person to person. However, for daily fantasy cricket fans, these are some of the bowlers who if played now could have bagged an ample number of points.
Zaheer Khan (India)
Zaheer Khan fronted the Indian bowling for more than an era. Those who’ve seen his swing ball are well aware of his brilliant ability to swing the ball both ways (left and right). With 311 wickets in his bag, before he retired from all forms of matches, Zaheer was one stunning fast bowler who could even pull off the reverse swing with an old ball! Commendable and desirable player for cricket fantasy games!
Chaminda Vaas (Sri Lanka)
He might be the second-highest wicket-taker of Sri Lanka, but his undefined ability to swing the ball with ease made some of the great batsmen of his times go down on knees. Although he wasn’t a fast-paced bowler his trademark delivery was late indipper. And from the day he started making reverse swing his constant companion on the fields, no one was able to stop him from taking wickets. For sure the best online cricket games miss his presence in the field now!
Dale Steyn (South Africa)
Like the others on the list, Steyn was a good swinger too! Then, what made him come up to this list? His ability to swung at 145 mph. If the batsman survived his initial throw, then he made sure that his reverse swing gets him back to the dressing room! 439 wickets from just 93 games – the number says it all! This is a type of player who cans smash records in daily fantasy cricket games.
James Anderson (England)
Sometimes you just need stop and marvel at the beautiful way in which this player swings the bowl on both sides. Even the best of the lot has succumbed to his bowling abilities. With insuperable power, skills, and fitness, Anderson continues to get wickets with his excellent swing deliveries. All daily fantasy cricket fans will admit that he is getting better with age. Looking forward to seeing a new record? Doesn’t seem impossible for this man!
Wasim Akram (Pakistan)
Although put in the end, talk’s about swing bowling is incomplete without mentioning the “king of swing bowling”. 414 wickets in 104 Test matches justifies the reason behind the title. Smooth, error -the free, continuous attack has made some of the biggest batsmen lose out to this man! Beautifully this man swings the ball with quick arm actions leaving the batsman no scope of hitting the bowl and getting runs. A true treasure to the Pakistan team, the presence of Akram in some of the best online cricket games could have changed the pace of the fantasy gaming!
