India the current world champion of cricket.Recently it has observed that this team is weak in their bowling session.I think this team need perfect and skillful bowler in their squad.

Perhaps you mean the current world cup holders and at the moment the number 1 ODI team !!! :)
Their bowling has always been a weak link ever since I can remember. Seen them producing world class batsmen .. but rarely seen India producing a world class fast bowler (last I can think of is Kapil Dev). They had been producing top class spinners but even than in my opinion has not been the case in the last decade or so ( after Anil Kumble ) .

First of all India needs a new quality spinner. May be they should try Ojha in one day's
Pace has never been the forte and all those who claimed to be the fastest like Varun Aaron or Umesh Yadav have been sitting injured for long time
Bhuvneshwar kumar is a good swing bowler and hopefully he improves over time
A sad but genuine article on why india doesn't produce ace pacers is

In honesty I don't know much about Indian cricket, but for me this article highlights one of the big problems with Indian cricket. From what I can tell, it appears that they almost refuse to improve their skills to deal with conditions other than those found in India. If they worked on their ability in 'away' conditions they could be a strong performer in all formats, not just short forms.

Not sure I agree with that - Javagal Srinath was pretty decent and Zaheer Khan too when he could be bothered...

It's not a problem with the talent being produced, it's the lack of opportunities they receive. Inter-state cricket is either on flat tracks or square turners, so there is no reward for fast bowlers.

That's probably one of the main reasons India is struggling for good fast bowlers as well as batsmen who can play fast bowling well.

Both of them decent ... but world class ?? I wouldn't compare either with the likes of Wasim, Waqar. Would you ?
