There's a group of untested seamers in England that could go on to e god international bowlers. Harris, Meaker, Roland Jones, Topley, Mills, Overton, Jordan & Coles.

Any of those could potentially come through and play for England, although in the long run I feel Topley & Overton have the best chance for a long England career.

Saying that I've always rated Harris and I do believe he'd do a good job for England if he got a chance. Then there's Meaker who's a far better first class bowler than the one we've seen playing for England in one day cricket. Roland-Jones is another I've been mighty impressed with, another who if ever given a chance could do well for us.

Mills is only 20 years old and has got the one thing you can't really coach, pace and he's a lefty too, which makes him quite rare. He's only played 15 first class games yet so it's very early days but he's an exciting prospect. I do think as he matures, he should gain more control over what he sends down.
With Mills the inconsistency seems to be more spell to spell rather than delivery to delivery. This suggests to me that he has got "it".

Hope mills does make it into an England shirt, if he learns to be more accurate his pace will keep most batsman on their toes.

I think he may already be the quickest left-armer ever.

Brett Schultz is the fastest left-armer I can think of (reckon he was quicker than Wasim, who wasn't as quick as Waqar) and Mills is rapid.

I'm far too good to you

Brett Schultz in action, including some strange leaves from tailenders like Hayden and Bevan.

Yes Schultz was quick and a very good bowler, injuries destroyed his career in the end . Funnily enough I was only watching a youtube video of him the other day.

And not Mitch Johnson?

Schultz was quicker than Mitchell Johnson IIRC.

Mills is certainly quicker.
