but this Test here are the speeds I saw:

Rubel - max (144), average (138-140)
Shahadat - max (137), average (128-130)
Shafiul - max (135), average (130)

the following are not from this Test, but general observations:

Ishant - max (142), average (132-135)
Zaheer - max (140), average (128-130)
Sreesanth - max (145), average (130-132)
Walegedara - max (?), average (135)
Kulasekara - max (135), average (125)
Malinga - max (142), average (135)
Fernando - max (148), average (140)
Asif - max (137), average (130)
Gul - max (145), average (135)
Aamer - max (146), average (135-138)
aamer definitely hit 150kph+ a number of times in australia this summer although i don't think he hits those speeds every match. everyone knows ishant has hit over 150kph in australia but again he doesn't do it every match and has definitely lost some pace, malinga apparently use to bowl around 150kph at a time as well.

shafiul was bowling around 135kph average in the tri-series, hopefully he can do the same in test cricket. outside of the national squad sajidul and emon have good pace, i think subashis ihas a bit of pace as well.
