Yes that was against Zimbabwe in his debut series. The speed was shown in the electronic scoreboard not the television data bar.

If Rubel wants i bet he can reach 145, he's just not overdoing it after return from injury. Shafiul, Abul are also capable of crossing 140. From what is seems Taskin is also 140 plus. But the key is to find bowlers who can do it effortlessly without over straining of over exerting themselves. And then you have back that pace with proper aggression. Its all about psychology. Steyn is successful because he does this beautifully. Puts fear in the mind of the batsmen.
