^Yah, they do. But the speeds maybe faster in everyone's case because the ball is travelling faster maybe due to the condition and also the time. Last time Shaun Tait crossed 160 barrier was in the night against Pakistan, and generally it swings more at nighttime as well. As all the matches are played in the nights few balls are really fast. Taskin reaching 147 is just out of this world, he is only 20/21, he is reaching that peak all fast bowlers do around the age of 24/25 when they bowl their fastest.

The fastest every ball delivered & recorded by a Bangladeshi was 149.5 by Rubel at the 2009 WC warmup match, if Taskin reaches 150 he will be the first Bangladeshi ever to do so and I think he will reach that target in the next 2 years. He is a true gem for Bangladeshi cricket.
Taskin Ahmed Tazim : 143 KPH - 18 years - Against Aussies - 1st April, 2014
148 KPH - 20 years - Against Pak At Dhaka - 2nd March 2016
