I may have missed it when Mashrafe bowled at 143 kmph. This speed certainly makes him a sharp bowler provided he can remain fit and bowl accurately. However the tag of genuine fast bowler should only be given to those who bowl at 150 kmph and above, namely the likes of Shoaib, Brett Lee and Sami.

If bowlers bowling at 143 kmph are also considered genuinely fast then there are nearly 20 bowlers world wide who will have to be considered genuinely quick and I do not think there are so many genuinelly quick bowlers around.
