Well there aro two kind of pacers in the world, one who bowls faster than 145, and ones that dont. Its as simple as that. well perhaps even 140. Giving you xtra 5k pace wont win you matches, the pace you need to beat a batsman is somewhere around 140 and Rubel is already well over that mark. I am quite excited to see how he turns out in 5 years time. He should not be someone like 'earlier' shoaib akhtar, who bowled 160k but had no control. Shoaib in his later career became a much better bowler even with 140ks. So Pace is an important thing, but to succeed in Intl cricket, line/length/swing is way more important than pace.
