McGrath was capable of hitting the 140's early on in his career and when I say capable I mean on a consistent basis - I remember watching him bowl a good number of very fast spells back in the mid 90's. I found it quite intriguing that he would cut his pace down by 10-15k's most of the time although he looked completely in control bowling at around the high 130's. It makes sense though when you consider how the reduction in pace helped him further his accuracy and eventually made the difference between a very good bowler and a legendary one.
