I remember him hitting Sarwan on the helmet in 2003.

Sarwan was out of the game for a while after that.

80km is enough to knock somebody out of the game....

But I was surprised watching him in BPL, even at 34+ age, he was clocking near 145kph.

Starc regularly bowls 150+, as does archer

Also some gang mentions imran Khan he was never express, most of his career he bowled around 130, then when he started bowling at high 130s to low 140s

Garner was also called a spinner by other fast bowlers in West indies because he was slower than rest and never really got much past 140, it was his bounce and accuracy people were petrified of

Lockie Ferguson can get it close to 150 kph. Jofra Archer has done it already

tait was clocked at 160 plus on one or two occasions, you can check it out on YouTube. Tait bowled a fair number of balls at 155 plus, he was faster than Brett lee as far as consistency at top speed, lee was able to bowl as fast and might’ve had a higher average speed but I think tait bowled more balls over 150 than Brett did.
Oh yes, that is what I was referring to. That over is my favorite fast bowling display. For him to turn in an effort like that, is just incredible. And that is what all this comes down to it seems like, effort. Most pacers can crank it up, but they don't want to keep doing it because it takes a toll on the body.

Whatever happened to Shaun Tait btw? I think he could have become an ODI all time great had he not taken that break to reflect on life. But that's what bowling seriously fast can do to you I guess. You need to enjoy, or else you are a goner.

My memory is a bit foggy on Shaun taits exit unfortunately, I’m pretty sure he had an injury or two which required surgery (elbow for some reason comes to mind). I think the injuries might’ve played a part, he was never the most consistent bowler either so perhaps some other quality pacers came along and pushed him out.
