Brett Lee. The pinnacle of fast bowling.

I tried to mainly mention players not already named, tait was already named and is of more recent times. I think Roberts and Thomson I did include but I named them because they were from times past and less people may know about them.

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.

^This is true. Abdul razzaq was also pretty quick, not sure if he ever hit 150 but in his early days he must’ve been close.

Anyone remembers Mathew Hoggard? He was a good fast bowler. But I believe he was not super fast (150k range).

I remember Shoaib Akhter bowling 150+ KPH deliveries and Bashar pulling them to boundaries. He probably hit 11 four in his innings. 😊

Shoaib Akhtar was more concerned about show/theatrics than taking wickets. If you do not consider the drama/showdown, he is overrated.

I remember a tour match where Shohaib Akhatar was using some mighty pace deliveries to Ashraful at Worcestershire's stadium. Ashraful kept dispatching them to the boundary.

At one point Shohaib jokingly was shaking Ashraful's helmet. It was Moodys last game as coach that day too.

I remember the stupid presenter called our team Pakistan () and SHohaib its BANGLADESH MAN!

Harmison, Flintoff - they were fast too. 140k was their norm.

It is not conclusive, but Shoaib's action certainly gives the vibe that he is throwing the ball (instead of bowling).

And yet he has over 300 wickets. So he wasn't too shabby. But I preferred Brett Lee coz he rarely list his line or length and bowled with an amazing seam position

I feel like we don't get nasty/mean fast bowlers these days. Way to much respect shown to batsman.

Maybe Jofra Archer might be the one, batsman get worried about.

It definitely wasn't easy facing Shoaib Akhtar.. very aggressive, mean.. nasty short balls..

His bowling action was very easy on the eye, generated good pace.

Amongst the fast bowlers, I have seen.. this guy is probably the worst.

Bad line/length, lack of control. Was quite inconsistent imo.

But he did pick up wickets.

As for Bangladeshis, Tapash and Mashrafe (before the injuries) could get up to the high 140s
Loved the aggression of Johnson, didn't watch Bond too much..
