    Shaun Tait- 149-151km/h

    Brett Lee- 146-148km/h

    Mitchell Johnson- 145-146km/h

    Fidel Edwards-145-146/km/h

    Dale Steyn- 145-146km/h

    As you can see from the average speeds, unfortunately the bowling speeds have dropped over the last 5 years. This could be due to too much Cricket being played, or just a lack of talent in the world cricket at this paticular time.

    2nd Q) It's not down to size, Joel Garner, Andrew Flintoff, Steve Harmison, Curtley Ambrose and even now Ishant Sharma are all tall bowlers who were the fastest bowlers in the team.

    Speed comes from multiple attributes from the bowler

    * Run-Up and Rythm- The smoother the run-up the more momentum the bowler gets, thus the faster he bowls

    * Bowling action- An explosive bowling action can add vital pace, this involves an action that generates a lot of momentum and quick arm speed.

    * Muscle Mass- Obviously the bowler himself has to be strong too, hours in the gym will pay off
