It's pretty good he's managed to get his pace back up to the mid to late 130's. I remember when he was making a comeback for ND very much as a batting allrounder. Apparently before the back injuries he was clocked at 150kph
. NZ could have had quite a potent opening combination with Shane Bond the other opening bowler at the time.
