Finn and Broad noticeably have even bowled a number of balls in the 120s, both were more 140kph when timed in England
They do all seem to be down on pace, or the speed guns in England are not exactly spot on. Wouldn't say England have any fast bowlers, but they have some that are capable of putting in very sharp spells.
Tremlett's another one, he's normally around 140kph, 87mph, but is more 82/83mph in this series.

Yeah. Don't have much doubt the radar is off. Some of the balls Tremlett and Johnson bowled were up there for sure. I don't know what that bouncer Johnson bowled to Collingwood registered yesterday, but fmd it was a hairy old nut.
Yeah seeing Johnson beating people for pace so often it's hard to imagine that's bowling in the 130s. High 140s surely.
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
Nah, it's exaggerated that the bowlers are down on pace. I imagine a fast, bouncy pitch can make deliveries look genuinely 'quick'. Out of all the bowlers, the only one I can think of who's consistently down in speed is Anderson.

How would you know how quick Tremlett and Finn are in CC matches? In List-A games I've seen both touch 90mph occasionally, and I can believe this. I'm always seen Tremlett as a Medium-Fast bowler operating around the early to mid 80s. I imagine alot of bowlers are quicker when they have a maximum of 10 overs.
