    In the past the likes of Johnson, Harris, and Siddle when the mood takes have been 140s, pushing in to the 150s.

    Anderson has been in the 140s and Broad is a bit like Siddle- sometimes 130s/140s, occasionally borderline express and pushing 150.

    Throughout this series EVERYONE seems to be fully 10kph down on pace. Must be the radars.
    AWTA. Been thinking that all summer.

    Finn and Broad noticeably have even bowled a number of balls in the 120s, both were more 140kph when timed in England

    Better than 2001 when the radar gun was curiously not switched in in England every time Lee bowled

    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.

    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.

    Tremlett's is consistently down, as is Finn's when you compare to what they register in England. Broad's was also down, not going off how it looks, going by what the speed gun says.

    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.

    yeah, but I watch these Aussie bowlers year in year out, and they are all I would say 7-8kph down across the board. Definitely something up with the radars.
