    Speed Gun at training on Wednesday....

    So a guy has borrowed a speed gun from Queensland Cricket and is bringing it to club training on Wednesday.

    This excited everyone at the pub on Saturday and it is a good opportunity for bragging rights.

    So I was wondering if anyone has been tested on bowling speed with a speed gun, if so how fast was it?

    I will post back here later in the week to post my time.

    I've been timed at 59mph.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    The local Indoor cricket centre here has a speed gun on one of the courts sometimes, best Ive managed was 128km but I do bowl considerably faster in Indoor than I do in outdoor...

    128kph isn't too shabby. Similar pace as Jacob Oram

    What's the conversion from miles to kilometres? 1.6?

    I was 65kph when they had one at the Easter Show when I was 11 (and when I was all of about 4'7" and 34kg), so I'd like to think I'm a fair bit faster today lol. I'd love to have an opportunity, with my cricketing mates, to be measured on a proper radar.

    I remember when I was like 10 years old I got a platypus ball (among other things) for Christmas. At the time I was clocking just over 80km/h while my older brother (five years older than me) was clocking early to mid 120's. At this stage, I am now 15 years old and have consistently hit 126km/h.

    I know that someone will say that they will never give a true reading, but after bowling about 20 balls with it, I think it is pretty consistent... never been tested on a speed gun though.

    EDIT:
    Also, Perm, I'm pretty sure if he was willing to sacrifice a bit of line and length Jacob Oram could bowl a fair bit faster - I'm not trying to argue, I'm just saying, he generally bowls low 130's, but if you consider his size, strength and easy-going run-up, I think it would be quite possible for him to hit 140.

    I'm hoping I get a chance to as well. Soon would be great so I can see how much I've improved in the next 3 to 4 years. I'm 'probably' bowling at 110KM/PH. I have a 3 to 4 year plan to loose weight, gain muscle and work my way into an A grade team.

    I should be playing indoor cricket this year, which will be great for keeping my skills sharp instead of only playing cricket in summer. I've never done it before, but I'm planing on going to the nets often when it isn't raining in the winter as well, but mind you, I've never been as passionate and determened about Cricket as well.
    Your primary concern should be whether we get given justice in the next life. If so, I'd be in great trouble without Jesus.

    Effort ball 105 a few years back. Probably slowed down since then due to injury.

    I reckon about 50mph tops and that is very unaccurate bowling for me.

    I'm definitely bowling faster now than i was at the last CW Meetup, which was guessed at about 60mph. Only problem is that i've picked up a few injuries from football so had to resort to bowling spin at the last net session as i didn't feel confident putting weight down on one foot.
