    Guess at my bowling speed?

    So I was playing on Saturday and an opening batsman from a club 2nd XI kept leaving my balls so I wondered what was going on. The captain told me that I was too quick for him. I've been described as 'rapid' but could anyone take a guess? The rest of my bowling gave a truckload of edges so a rough speed estimate would be cool.

    Based on the exhaustive data you've provided, I'd put you at somewhere between 0 and 195kph.

    Being serious, do you have any footage of you bowling at all mate?

    If you want him to touch your balls, you're going to have to make them a little more accessible.

    Do you realize Athlai has no idea how fast you are, none of us know. Unless you have a speed gun reading your speed,Then anyone would only be guessing. It would be like me asking you how much does my leg spin turn. You would have no idea unless you saw it yourself.

    Drive around until you find a find a speed display traffic sign. Exit your vehicle, count 22 yards and bowl at the camera.
