    World Crickets speed demons

    There is many of them around but these are the bowlers that make you want to watch cricket, with their long run ups and thundering pace are a real sight and to fall into this bracket for me you got to deliver it at over 95 mph in flat out conditons not in places light south africa esprcially where ur at altititude and sppeds would be abnormal so here the are: Lee, Akhtar, Bond, Harmsion, Sami and Edwards. To u blokes who is the best for me its Brett Lee

    Tino Best is at least as quick as Fidel Edwards.

    The most developed quick bowlers in the world are Shoaib and Brett. Harmison strikes me as a fast-medium/fast bowler. That is, he can bowl deadly spells, but when he's off, he's ordinary fast-medium. Brett bowls fast whether he's on or off, hence he's a more developed quick bowler.

    A well-developed bowler of pace is another matter. That would be the likes of Marshall, Lillee etc. None exist at the moment, though Jason Gillespie is close.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I like ur last poitn ther mate. Yeah i agree that best is as quick has edwards but edwards has passed that 95 mph delivery though, but i dont hink think u can say harmison is fast medium he goes over 90 consistently and in every series since hte carribean tour last year he has produced at least one delivery over 95 mph

    Shoaib's the best fast bowler imo but is useless after he's bowled his 5 overs.

    Except evidence now suggests he is no longer a fast bowler. Prior to his injury though, I'd agree with you.

    During the series out here as a whole Brett Lee was more useful.... to me that says something given that he didn't even bowl a ball....

    I wish the poms would stop pushing harmison as an express bowler because hes not even close. His average would be in the 130s and i doubt hes even got close to 150 let alone over it.

    His performance in test matches have been an embaressment so far (that doesn't mean he can't deliver in future ) untill he get a place in test team and delivers, he can't be considered atall.
