I said mostly.
He's had the odd spell where he's cranked it back up again.
Glen McGrath my undisputed choice there are times when stats tells only half of the story same with pidge his stats will say how many wickets he took but it won't tell you how many wickets his partners got due to relentless pressure he created and his accuracy is one which might make a bowling machine look poor.
That over is reputed to be the "greatest of all-time" (may be over-egging it a bit, but you get the picture). I've seen 3 of the 6 balls.
And if pace was all there was to it, it'd not have been such. The ball was going all over the place, at high speed, and every ball was in the right areas.
Something's not quite right about this Morgieb account IMO...
McGrath is not medium pace. He's bit above it IMO.
best medium pacer in test cricket - Lohmann. No one can beat his record. When considering modern bowlers, Vass is quite special at a pace of 73-78 mph. Vaas was once a bowler who can get to 85mph regularly, but that was about 7-8 years back. He gradually have slown down.
Maharoof is too quick for a medium pacer. Gets to high 80s when on song. Otherwise he is 80-85mph bowler.
Best ODI medium pacer - a toss between Gavin Larsen and Chaminda Vaas.
