    I've never said, as I tried to point-out on several occasions, that Hussain has neccessarily contributed more to his side's outcome than Hayden, though he did, many, many times, do so.

    I've merely tried to suggest that Hayden's would, unlike most, be vastly different had he played at a different time.

There's probably someone really obvious I'm overlooking though.
    Mbangwa was low 70s mph (as was Bryan Strang - 72mph was the fastest he was ever timed at), which for me is medium-pace and nothing more, and extremely rare to see in intl cricket. Dunno what that is in kph.

    I'm sure Harris would have been selected as a specialist bowler had he been one. Sadly, he was too good a batsman for NZ to get the chance.

    Mbangwa for slowest seamer imo

    I recall him struggling into the wind, possibly at the Basin Reserve, and struggling to just nudge over 100kph!

    He's a shortaess, yeah?
    He's mostly around 120kph (75mph) or there are spells where he is a good 3-4 mph slower than that.

    I think 72mph is around 115kph.

    Haha, remember Bryan Strang from Brian Lara Cricket 99. That Zimbabwe team in that game was awesome. And he was a left arm swing bowler as well.

    Alternatively, you could say we're now into the following week.
