    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    It is believed that Jeff Thomson may have bowled some balls at over 100 mph in the 1974-75 Ashes series. Bowling speeds were not displayed back then. Certainly he was timed at 99 mph in tests (as opposed to Tests) and the sight of a Pommie batsman at the other end might have put an extra couple of mph into the delivery.

    :O, BTW I've got a book on cricket records, and a batting team got 6 byes, its the only on record, he bowled a bouncer that fast, it went over the boundray without the batsmen touching it, I'll type the book up later, and post it in a new thread.

    You can't bowl six byes without overthrows being involved.

    Even if a bouncer goes over the boundary without another bounce?

    :O I'd heard of him half-volleying the sightscreen at Perth but never knew he'd actually got it over the rope on the full.

    In the (near enough impossible) event of that, it'd be four byes (or five wides more likely).

    That fastest ball in the youtube clip was just so easy for Knight to play, I guess he was one of the top 2 openers in the World in the 1995 to present era.
