    Yeah, they are - they're due to momental errors in the recording equipment. Such readings are always removed from average-speed thingies and taken without seriousness.

    If the average speed was taken, we can assume that the bowler's speeds, as per the methods employed by TV channels, were at least 5kph higher than recorded here.
    they mention the fastest ball as well as the avg speed .... chk out the fastest ball of the bowlers

    What's your point about the top speeds?
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Indeed. But if it is the average speed, then it will be lower than the speed noted on TV in modern times which is the speed a split second after delivery. This is because the ball loses pace in the air and off the surface.

    i m lost here, i thought average speed would be X+Y/2 but you can have X or Y > avg speed

    but you said that this was measured over 18 yards vs 22 yards now-a-days and it takes the ball less time to reach 18 yards than 22 yards, so i guess things even out at the end of the day

    From popping crease to popping crease is 18 yards (or perhaps it is 20), but it is NOT 22.

    The speed in the youtube video that you posted is the average speed. The speed seen on TV is the speed a split second after release. Therefore, the speed seen on TVs will be higher.

    The ****ing cheat new how to win it. While all others bowled short stuff and length stuff, he bowled yorkers and full tosses. Cannot see how Holding not getting to 140s if he were serving up full tosses to the speed gun. Thommo was definietly told before hand how to register highest speed.

    Re measure it using both horizontal and vertical vectors, and you see Thommo is nothing seriously quicker than Holding or others.
