    Wahab Riaz and Talha bowling at 150kph !

    When asked the fast bowlers camp, he said: "We have some of the best in business attending the camp. Muhammad Talha and Wahab Riaz are delivering a speed of 140 plus and when the camp concludes they would surely cross 150 mark. We also have potential bowlers in the under-19 team. Amer and Rana are also good prospects."

    And?

    I think you're missing the point of that article.

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."

    Must be a hell of a camp if it can add 10kph of pace.

    Can we send Lee over? If he tops out at 150 now, maybe we can get him up to 160 consistently.....

    I think I bowl at 140+, but by the end of this weekend it should be up around 150+.

    I'm going to be at this camp for a whole month, after which I will be able to bowl at approximately one million KPH.

    Although that is a flippant remark, I heard that Lee had stress fractures in his back at 21 which caused him to remodel his action and helped him increase his pace up through to 160kph by 2001-2003 whereas he was about 15kph slower before his injury.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Will they single-handedly 'destroy' Aus, SA, Bang, Ind and SL?

    yawn..i'm sure the selectors won't give these new pace demons a fair chance and they will ed up playing domestic cricket fro the rest of their lives.

    Also 140kph isn't anything to boast about..and there is world of difference between 140 and 150 kph.
