    Fastest bowlers in NZ?

    I was just wondering if anyone know of any NZ bowlers who can bowl at over 140 km/h? Th NZ Test team needs some pace.

    There are plenty of bowlers who could crank it up to 140K but that really doesn't mean a lot as that's hardly fast at the international level. I can't imgaine there would be any bowler in New Zealand currently that would be consistently over 140K, especially if McKay is suppsoed to be the quickest going around and he's around the 138-145 mark generally.

    McClenaghan pre-injury was apparently genuine fast, but I don't know what he's like now. Bennett is quick for a couple of overs before slowing down, Davis is quick, Milne, Kuru, Small and Mathieson are over 140kph apparently, and God knows what Sherlock is like now after his 67485th injury.

    There's also a bloke down in Otago but I forget his name.

    McKay is the only guy who has been clocked (fastest ball off the top of my head is 147kph) though. But at least one of McClenaghan, Kuru, Milne and Small should get on the speed radar at the Champions League. Bevan Small was one of the fastest bowlers at the U19 world cup.

    The thread starter didn't mention still playing...and i don't think Bond retired from all formats either. He is one of the bowlers that i admire outside Pakistan.....genuine pace and bounce...will miss him tests for sure.

    Bond has retired from all forms of cricket.
    Favorite XI: WG Grace, VT Trumper, IVA Richards, DCS Compton, FMM Worrell (c), GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), H Larwood, SK Warne, T Richardson, SE Bond

    Yeah he has. Sorry, I was taking the piss. NZ struggling for quality pace bowlers (as usual). Not a big history of bowlers with genuine gas in this country. But as Hadlee and McGrath proved - pace is NOT everything. It helps, but if you're a good bowelr, not essential.

    The moment I read the words NZ fast bowler, I think of the name Bond...Shane Bond.

    His retirement was a loss to cricket
    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    When he first came onto the scene, yeah. From what I hear, he's had back troubles and come back a fair bit slower, with a bit of an effort ball up his sleeve.

    McMillan? he's missed out on a contract for this season - injuries again curtailed his efforts last year.

    Remember seeing him in a State Shield game a few years back. **** he was bowling fast that day. But maybe he just looked that quick by comparison - the other bowlers in that game were really rather pedestrian (Sewell, Canning...).
