Isn't he like 45 now though?
listen to the sound off Anderson's bat. Brutal.
Corey Anderson bowling with some real heat here, that wicket ball was clocked at 141.

It's a pity he's struggling to find his radar because Anderson bowls a heavy ball, gets good bounce and is ****ing sharp on the radar. High 130s with a bouncer in the 140s. Has had good spells with the ball before so hopefully this is just some one off puss because he has the raw assets to be test standard on bowling alone.
Peeps here and on the radio are saying our domestic is 30% better than what it was 5 years ago. Hope this brings an end to domestic journeymen averaging 60 or 70 for the season by hiding down the order at number 6. Would like to look at a guy averaging 50 and knowing that he is a gun.
Also hoping this translates to a better national team.
These bowlers are passing the Sinclair test (can you get him out) but I miss the Pinga test.
Bowler A is soooo good. Swings the ball, 140 PLUS!!!!111
*Pinga smashes Bowler A for 250 (150)*
But yeah the influx of quality bowlers should ultimately result in either improved batsmen or 200 all out being a winning total.

From Boult v Starc thread:
Agree, he looked quick at the ground too, but then again he was bowling at Michael Papps. We all know that he always ****s himself when facing anything at 135k above waist height.
As a measuring stick, Shaun Tait was clocked at 144, which given that he was still recovering from injury doesn't seem too slow. Still it could be that the stadium was using different speed-gun technology that estimates bowlers at slower speeds.
itbt high 130s for a bouncy left armer is more than sufficient if they bowl well, but we'll see how they all clock up over the entirety of the season. I loved Bradley Scott tonight bowling under 120 then in the last over of the match fired in a 137kph yorker.
I was gutted Tait didn't hit the 150s. I want to see someone not from CD or important to NZ get roughed up.
Speaking of Papps, we're about to tour South Africa and he hit a double ton. Must be his turn on the merry go round again. World cricket needs Steyn back in top form as well.
Hah, reckon there's an argument that could be made that Guppy shouldn't go to SA. His technique is a mess, and he won't benefit from 4 single figure scores in the republic. Send a sacrificial lamb (Can Papps catch?) in his place and get Guptill's confidence and technique restored on the Eden Park tarmac.
