    Even if he does we're unlikely to know it. The speed radar is only being used about once out of every 10 deliveries.

    Nah you only have to bowl fast for a little while to get into the New Zealand setup, then you can start bowling the same speed as all the other bowlers with less control and less movement, while still maintaining full rights to get picked ahead of much more deserving bowlers.

    lol I was seriously just thinking about Butler, specifically about him bowling Michael Vaughan with a 130kph half-volley in 2001/02. It was like he bowled Vaughan purely by supposedly being fast, was hoping Milne might be able to do the same.

    The other funny thing about Butler was that the 2008/09 onwards version of Butler was supposed to be an injury-wrecked medium pacer and a "bowling all-rounder". In reality he was bowling much the same pace as he did for a lot of his international career with the same action and run-up and was still only slightly better than a tail-ender.

    NICE

    And tbf Milne looks sharp and has been accurate so far with a hint of Bondesque in-swing

    That was a decent ball to get Sangakkara. Rather lucky to hit the seam though considering how wobbly it was. Is definitely quicker this over than his first.

    Lovely bit of bowling from Milne there. Probably the first time I've ever seen him hit a good length 2 balls in a row.

    That can't be right cos Danny Morrison was just saying this guy bowls 145k PLUS

    Anyway, I'm not meaning to troll Milne - he's bowling pretty well and obviously I want him to do well

    To be fair he's not a fraud pace-wise. We know he can bowl genuinely fast.

    In fairness, I'm not sure about the accuracy of the speed radar today. The only other delivery where the speed came up that I've seen was a quickish looking ball from Southee that measured at 117k.

    McMillan just said a ball was 142kph even though nothing came up on screen. He then went on to say that Milne was going to get faster over the next few years and that was "a good sign for New Zealand".

    We're struggling when Craig McMillan's attempts at fortune-telling based on absolutely nothing are our "good signs".
