Same speed as a normally pitched ball. And I've never had words with the opposition, I've just got on with the game. Yeah if they sledge you then give some back, but if it's a beamer then why bother? It's usually a mistake. That's why we wear helmets...Originally posted by Top_Cat
You said just acceptable. Maybe this is a function of how we take things but I took it too mean that you thought he was close to over-stepping the mark. My mistake.
At 130km/h+, they are most certainly NOT free hits; theyŕe actually quite dangerous. Ie been the victim of one bowled at me from someone whoḋ been clocked at 144km/h and I didnt even pick it up until it was right on top of me. Him and I had words after the game, let me tell you.
