From whatever little I have seen of his bowling, Chameera hovers around 140K and can hit 145+ on his effort deliveries.

I remember in early 2000, Dilhara Fernando used to hit 148+ at will. I was surprised to see a Sri Lankan bowling at that pace. Sadly, those were the days of Shoaib Akhtar and Brett Lee . Dilhara Fernando was never recognized for the pace he used to generate!

@express bowling Do u remember?

Yes.

 

Perfect height & build for a pacer .... hit the deck type.

 

Jayasuriya called him a  " quick fast bowler " once     : )

 Kumara bowls 135 k to 146 k

 

Chameera used to bowl 135 k to 148 k before his injury.... is bowling 132 k to 145 k nowadays

 

Most nations seem to be producing brisker bowlers these days. Except Pak I guess.
