My bad. Srinath was the 2nd fastest in that WC but he did bowl 154.5 in that WC.

 

Part of 1999 World Cup, Srinath touched 154.5 KMPH (96 MPH) mark on the speed gun to become the India’s quickest ball deliverer and the second fastest after Shoiab Akthar in that tournament.

Srinath retired just when Indian batting firepower was coming together as a unit - Sachin, Dravid, Laxman, Sehwag, Ganguly...and later Dhoni. And while he had Kumble bowling with him, even spin stocks were bare - an endless parade of journeymen like Nilesh Kulkarni, Bhardwaj, Joshi, Chauhan, Ashish Kapoor etc to partner Kumble. A horror show.

 

The more I go over his career, the more I get convinced of his status as the greatest Indian quick ever. I mean, look at the likes of Starc, Boult, Broad etc celebrated as modern greats. They bowl on conducive pitches and yet have a record that's within 2-3 runs of Srinath. Indian fans on a whole undersell Srinath massively.

srinath is a legend. one man army. imagine him next to booms and shami. Would wreak havoc. sub 25 level bowler who was unfortunate to play for a weak side.

Karthik Tyagi has potential ... In T20s, bowls consistently at 140+ (closer to 145) ... have not seen him in other formats 

 

In t20s from what I have seen many bowlers bowl many effort balls and hit 145 mark.. Can they sustain that pace and accuracy in tests is a different question often.
