msb1991 Posted January 14, 2015 Share Posted January 14, 2015 bhai im not making it up. there was a panel on this a few years ago which mark Nicholas hosted and all the legends of yesteryears were there. some MCC event But they have an incentive to lie and misremember things. Or maybe someone misinformed told them this information. There is no way that these speeds were recorded at the batsman's end. Thomson would have averaged 15 if he were that fast. I'm pretty sure members of CricketWeb approached the scientist behind it and he said that it was measured at the bowlers crease but heck, you don't need that evidence - watching the video makes it clear where the hi-tech cameras are. Thomson was 147kph after a long ban which means probably peaked at 160kph in his prime and mainly bowled in the 140-150kph region much like Akhtar and Lee.
