And whatever happened to Meaker?

Saw him bowl at Taunton a couple of years ago, he was proper quick that day noticeably quicker than Dernbach and had all the batsmen hopping around.

I remember thinking at the time this guy as got to be one of the quickest around.

Nay so much last year. Similar to Wor Plunky, started at 86ish, dropping as the day went on.

Mark Foottit was the quickest I saw last season. Definitely up a notch by comparison with Meaker.

My top 3 would be...
1. Archer looked effortless and clocked 153.8kph in the Bangladesh Premier League just before Christmas.
2. Mills not only bowls around that mark but also bowls a heavy ball.
3. Footitt has bowled some really quick spells the last few years and bowls with an action that's difficult to pick up.

Mills is a joke compared to Archer as confirmed by the players during BBL.

Even at his supposed pace he gets smacked to all parts while Archer who bowls rapid and without all those stupid variations is very difficult to hit cos he gets immense bounce and bowls way heavier balls.

 Anyone else think it is hilariously unfunny that we don't know?

 Relying on data from the Bangladeshi league to judge how quick our bowlers are when the kit to measure it could be bought for all 18 counties for 3 months of the CEO's salary...

Foottit has always been injury prone and is 32 now. He would have gone to Australia if he'd stayed fit and maintained his early season form last year. His time has probably passed now.

Might be one for the 'best never to play for England' lists inyears to come?

Same kit was used in the BPL as it was for T20 blast this year...
And cost for 18 counties for every days play would not be a wise investment strategy.

I should add, the way the county season is structured now didn't help Foottit's cause last year.  He was on fire and then there was no championship cricket. He wasn't in Surrey's one-day team, so wasn't getting a first-team bowl. By the time the championship returned, he had moved county and picked up an injury.

Just how much do you think speed guns are? A could probably find some for a few hundred dollars.. Video tracking for even less.

 I'm not talking about the full Hawkeye with ball tracking and snicko etc, just the speed of the bowlers being logged.

 Paying Tom Harrison over 600,000 a year is a wise investment strategy but a bit of low tech kit is too expensive??

Video tracking please explain this further, I don't understand.

Speed guns aren't used for speeds anymore. It comes out of the ball tracking systems.

I didn't comment on the board or if that's wise investment. Totally different argument.

Some other names to keep an eye on are Saqib Mahmood at Lancs who was clocked at 92 while working with the fast bowling program, and Olly Stone at Warwicks (used to be Northants) who many reckon can be up there with the quickest if he stays fit.

Not sure if he's been mentioned but Tom Barber at Middlesex is the fastest they've ever clocked at the National Academy at 94mph.
