 As per the title really...

James Pattinson, George Garton, Kyle Abbott all spring to mind as hitting 90 mph. Mark Wood if and when he plays. Jofra Archer is more high 80s

Apparently Gleeson from Northants that Bumble tipped for an England call is sharp but I havent seen him bowl

Somerset's Jamie Overton is definitely one of the quickest on the county circuit. Shame he seems to be injured a lot of the time.

The above mentioned overseas guys are all in the picture. Other than that anyone on the ECB PACE programme has a shout. Wood on his day, Tom Barber bowled some quick spells in white ball cricket for Middlesex last year, unsure if he will get a go in the red ball format.

Most guys will bowl their quickest in the first month or two of the year, after that the cumulative fatigue of schedule starts to become an issue unless guys are rotated, which most counties cant do due to squad sizes.

Jofra Archer who is faster than Tymal Mills as confirmed by matthew Wade keeping to both.
150kph+ searing pace.

Jack Shantry?! 😂

It'll be interesting to see how Archer develops in the next couple of years

The quickest spells I saw in the flesh were from James Pattinson and Mark Footitt.  What was really impressive with both of these was that they sustained their pace through the full day. 

The usual names apart from that - Garton looks rapid, Archer has the potential to be, though when I saw him at Hove last year his pace dropped markedly as the day went along, to the stage that he was not much more than medium pace in the final session.  Jamie Overton could get up there if he was ever fit, though a word of caution that he strikes me as a bowler lacking in craft.

What else?  If Matt Fisher gets another season without injuries, he will be back up around 90mph, though he is more of a McGrath type bowler.

Keep an eye out for Chris Sole at Hampshire this season. Son of Scotland Grand Slam captain David and capable of serious pace when he's in rhythm.

Didn't get to watch much last season but in the 2 before when I watched a lot, easily the quickest with the red ball was Footit. Consistently quick enough through each spell but the effort ball was furrrrkin rrrrapid. White ball, Overton is sharp, James Fuller also genuinely quick. Oh and Rabada makes county batsmen look like muppets, but that's not the answer you're looking for ha.

The speedo has said Mills is quicker every time I've seen them bowl together. But as its T20 and they are only bowling 2 over spells its probably not a relevant point in this topic anyway

Shame that England haven't been able to utilise Footitt in the Test team, when he took those early season wickets I thought he might be the dark horse in the Ashes squad A La Tremlett in 10/11

Gleeson would be a real rags to riches story. Northants plucked him from obscurity. He was playing minor counties for Cumbria, and playing his club cricket at Blackpool.

Played against him a few times. He was quick by league standards, but I wouldn't have said he was express. I guess he might have put on a yard or two since getting taken in to the county set up.

Am I right in thinking Helm is reasonably nippy?

And whatever happened to Meaker?

Atif Sheikh is fearsomely quick. Has trouble locating the cut strip though.
