Default Best Fast bowling

There are days in cricket where by luck fast bowlers of a particular team makes impact in cricket. So i think pakistan had their most successful years of fast bowling in 1992-1994, west indies 1984, england 1998, australia 1980, south africa 1995 and finally new zealand is the only country nowdays in cricket who somehow tries fastbowling (without swing)!

Perfect fastest bowlers in cricket history are very few, allan donald(SA), michael holding(west indies) and chris old(england). These bowlers never tried swinging the ball, neither cutters. They had athletic ability and were tall. They bowled consistently quick with a nagging offstump line-length. Many batsmen would edge to the slips or would see their off-stump flying wayback. Indian sunil gavaskars footwork batting against chris old shear speed in test matches is worth watching. (funny thing in cricket that a single batsman plays a whole innings).

The best fast bowling eleven are:

- Glenn McGrath (Australia)
- Richard Hadlee (New Zealand)
- Wasim Akram (Pakistan)
- Waqar Younis (Pakistan)
- Curtly Ambrose (West Indies)
- Imran Khan (Pakistan)
- Malcolm Marshall (West Indies)
- Dennis Lillee (Australia)
- Allan Donald (South Africa)
- Joel Garner (West Indies)
- Fred Trueman (England)

Fred Trueman set the fast-bowling standard back in the 50s an 60s. He was the first fast bowler to break the 300 test-wicket mark. Even decades after he graced the field, cricket pundits mention his name as one of the greatest of all time.

Default hmmm

Fred trueman run-up is short and bowling action is front-on slingshot. Fitness and enthusiasm of fred trueman is way too high. More than 2000 first-class wickets(no one days). In modern day, bowlers won't even take 450 wickets in first-class matches. The rotation of the bowling arm seems way too quick even of harold larwood. Instead richard hadlee's bowling is very amusing. I think richard hadlee is shelved in cricket. I haven't seen not even a single match of richard hadlee on tv! I mean even joel garner matches are shown on tv sometimes and even of waqar younis, malcolm marshal, devon malcolm, denise lillee...etc. But richard hadlee big career is hardly mentioned. It seems was a time when new zealand cricket of 1970s lacked even medium pacers. Most seamers were like clooney circus and fragle rock hairdo. Richard hadlee then perhaps played kerry packers new zealand team in cool light brown black trousers. I tried to study richard hadlee bowling action in youtube and still can't figure it out. Very simple run-up and a complex side-on bowling action. Wicket to wicket impact bowling. Many batsmen as i had seen in youtube became confused playing blinders against quick speed of richard hadlee. Even australian bret lee nor the present day new zealand bowlers can bowl such bowling. Funny that bowling skills differ from player to player in cricket and not just bowling quick like west indies. I think in 1994 many indian newcomers had trained in new zealand fast bowling schools and denise lillee pace academy. Indian bowlers wanted to make impact in modern cricket, but did not succeded. Though the modern new zealanders were improvised bowlers like d.morrison, d.nash, s.doull, s.o'connor! Chris cairns medium fast bowling action is similar like richard hadlee but line-length not exactly.

As i had once measured the 22 yard pitch with a measuring tape and i found it very very long, hard to bowl with a heavy season ball. The distance with which i play cricket is from the bowling crease 22 walkable steps to the batsman stumps. In coaching clubs its 25-28. But then bowling in nets would be useless ineffective straight bowling. People say that the season bowlers have 6 ft to 6 ft 5inch heights with high arm reach to play the 22yard pitch. But then on tv i feel very amusing as when the fast bowlers are bowling the pitch seems long, whereas when spinners are bowling the pitch(becomes short) seems just 18 walkable steps! Spinners would infact find it difficult to bowl on a 22yard pitch. The batsmen too take ease while running between wickets just a casual jog! So cricket is a mystery if its played correctly or not, maybe just a funny entertainment camerawork! Lets say if the pitch were short, then i think guts of batsmen are very high. Like n.sidhu playing ata-ur-rehman fast bowling. Another fast bowler paul jarvis bowled n.sidhu very funny. Another great bloopers was courtney walsh's slow loop beamers to ian healy in tests. From the side camera the pitch does look short.

I bought a soft leather baseball and tried bowling. And it has unnatural bounce just like the bouncers bowled by new zealand fast bowlers in test matches. Whereas no one ever wears a helmet even in nets!
