    Lol...fastest was Jeff Thompson...Thompson bowled 100mph when the speed was recorded when it reached the batsman, not in the first 1.5 yards from the release from the bowlers hand as in the case of modern speed recording. The ball looses around 8% to 15% speed after release till the time t reached the batsman. So Shoaib's 100 mph would reach the batsman at 90 mph, fast but not as fast as Thommo whose ball reached the batsman at 100 mph, so it was way faster than Shoaib's.

      I have seen all the bowlers listed, but none of them are/were as fast as Frank Tyson was. His pace was electric. When he was at his best in the mid 1950's there were no speed radars apart from military devices which were not available for common use. For him not to be included in this list shows just how flawed it is

    2. Stevo
      Stevo August 19, 2019 17:37

      This speed was also taken from 1975! I think that’s after his shoulder reco crashing into Alan Turner.
      Looking at early seventies footage he is clearly faster back then albeit a bit wayward!

    3. Tim
      tim December 27, 2019 16:15

      As someone else posted, not including Frank Tyson is utterly ridiculous, even though there were no radar guns in his day to measure his speed by. No less an astute commentator than Richie Benaud, who faced Tyson, claimed he was even faster than Jeff Thompson at his peak. Go look at the still sequences of Tyson bowling and you can clearly see how much speed he must have generated - and why his body soon broke down under the stress.

      As for both Thompson and Lillee, two points. Lillee was not the same fast bowler after his back issues from the early 70's, and yet was still very very sharp. Those who saw him bowl against the rest of the world side in 71-71, before he fractured his lower back, will tell you he was frighteningly fast, as his figures in Perth against a formidable batting side attest. Go look at footage of his early run to the crease, as well as his action, and it clearly shows how fast he must have been. The speed gun test in the mid 70's measured Thompson from end to end, not out of the hand, on a dead Adelaide practice pitch, and tests have shown that the ball gets slowed up dramatically off the pitch - some have tried to recalculate the result by factoring in the pitch and have estimate he was bowling out of the hand at around 105mph. No less an authority than 'whispering death' himself, Michael Holding, who was no slouch in the speed stakes and played alongside the likes of Andy Roberts and Malcolm Marshall, has stated that Thompson was at least 10 miles an hour quicker than any of them. Who better to judge than a guy who not only faced Thompson, but saw most of the great West Indian fast bowlers himself, both as team mates and as opposing bowlers in domestic cricket back in the Caribbean and on the fields of county cricket in England?

      I saw Mohammad Zahid bowl 180-190kph in every domestic game on slow Pakistani pitches. So he’s the No. 1
      More than a hundred cracked ribs and skulls and broken wrists and displaced toes. That was like his “only job”.
      Bouncers going for sixes always. Broken bats were a normal thing and stumps shattering were not unusual.

      Troll Warlord March 28, 2020 05:45

      Such a misleading comment by you. Watch Shoaib akhtar's bowling videos and you can see that he was by far, the fastest. Stop being a jealous ass !

    7. Frederick
      Frederick June 7, 2020 01:48

      Jeff Thomsons speed was measured at the batting end, whereas the rest were measured at the bowling end. There is a fall of 15 to 20 kph when the ball reaches the batting end!

    1. Ian Senior
      Ian Senior September 7, 2019 15:56

      100 miles per hour, rather than part-miles per hour ,is 99.50 mph to 100.49 mph. Consequently, Thompson and Starch are also 100 mph bowlers.

    2. Tim
      tim December 27, 2019 16:24

      Rather belated, but there is a sequence of shots available that show his incredible action - the whippet-like manner in which he runs in and delivers, coupled to the enormous follow-through, clearly suggest that a great amount of speed was imparted to the ball. Such an action couldn't hold up however, and injuries soon got to him and forced him to retire in his late 20's, but for a few glorious seasons he was a frightening spectacle. A thorough gentleman off the field who became a scholar and much loved figure in Australia in later years.

  5. Leon

      Yeah, The 1970 or 71 was Australia vs Rest of the World captained by the greatest all-rounder to this day, Sir Gary Sobers.
      Lillee was at the peak of his form (before his back stress fracture).
      The game was a token one-off “replacement” due to a cancelled tour to South Africa because of apartheid.

      Going by my memory, Australia batted first and put up a big score. Then Lillee smashed the ROW for something like 56; taking 8 for 28! At the break Gary went over to the Aussie dressing room asking words to the effect of “who is this guy Lillee, bowling bouncers at everyone?”
      When the ROW followed up Gary smashed all the bowlers, including Lillee for 252 not out. Sir Don Bradman was there, and commented that it was the best batting he had ever seen in Australia. That’s saying a lot from the man himself, who faced Harold Larwood in the notorious Bodyline series. I think he also faced Typhoon Tyson and another terror, Fred Truman, both Brits.
      Lillee says in his autobiography, that in the second innings he suddenly fell ill!

    I can remember when Lillie and Thompson faced off against each other in a televised test of the fastest. Both were then in the Aussie team. So 1970s. I think both were clocked at over 100mph. Thompson won by a whisker for speed. Think Lillie won accuracy - less no balls and more wickets hit. Ok, it was not a match but simply a speed test of the two. Sadly I cannot recall how they measured it. Off the hand, at the wicket or average speed for the length of the pitch. I suspect it was an average speed for the 22 yards! In which case . . . can Channel 9 find that footage and let us know?

    Shoib Akhtar was having raw pace only but he was not a complete fast bowler but though Wasim Akram was less pacy but he was much better a fast bowler than Shoib.

    Jeff Thomson could be the fastest bowler of all time, as in old time speed was measured at batsman end, now its measured at the time of release.
    Another super quick bowler was Michael Holding.
    Skill wise though, best were Malcolm Marshall, Wasim Akram, Waqar, Steyn, Shane Bond etc (included only right/left fast)

    1. Sourav Das
      Sourav Das December 20, 2019 18:26

      There is no authentic source of his speed in any international match.
      However, the University of Western Australia once times his speed at 154.8 km/h in 1975.

  24. André Steyn December 28, 2019 10:47

    I once delivered a ball at 189.7km/h. This delivery was faster than any of these mentioned. However, I did this in 1848. So the actual speed could not be officially recognized.

    The fastest was Fred Trueman followed by Bran Statham. According to Boycott they were faster than Roy Gilchrist who broke Contractor's head like an egg shell and was banned from cricket as being too dangerous. Comparable to them was Amar Singh, the first and only genuine pacer from India to date. whose ball according to Bradman came to you "like the crack of doom".

    1. Sourav Das
      Sourav Das January 2, 2020 18:31

      I'm agreeing with you. But, you need to understand that we can't take anyone's word of mouth as the final verdict.
      We need proper speed measured by tools. And, the players you have mentioned here don't have that records.

  26. Bill Hobba

    Speed guns were only introduced recently so to find out the fastest of all time you must use something else. Only four bowlers have hit the sight screen on the full from a bouncer: Frank Tyson, Charles Kortright, Roy Gilchrist and Jeff Thomson. The fastest of all time is one of those. The thing about Thommo was he could bowl fast all day - his stock ball at his fastest was basically a bouncer on a good length that could not be called for short pitched intimidatory bowling - it was not short pitched, and he could do it all day. Ian Chappell said he was the only bowler that was un-hookable - the ball on a hookable length went over your head, those of the right height simply came on you too quick from a normal length you had - well basically wear it or somehow get out of the way. Viv Richards said when he hit that length at his pace it was goodbye - even for him - he will get you. Frank Tyson was normally very quick, but every now and then would produce a ball that was visibly quicker, so quick the crowd would gasp. The others I am not as familiar with. By reputation from that group Frank Tyson's fastest was just a whisker faster then Thommo's fastest, but he only bowled it every now and then, So my answer is Frank Tyson.

    1. Deb
      Deb January 19, 2020 20:41

      Thommo, Shaun Tait & Michael Holding.

    Fastest Bowler as I had seen is Pattrick Patterson of west indies. He did not last in world cricket because he dId not have any variation in bowling rather than only pace. Yeah! Its true that Shoaib Akhter and allan donald also had pace in their bowling but if compared with equal parameters and instruments patterson who was once renounced by batterson in sports star magazine, will be proved to be the fastest bowler ever.

    1. Sourav Das
      Sourav Das January 22, 2020 18:28

      There are several great fast bowlers that spent small stints in international careers. But, we don't have any specific speed measured.

      Kindly search the net. The speedgun encountered an error while measuring Matheesha's ball against India that day. So, ICC rejected the claim of his 175 km/h ball.

      He is yet to deliver his best if you are talking about the under-19 guy who recently made the sensation.

    Roy Gilchrist, Frank Tyson and Jeff Thomson must be the top three fast bowlers of all time in terms of sheer speed. Sir Gary Sobers rates Roy Gilchrist and Frank Tyson as the fastest he has faced or played with.

      As we have already told in many comments before. We only considered those players with recorded speed during an international match. We didn't take anyone's word as proof of someone's speed.

    No when Thompson bowled his speed was recorded as 96mph which is considered 100mph as per modern times speed measurable so shoaib is still the fastest bowler

      His ball was measured in 1975 through a sonic camera. But you need to understand that they measured the release speed. That is a bit different than how it is measured now.

    Roy Gilchrist, ordinary height, standing upright, his arm reached his knee, this baffled the batsmen most. He was sent back from Indian Tour by his captain Stollmeyer for not obeying his instruction, not to bowl bouncers at Stollmayers Indian college mate.
