Best Fast Bowlers in Cricket History
The Top Ten
He was the king of swing. He had the ability to swing the ball both side as well. He is one of the finest bowler in cricket history. He is the best bowler in test and one day match.
No doubt that Wasim Akram is the best fast bowler in the World. He could have more wickets but unfortunately he was born where no fast pitches were available & he bowled on slow dead wickets but he proved his ability and became world's greatest fast bowler.
Wasim akram not only the best fast bowler but also one of the most finest bowler of all time.
Wasim Akram real king of swing best bowler ever in cricket history honestly speaking he is the best
No one can ever beat dale. Each and every batsmen will be scared about his bowling. In ipl he is the best bowler ever seen. So I vote him as the all time best bowler. There is no bowler like steyn and there will be never.
Now what happened. Right now even he is not getting place in playing eleven.
Swing, Pace, Accuracy, Action, Celebrations, Aggression and mastering ALL FORMATS was what Dale Steyn did in his career. Nothing more to achieve!
Dale steyn is the best fast bowler. He can swing the ball both the two sides. He is my favorite bowler. His bowling speed does not comes under 135 km/s.
Best opening bowler for any playing surface, he took important wickets everywhere he went. Unfortunately he explained lots of injuries towards the end of his career. All the best Stain Remover!
His line and length makes him the best. One of the few that could stop the laras and tandulkers.
He was a machine that just kept on going.
Mcgrath is far better bowler than Akram in test matches. His record, average strike rare, economy all better than akram in both forms of the game. In test which is real cricket he has 149 more wickets than Akram. His home & away record both are excellent. His percentage of wicket of top order batsman is much higher than Akram. Mcgrath is the most successful fast bowler in history of the game.
Length & line oodg very was bowling his & taker wicket great a was He
Number 1 Bowler
Best bowling in World Cup history
3 World Cup Winning Australia
McGrath is leading bowler
Brett lee is the world best fast bowler... I don't why he is 15% of vote... I love brett lee very much. His million dollar cute smile
One of the best pace bowlers I have ever seen in cricket history
Bret lee's fast is just so fast I don't know how the batsmen can hit brett lee's fast bowling he outstanding I have never seen a fast bowler so far
Brett Lee was my childhood hero. He was most deadliest bowler and quickest like light.
The greatest Fast bowler of them all
The complete bowler, could and did it all. Still considered the best by his peers and that counts for more than us cricket tragics reminiscing over our favourite era we grew up in.
The perfect combination of pace and consistency
Best fast bowler ever! Could bowl with sheer pace, deadly accuracy, could swing it both ways, could cut it both ways, and could bowl very long spells! Sheer class
Arguably the greatest of all time. Any pitch conditions,anywhere in the world. Could do it all
Best Bowler at peak
Westindies greatest when WI white wash England (may be twice)
How did he generate so much pace for a relatively short man? Died far too young and suspect suspect he would have been a great inspiration and coach to future generations in the WIS and much further afield.
Fast leg cutters either way, vicious bouncers rising at a good length but also could make the ball speed on with little bounce. Unplayable and a very nice person
How is he on number 13? He should be 1st! Absolutely an amazing bowler. Just Love him.
He was a like Thunder lightening..just love to watch him bowling
He is a top bowler in the world. He create the bowl, if pakistan won the champians tropy 2013 please please please shoib akher come back please.
Shoaib was more lethal faster and had more swing than lee...He deserves second position
Anyone who has seen him bowl during the early nineties, can't name any other bowler (including Wasim) to be better than Waqar. He was the most fearsome bowler of all times due to his unplayable toe crushing yorkers.
Our selector do not good with waqar younis
Great and number one great bowler in cricket history'i m big fan waqar younas is master blaster bowler
No one has much control on recerse swing as waqar had
Allan has experience against some of the bowlers in the world like tendulker ponting and kallis
A pleasure to watch this man bowl... Sheer class
I don't understand why he got only 2 percent he is the most dangerous fast bowlers in the world ever to the game
The smoothest bowling action ever. Poetry in motion.
He is one of the best bowler in India at the time of very bad situation he know how to bowl and he is yorker specialist
I think he should be in top 5 as he can take wickets on any pitch and he has done it a lot of times and
He is abowler who has a wonderful arm action and is the only spearhead in india team. He is an excellent bowler, must keep it up.
He is best swing bowler he is the best
wasim is best-left arm fast bowler but Ambrose is from another planet
13! Seriously? How on earth did you lot find 12 bowlers to put higher on the list? I suspect nepotism plays a big roll and that's just plain stupid. I'm from South Africa and I'm a big fan of Donald. He had probably the best bowling action, but never ever was he better than Ambrose. He was terrifyingly good when he was fired up, but he would not rate himself above the greatest of the great Windies bowlers. Same with Steyn. I think Steyn is the last of the great fast bowlers, but never ever better than Ambrose and Marshall. The presence of Zaheer is just pure number of dumbass votes. The real Indian fans know who the greatest fast bowlers where and they adored and respected them even though they didn't have greats themselves (with the possible exception of Kapil Dev, but still not top 10). Anyone thinking Malinga belongs in the top ten, smokes their socks. The rest I'm ok with, except the order. Brett Lee was truly awesome, but not number 3? My top 3 in no particular order is Akram, ...more
One of the toughest bowler I had ever seen, each delivery of his would look attacking d rib cage of batsmen
Tall, fast and scary... Rarely bowled a ball and when you riled him up, he would run through the opposition like a hot knife through butter. Remember Perth?
He's a Legend, I guess he's not higher because he's historic, but check his stats out.
The fastest and most accurate fast bowler with a memory for all batsmen's weaknesses. Like all quickies his speed died down with age but he became a cleverer and better bowler. Even the great West Indies sides of the 60's were afraid of Fred.
Great genuinely fast bowler whose test wicket haul was achieved in an era of five home tests and an overseas tour per year, not as today with 365 days a year cricket.
FIERY FRED.. The fastest English Bowler
He is my favorite he is in my top ten list
How can this spud be ranked higher than Hadlee?
Watson sir u r all rounder and hard hitter in legside pitch.
your batting style was amazing
I am your fan sir
He is the best bowler of some greatest bowlers I have ever seen.
Most effective and most graceful silent assasin. Somerimes even umpires wouldn't realize that he has passed them and bowler a ball. Truly the greatest.
Sheer pace and length.. Bowled the finest over in history to geoffrey boycott
Whispering death. Sublime grace and pace.
Malinga can bowl super fast reverse swinging yorkers in to your toe. He is a bower with slinging action and change the speed change the length regularly. I think when he is in mood greatest players even in big trouble. Beware of lion of Asia
The only bowler who has the unique bowling style and often used to take important wickets when his nation is in need
Malinga is the Best ODI and T20 bowler. No one can bowl in the death overs as he does.
He is the best death bowler ever. His inswinging yorkers terrifies the bowler. Even knowing that it comes, batsmen can not avoid getting out. He is the most accurate fast bowler ever
One of the best fast bowlers of all time. Him along with Akram are the best left arm quicks of all time.
great left arm swingbowler and fast.
His bowling action is wonderful then others
Voting for humid khan
Junaid khan is the best
How can this spud be ranked higher than Barnes?
TEST:bond only played 18 matches but amazingly got a staggering 87 wickets the reason was he had lots of unfortunate injuries. He had an amazing average of 22.09 and NZ's best strike rate:38.7 ODI:he has set 7 New Zealand records1. Best bowling in an innings 6/19 2. Best career average 20.88 3. The most 4 wicket-plus hauls 11 all of this in only 82 matches. WOW!
Number one bowler in nz
Shane bond only one best bowler in cricket history
No doubt he would be the best if he didn't have injuries.
Trent Bridge vs New Zealand this guy swung the ball like never seen
You can't put Anderson this low in the list. He is absolutely lethal with the duke's ball. Everything aside its just a pleasure watching him bowl.
In my opinion, Anderson is the best fast bowler and he deserves to be in the top 10 list.
Why this man isn't in at least the top 5 is ridiculous! About to be the highest wicket taker in the history of the game, a mere 400 years or so. Jimmy is class personified...
Worlds best alrounder + greatest showman
Most convincing player of 1948 invincible bradman team.best allrounder of game history.a great fast bowler with lindwall and johnston.
He should be the 2nd best pace bowler of all time after wazim akram
He is the best bowler but there is no jasprit bhumrah in the list.
He is a very fast bowler and deserves Ann award. I think there should be an award for best bowler in 2017
The best in the world at present and has done more than what others done in their entire carrier.
Could place the ball wherever he wanted. If bowlers were rated on stats he would be at the top
How can he not be the best.. Just take a look at the averages.. The stats never lie... Absolute perfectionist at swing bowling.. Terrorised the best. Especially later in his career.. Absolutely devastating. Carried a whole country. I'm sure everyone will look to who they like and by numbers he'll never get there.. But the stats don't lie
Look at the figures, this guy was in a team full if average players, he won games single handed. I'm not a kiwi but remember watching him bowl, he was a awesome bowler and I think it would take a good argument to put him out of a real top 3 of All time greatest bowlers
Hadlee was a game changer and all opposing teams knew it. When the ball was in his hands you knew New Zealand had a chance to win it, his present on the pitch alone was enough to put whole teams off their game.
Fastest Bowler Ever. He'll soon break Shoaib Akhtar's record. The Most lethal bowler when he is consistent. An absolute match winner. Won Australia the whole Ashes series 5-0.
Fastest Bowler. He'll son break Shoaib Akhtar's record. Most lethal Bowler when he gets it right.
An Intimidating Look In The Eyes, Tattoos On The Left Arm & Speed Over 150 km/h Is Enough To Say About The Ability Of This Man.
Recent Wicket Machine for Australia
Greatest when it comes to line and length next to Glenn McGrath
Just one word only- impeccable!
Remainders are history
The greatest all-rounder who was also a fast bowler and team captain!
He is a ever green all rounder in world cricket history
Simpy the most consistent All- Rounder.
He is wonder ful
