Best Fast Bowlers in Cricket Historylionking_88
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.
Fastest bowler ever I see in my life. No chance for any batsman to play against him.226 Comments
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. - Sumit22

The world fastest bowler ever
How is he on number 13? He should be 1st! Absolutely an amazing bowler. Just Love him.
Shoaib was more lethal faster and had more swing than lee...He deserves second position
The world fastest bowler.67 Comments
First name on my all time team sheet
Best Bowler at peak
Westindies greatest when WI white wash England (may be twice)
Why not number 1
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.15 Comments
In era of great batsman and bowlers
he was always outstanding.
speed, control, swing, stamina in all conditions
The best of the best
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 - lionking_885 Comments
He was definitely better than Wasim Akram when both were at their peak. Easily more fearsome of the two, so Waqar Younis can't be below him in this ranking.
Bowled few 100mph
Best fast bowler ever.
Master of reverse swing...should be in top five, internal politics kept him away from the game for a while.33 Comments
Zaheer Khan is best bowling action.
Good bowling zaheer bhai
He is best swing bowler he is the best
Never seen a bowler like him in India25 Comments
Allan donald is the best from all above
Sheer pleasure to watch. Effortless and smooth with a vicious bouncer and get the ball to swing at pace.
Excellent Fast Bowler In South African Cricket History
A pleasure to watch this man bowl... Sheer class5 Comments
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
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
Malinga is the hero of my cricket world
Malinga is a legend.He also has the highest wickets in Ipl(170) from just 123 matches.In his prime days he was the most feared bowler in the world because of his deadly Yorkers.Even now though he doesn't have the pace he had before he has excellent variations so he is one of the best bowlers of all time30 Comments
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 - lionking_88
Whispering death. Sublime grace and pace.
You r the best bowler in the history of cricket8 Comments
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
He should be within 5
He is my mums cousin
For me he is best bowler after waseem akram10 Comments
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.
I wonder just how good he would be in the modern era.
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.3 Comments
Watson sir u r all rounder and hard hitter in legside pitch.

Best fast bowler ever
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 history4 Comments
One of the best fast bowlers of all time. Him along with Akram are the best left arm quicks of all time.
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
He is the greatest ever swing bowler. He mesmerized the batsmen with his ability to move the ball both ways whether new or old one. It was a great sight to watch his fluid run-up and bowling action.
An outstanding bowler.
Best Pace Bowler, having cool action yet very dangerous to batsmen. When he was in field, observers wanted to see him only. So cool was his personality, it was nice to watch the man on field. Unfortunately, he was in NZ team and played lesser tests than Aus/Eng. Cricket yet todate produce such cool action productive pace bowler.
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 bowlers10 Comments
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.
The best bowler ever in history. Absolutely smashes everyone
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.7 Comments
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.
What a joke. Nothing more needs to be said.
In my opinion, Anderson is the best fast bowler and he deserves to be in the top 10 list.12 Comments

He got 266 odi wickets
He is all time great for his country and entire world. He is a fighter. Love you Mash.
Are you trying to tell me that someone with a 41.52 bowling average is ranked at 26? This just proves that the voters know zero about Cricket, wake up to yourselves and recognize the greats of the game before these drop kicks.
He is a great dedicated player with very good bowling skills.10 Comments

He is the 2nd greatest left arm fast bowler of all time
He is most dangerous opening fast baller
I don't know why he is at the bottom of the list.. One of the greatest fast bowler of all times.6 Comments
Jeff Thompson should have been at top. Thompson is considered by many to be the fastest bowler of all time.He was the opening partner of fellow fast bowler Dennis Lillee; their combination was one of the most fearsome in Test cricket history.
West Indian batting legend Viv Richards, rates Thomson as the fastest he has ever faced.Indian batting great Sunil Gavaskar also reckons Thomson was the fastest he faced over a career spanning over 20 years. Former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd regards Thomson as the fastest bowler he has ever seen. Michael Holding, himself often considered an extremely fast bowler in his prime, believes Thomson to be the fastest he ever saw.
Amazing speeds, kept on going all day.
Can't believe he was left off the list. Fast, fast and then fast.
Short run-up and bang. Great to watch3 Comments
His line and lengh are so good...
So my brother is your friend and you are in RCB so my brother is like you very much because Virat Kohli is my brother's best batter

THE DEADLY WEAPON OF ENGLAND
The greatest his average per wkt is best1 Comment
The one bowler no batsman would want to face.. How is he not the best
For a period in the mid 80s this guy was virtually impossible to play especially in odis
Instead of voting for your favourite 20/20 player *cough* *Indians* *cough* take the the time and look at past players before you vote/comment. Having Joel Garner at 48 makes zero sense, this just shows how little you people actually know about cricket.
He's not even a fast bowler...
How is he on this list he isint even a fast bowler
A gentle giant with great precision and speed.
Deadly combo with ambrose
