Cricket is a game which is considered to be dominated by batsmen. But if one looks closely at it, there have been instances where the bowling has also dominated the game. The pride of bowling and the jewel of any cricket line-up is a genuine fastest bowler. Over the years the art of fast bowling has evolved in varied ways.
With this evolution have come different styles and techniques, with newer speed records. As such it is very difficult to make a list of the top ten fastest bowlers of all time, for the conditions, techniques and situations in which the bowlers played over the years have changed radically.
Here we present a compilation of the top 10 fastest bowlers based both on speed, accuracy and perception.
