    Use this thread to follow the pacers performance in this year’s PSL

    Head lots about the likes of Ilyas, Musa, Harris Rauf, Hasnain that they are good bowlers who can bowl at pace. Interested to see how they go

    Then Karachi have got Aaron Summers who apparently bowls at good pace too.

    Will also be interested to see how the familiar faces Amir, Junaid, Hasan, Wahab, etc fare as compared to the newer guys.

    Will anyone be able to beat Sami or Wahab for the quickest ball ? Shame Nasim Shah got injured, apparently he is the quickest of the new lot.

    How reliable are the speed guns used for the PSL? Are they the same ones used in the UAE during international matches or does it vary based on the broadcaster?

    Instead of a someone beating Sami or Wahab in a T20 league by clocking 150 (or above) but possess brain of a lizard, I would rather have someone who can bowl at 140-144kph, keep it tight and move the ball on both sides.

    Its a separate discussion but it surprises me that Pakistan doesn't produce more guys like Zahid and Akhtar. I have myself seen guys bowling insane pace at local grounds of Pakistan.

    The golden days. It is said that Zahid was close to 100mph. We will never know. Akhtar was a different beast.

    Watching Mark Wood bowl brought back those memories.

    So far Wahab has been the fastest bowler on display. Fastest he bowled was 146. Haris is in at 2nd with a speed of 145.

    Also, Amir and Hasan Ali also bowled a few in the 140s. Don't know why they lose pace in internationals.

    Very impressive. Its not just the pace, he's bowling with good control at that pace & hitting the blockhole regularly

    He bowled very fast today, few balls were between 146 and 148, wow.

    One thing I am but wary of is his fitness. He seems to be breathless after every few deliveries. A lot of effort in his bowling.

    Shaheen hit 147 btw, some serious pace, trundlers galore in Pakistan but few guys can bowl fast if they want to.

    Certainly encouraging but they need to break the shackles and put a shift in during test matches and ODIs too.

    I remember Hasan Ali bowled 148ks in a LOI against Aus or NZ recently too

    Shoaib post 2003 was breathless after every ball - didn’t stop him putting in some great performances

    I'm guessing it would be the same people doing the filming and the review equipment as the ones who do it for international matches for Pakistani channels.

    Shaheen bowled in the mid 130ks today, I saw one delivery at 140kph but nothing faster.

    Rahat bowled in the mid 130ks too. Wahab bowled some in the mid 140ks 138kph, 140kph, 136kph, 137kph, 138kph, 131kph, 134kph, 135kph, 139kph, 137kph, 139kph, 137kph, 134kph, 138kph, 134kph, 135kph,

    Harris was the fastest today with one at 147kph and the others in the 140ks or late 130ks

    Mohammad Sami is still in the 140s this year. Very impressive for his age.
