Lee breaks speed gun record

Lee breaks speed gun record
CricInfo - 8 March 2002


Brett Lee bowled the fastest delivery ever recorded by speed gun, clocking 98.4 mph (157.4 kph) with a ball to South Africa's Jacques Kallis on the first morning of the second Test in Cape Town.

The first ball of the 17th over just beat Pakistan's Shoaib Akhtar's 98.2 mph (157.2 kph), which was registered in a one-day international against Australia at Cardiff in June 2001.

Lee's previous fastest recorded delivery was measured at 97.5mph (156kph) against South Africa in a one-day international in Johannesburg in the 1999-2000 season.

A ball from Jeff Thomson in the nets was timed at 99mph (158.4kph) back in the 1970s, but the timing technology used was different.

Lee, 25, is playing in his 20th Test for Australia. Earlier in the opening session the New South Wales speedster claimed his 78th Test wicket when Gary Kirsten edged to Mark Waugh.

He's still to erratic for mine, particularly in One Dayers. Needs to work on control not pace. (Hey I'm a control freak too!)
