Breaking the 100 miles for each hour (160.934 kilometers every hour) hindrance has been a fantasy for quick bowlers around the globe. Previous Pakistan bowler Shoaib Akhtar accomplished the accomplishment by bowling a 161.3 mph conveyance to New Zealand’s Craig McMillan in an ODI at Lahore on April 27, 2002.
Be that as it may, the International Cricket Council (ICC) would not acknowledge it as a world record as one of the backers gave the speed weapon used to the match.
Following the contention, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had discharged an announcement perusing: “As per the speed weapon worked in the ground by a support, Shoaib Akhtar bowled a conveyance at a speed off 161 kph during the third ODI among Pakistan and New Zealand at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.”
Akhtar’s thunderclap of a conveyance didn’t enter the history books. Be that as it may, the Rawalpindi Express didn’t take too long to even think about doing it once more. The speedster timed at 100.24 mph (161.3 mph) against England in a World Cup Group A match at Newlands Stadium, Cape Town, South Africa, February 22, 2003.
