Who Are The Top 10 Fastest Bowlers In The History Of Cricket?

Who have been the fastest bowlers so far in the history of cricket by now? Of course, you are guessing it right. Shoaib Akhtar tops the lists. The Rawalpindi Express bowled the fastest delivery 161.3 km/h(100.2) while playing against English team in 2003 World Cup. English opener Knick Knight was the batsman who faced this delivery. Bret Lee stands as the second fastest bowler in the history. The Aussie paceman bowled 160.8 km/ (100.1 mph) against New Zealand at Napier in 2005.
Then comes Shaun Tait(Australia), Jeffery Thompson (Australia), Andy Roberts(West Indies), Fidel Edwards (West Indies), Mitchell Johnson (Australia), Mohammad Sami(Pakistan) , Shane Bond(New Zealand) and Dale Steyn(South Africa) respectively. It should be noted there is no Indian fast bowler on the list. India has been a better producer of great batsmen like Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli but the bowling department has been their week link.
