Morne Morkel bowls a 173.9 kph speedster

Pin It

Morne Morkel, who represents Delhi Daredevils, bowled a fairly quick delivery to Bangalore’s Chris Gayle in their encounter in Bangalore.

Believe it or not, the speed gun reading showed 173.9 kph and that is 12.6 kph faster than the 161.3 kph that Pakistani thunderbolt Shoaib Akhtar bowled in Cape Town in the 2003 World Cup.

Is that really so or was that just a technical fault in the speed gun??

The fellow South African, Dale Steyn also wondered on the reading.
