Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Sami has claimed that he once bowled two deliveries that were 162 and 164 kph respectively.

Had this been recorded, he would hold the record for the fastest balls bowled in international cricket.

Currently, iconic Pakistan seamer Shoaib Akhtar holds the record for the fastest delivery bowled in international cricket at 161.3 kph during his side’s match against England at the 2003 World Cup.

However, Sami noted that the speed of the two balls he bowled were not recorded since the pace gun was broken.

“I once bowled two deliveries that were both faster than 160 kph, at 162 and 164 respectively,” he told Paktv.tv as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.

“However, I was then told that it was the fault of the machine (speed gun) and that the balls could not be counted.”

The 41-year-old hasn’t played international cricket since March 2016, while his last domestic game came in April 2019.

  1. So if the pace gun was broken Geo does he know the speed of the delivery? I once bowled a delivery that was 165 kph. I’m the fastest bowler in cricket history.
