No country can consistently produce fast bowlers.
It’s clearly desirable and clearly possible: the West Indies proved this in the 1980s. With all the science and coaching effort being put into understanding cricket, why do we understand bowling so poorly?
We are not training our bowlers correctly. We have not learnt enough from older, wiser sports, and this is evident in our variable results.
In fact, bowling over 161kph should not be a particularly exceptional achievement.
