No arguement with one who didn't watched Chatara during 2015-16 before he was injured.

Chatara regularly hit 140 in the WC in Oz, and then he broke his leg and hasn't hit 130 since. In the domestic matches that where streamed I reckon he bowled around 120 kph max.
Again, no he didn't. It's a myth. He bowled in the mid 130's against Pakistan but never clicked 140. I watched the game and remember specifically watching Chatara's speeds
:o :o :o
You, of all the people not remembering someone's bowling speeds correctly? Chatara was regularly 140+ through most part of the 2015 CWC from what I remember.

Yup, that makes it around 142 on average fastest delivery across those matches.

Where I agree with Sloan is that Chatara didn't bowl 140 in the Test match against Pakistan. In the few Tests he played under a speed gun I only remember one or two quicker deliveries touching 140 in the West Indies.

Watching him in 2015 I think we were all a nicely suprised by the speeds recorded, but apart from conditions more suited to fast bowling than the slowish pitches Chatara has toiled on for the best part of his career, he was also looking raring fit at that tournament.

I don't think I had seen Chatara bowl more quickly since his debut as a 19/20 year-old where he really let it fly and bowled 140 kph against India, I think.

Yes, remember that series, his usage of the left hand was pretty much zero in the delivery stride and it was shocking (it has become better over the years but still strange), but still was puzzling for many Indian commentators as to how he is generating so much pace with such an awkward action.

Chatara success was 55% for his typical bowling action and 45% for his pace. Bowling Outswingers to right handers with left arm freezed was a natural talent of him that created problem in detection for the batters.

Looks like Burl has been dropped for that tweet. Seriously i can't waste my time on this, I feel for the players, but ZC is just disgusting.
