What really impressed me was his speed and the willingness to execute the yorker. Im Sure he can it the high 140s in no time.

I dont think he'll be a consistant 87mph kind of bowler, but he showed in these games that he has the ability to hit those speeds. Really pleased for the bloke. Just goes to show that, when playing the right team and when the cameras are on you, you're never far away from a T20 franchise contract

express pace is lowkey overrated, you dont see guys like boult or Cummins bowling that much over 145

Sure, but you could say starc and archers secret weapon are their pace.you still need to be able to control the pace. If being highly critical, an example is shaun Tait who didn't always have the control. With high pace also comes strain on body and injuries which need to be handled carefully.

One of the hardest things for a batter is a real fast bowler and then a spinner or a highly accurate pacer at the other end. Wickets can often come at the other end.

Real fast bowler also can blow away tail. Zimbabwe don't have an out and out quick.

Have a fast bowler is like having a specialist number 3 bat. It adds depth to your side

Zimbabwe Cricket have lost 2 basic talent producing factory. One is those pace bowling allrounders which they used to have in bunches in 90s and fast bowlers like Olonga,
Watambwa who had good pace

Good for him, its great seeing our criminally-underpaid stars getting lucrative global T20 opportunities. Did anyone else from Zim get a contract or at least throw their hats in the ring?

I think that point was valid during the pre-2010. When the ICC started allowing bigger bats (high surface area)..as well as expanding fielding restrictions, smaller boundaries, powerplays, free-hits etc, military medium pace is an invitation to get smacked, even "bowling machines" like Shaun Pollock, McGrath would struggle to maintain "respectable" stats. I think seamers need to bowl in the upper 130s with the occasional slower ball, to be competitive these days
