A game of cricket can’t be a complete entertainment package unless some fast bowling is involved in it. World of cricket has seen a lot of great fast bowlers who surprised fans with their sheer pace and skills to swing cricket ball. However, fast-paced cricket seems to have shortened the career of most fast bowlers but still there are few brilliant fast bowlers in 2015.
In modern era of cricket, Mitchell Johnson is one of the most aggressive fast bowler and leader of Australian pace attack. With a brilliant left-arm bowling action, Johnson has the capacity to consistently bowl lethal deliveries and create trouble for opposition.

With an unorthodox bowling action and personality, Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga is one of the most feared fast bowlers of present age.

Roch is undoubtedly one the best fast bowlers at present and has the ability to disturb opposition’s batting lineup with his bowling performance.
