Former England and Lancashire's opening batsman, Michael Atherton discloses the names of top 3 fastest bowlers he ever played. Shoaib Akhtar "the Rawalpindi express", Brett Lee, Australian star fast bowler, and Allan Donald, South African fast bowler, are the ones who are at the top of his list.
Mike Atherton said during the commentary between Pakistan vs Bangladesh game that these were the 3 fastest bowlers of my generation which I played.
Shoaib Akhtar, Brett Lee, and Allan Donald were surely the freaks with the ball. They intimidated the batsmen with their brute pace and then used their fears against them to get them out.
