We’d say they gave readings about 3mph more than other cricket speed guns. That’s based on years of watching Andrew Flintoff and James Anderson and pretty much knowing their bowling speeds by now.
How should we react to this? We should all try and make the effort to be 3mph less impressed by the fast bowlers and 3mph less impressed by the batsmen facing them.
Cricketing worth is measured partly in mph and partly by how many people leave the bar when a player’s about to bat or bowl. This means Andrew Flintoff is a better player than Peter Such was.
