Jeff Thomson of Australia was the fastest bowler so far in international cricket. His pace crossed 100 miles per hour in the Perth Test played in 1975-76 between Australia and West Indies. But in that test, the West Indies batsmen Roy Fredericks and Clive Lloyd were not scared by his pace and hit him for many runs. Fredericks scored 169 runs and Lloyd a double century. West Indies scored more than 500 runs and declared their innings. West Indies won that match by an innings.
