Jeff Thomson also known as ‘Thommo’ was born in August 1950 in Greenacre, Sydney and is the fastest bowler of all time.
He debuted his career for Australia against Pakistan in 1972 at the age of just 22. He soon became renowned as one of the fastest bowlers ever to play cricket. In 1975 he was timed using high-speed cameras achieving 160.58km/hr. Several cricketers of Thomson’s era claimed that he in fact bowled at speeds over 180km/hr.
Batters all over the world feared his extremely fast pace in a day when protective gear in the sport had not yet been established.
Thommo ended his professional career in the year of 1985 in a last test match against England.
In January 2016 Jeff Thomson became one of just 43 players in the history of Australian cricket to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
