Modified 09 Jun 2014

Cricket is a mixture of art and skill,and sports are run on talents of individuals; however, sometimes it is the physical attributesof a player that engraves the path forsuccess. Height is an important attribute for a fast bowler.Of course, there are bowlers who are relatively short and have created their own niche, but taller bowlers do seem to have an edge over others.Here, let us havea look at the top 10 tallest cricketers of all time. Remember to drop your comments.

#1 Mohammad Irfan (PAK)

He is tall and undoubtedly fast. This lanky spearhead from Pakistan is the tallest in the game of cricket with a height of 7’1” (216cms). He made his ODI debut against England in 2010 after Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir were sacked due to spot-fixing. His debut was not that remarkable as he went for too many runs and had to leave the field because of cramps.

But, then, he came back against India in 2012. Since then his bowling has not gone unnoticed: he became known as a bowler who bowls consistently above 140kmph and in good channels. He made his Test debut against South Africa.
