What is Fast Bowling in Cricket

Fast bowling is a style of bowling in the sport of cricket where the primary emphasis is on bowling the ball at high speeds, typically in excess of 90 miles per hour (145 kilometers per hour) in the case of professional fast bowlers. Fast bowlers use their physical strength, natural athleticism, and a combination of various techniques to generate maximum speed and bounce from the pitch, making it challenging for the batsmen to play their shots comfortably.
