Chris Tremlett: At 6’7”, current England seamer Chris Tremlett is a giant amongst men, even among his country’s current crop of fast bowlers.
With just 11 Tests and 15 ODIs under his belt, the Surrey paceman will want to impress on the bouncy pitches of Australia during the upcoming Ashes series.
Abey Kuruvilla: Generally regarded as the tallest man to play for India, Abey Kuruvilla stands at an imposing 6’6” and had the potential to be a very handy fast bowler.
However, after just 10 Tests, he was jettisoned as he did not quite have enough for the international stage.
Cameron Cuffy: Another seam bowler who was perhaps found wanting at international level, 6’8” Cameron Cuffy played 15 Tests for the West Indies in the 1990s and early 2000s as they searched for a replacement for Curtly Ambrose.
However, he could not hold down a regular place and was dropped in 2002 when it was clear his best days were behind him.
Sulieman Benn: Standing at 6’7”, you might expect West Indian Sulieman Benn to be a fast bowler.
However, he is, in fact, a left-arm spinner who can extract considerable bounce, especially on dry pitches.
Benn does have the temperament of a fast bowler, though, as his numerous brushes with authority throughout his career show.
