(Video) Jeff Thomson, an untamed beast who sent the speedometer soaring

Jeff Thomson was a pace menace. The Australian firebrand’s slingy action and domineering attitude made him a challenging proposition to deal with. He terrorised England with hostile spells of extreme fast bowling, picking 33 wickets in the series. Thomson’s shoulder gave him trouble, and he had to find a way around it. He was always capable of unleashing a rapid bouncer that would skid and kick nastily from only just short of a length. The speed merchant who kept batsmen on their heels turned 71 earlier this week.
