The world's most lethal bowler - Mitchell JohnsonWRITTEN BY THE EDITOR ON AUGUST 20, 2018. POSTED IN SPORTS
Long away from Test cricket, Mitchell Johnson has now retired from all forms of the game. Though there were more impressive bowlers stats wise in the history of cricket, I don't think there were any as lethal as Johnson when he was in the mood. Some proof of this here.
Ryan McLaren was a more than handy cricketer who was a late bloomer on the international stage. But Mitchell Johnson pretty much broke his spirit in both the Test and ODI game with these two deliveries.
But it wasn't just McLaren that he floored from a South African perspective. In that same Test match Smith and Kallis also had to leave the field after a fiery bouncer from the Aussie.
If I was picking a best Test XI of all time, Johnson we be in it. Sure he had his times when he lost the plot. But on his day there was nobody better in the dark art of fast bowling.
