There has been debate over India not being able to produce fast bowlers who have raw pace to haunt the batsmen. But, India have not been the hub of fast bowlers like their arch-rival Pakistan. Even if there are bowlers who can generate raw pace, they have not been able to maintain their pace due to fitness issues. But, it seems like they have finally got a player who can bowl above 150 kmph with a run up as if he is taking a stroll in a park. The fastest ball recorded by an Indian fast bowler is 154.5 kmph bowled by Javagal Srinath.
Well, Australian pacer Shaun Tait has got the citizenship of India as he posted the photo of the document on his Twitter account. But, it will be at least three more years before he gets eligible to play for India. Although there are very less chances that he gets a berth in Indian side keeping in mind that he is 34-year-old already which means that he will be 37-year-old by the time he gets eligible to play for India.
Tait is one of the fastest bowlers World Cricket has ever witnessed. He has bowled the second fastest delivery of ODIs, he is on the joint second position alongside his teammate Brett Lee clocking at a lightening 161.1 kmph.

Well, the reason he has taken the citizenship of India is her wife Mashoom Singha who is from Mumbai. Tait tied the not with her on June 12, 2014. He met her in 2010 during one of the post-match Indian Premier League (IPL) parties when he was playing for Rajasthan Royals.
There is also a flipside to this as he would not be an overseas player anymore after taking the citizenship of India and will be the first choice of IPL franchises as they are allowed only 4 overseas players in the team. With Tait’s fast bowling, any team can use him as a strike bowler who would be a threat to most domestic batsmen.
