Some Of The Tallest Players To Grace The Cricket Pitch

Robert Pershing Wadlow holds the title as the tallest man who ever lived.

Wadlow reached 8 ft 11.1’’ (2.72 m) in height and weighed 439 lb. (199 kg) at his death at age 22. However, Wadlow was no cricketer.

The player with the record of being the tallest to play the cricket game belongs to Pakistan’s 38-year-old left-arm fast bowler Mohammed Irfan.

He has represented Pakistan in Test, ODI, and T20 cricket.

Some pundits would argue that he made his first-class debut relatively late – 27 years old.

Standing at 7’ 1” (2.16 m), Irfan is a gentle giant with a consistent bowling speed of over 140 km/h after coming into his own.
