India’s young fast bowler Umran Malik on Tuesday broke his own record for bowling the fastest ball in international cricket for India. The 23-year-old bowler achieved this feat in the first ODI against Sri Lanka. With this, he also became the fastest bowler for India in T20I and One Day International cricket.
Umran Malik bowled 156 kmph in the ODI against Sri Lanka at Guwahati and topped the list of fastest international deliveries in the history of Indian cricket. Earlier, Umran Malik broke Jasprit Bumrah’s record by bowling at a speed of 155 kmph in the first T20I against Sri Lanka.
Jasprit Bumrah had bowled the ball in international cricket at a speed of 153.6 km per hour, but now Umran has broken this record many times. The 14th over in the first ODI saw the pace of Umran Malik, with the second and third balls of the over clocking 151kmph, while the fourth ball clocked 156kmph in the speed gun.
