Umran Malik Broke The Record Of Jasprit Bumrah, Eyes On Shoaib Akhtar’s Record

India’s Young fast bowler Umran Malik once again showed his speedy delivery on the 22-yard pitch and troubled the opposition batter. He bowled at a speed of 155kmph in the first T20I match of the series against Sri Lanka, to which Sri Lankan Captain Dasun Sanaka didn’t have an answer. He was shocked by this pacey delivery of Umran.

The Sri Lankan skipper played this ball on the offside, which Yuzvendra Chahal easily caught. This ball was the fastest ball in the match. This incident happened on the fourth ball of the 17th over of the Sri Lankan innings. Sanaka got out after scoring 45 runs off 27 balls; this moment became the match’s turning point.

Before the series against Sri Lanka, Umran said he should break Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar’s record of throwing the fastest ball in the cricket world. Looking at the historical record, Umran has taken a decisive step to break it.

After this Indian team took decisive steps towards victory against the host, the video of this fastball of Umran Malik is also becoming quite viral on social media platforms. While bowling 4 overs in this match, Umran gave 27 runs and got 2 important wickets.

After seeing this, it seems that Umran can break Shoaib Akhtar’s record soon. During the 2003 World Cup, Shoaib Akhtar bowled a ball at 161.3 kmph to Nick Knight in the match against England. This is the world record for the fastest delivery till now.

Batting first after losing the toss in the first match against Sri Lanka, the Indian team scored 162 runs for 5 wickets. Deepak Hooda and Axar Patel had a partnership of 68 runs on 35 balls, eventually leading the Indian team to a better score. In response, the Sri Lankan team scored 160 runs and lost the match by 2 runs. Deepak Hooda, who scored an inning of 41 runs, was declared Player of the Match.
