The Kolkata Knight Riders are playing against defending champions Gujarat Titans in match no 13 of Tata IPL. Gujarat are playing without their skipper Hardik Pandya who is unwell and replaced by V Shankar. Rashid Khan is leading the side in Hardik’s absence.

On the other hand, KKR despite winning their last encounter against RCB, have made two changes to their eleven. N Jagadeesan has replaced Mandeep Singh, whereas, Lockie Ferguson has replaced Tim Southee. Ferguson made his impact in the very first over by bowling as many as 3 deliveries clocking over 150 Kph. His ferocious speed was surely a treat for the viewers.

Fastest ball in IPL: Lockie Ferguson clocks 154.1 Kph

Ferguson bowled a full ball at 154.1 kph outside off which was carved by Shubman Gill past backward point for a single. Ferguson made a return to KKR colors after two years, but it seems like he is upbeat to play for the Knight Riders and wants to make a mark against his previous team. So far, Lockie has bowled only a solitary over and will be gunning for more in the rest of his overs.

Who is India’s current fastest bowler?

Umran Malik, a fast bowler from Jammu playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad, has set records with his speed. He bowled the fastest ball ever by an Indian in IPL, clocking at 157 Kmph against Delhi Capitals on May 5, 2022. Malik is one of the few Indian pacers who consistently bowls over 145 Kmph. In addition to IPL, he has impressed in the Indian cricket team as well. He broke the record for the fastest delivery by an Indian in T20I cricket with 155 Kmph against Sri Lanka in January 2023. In the same series, he bowled at 156 Kmph in an ODI match, setting the record for the fastest Indian bowler in ODI cricket too.
