Fastest Ball in IPL: Umran Malik clocks 150 kmph

In the ongoing match against Rajasthan Royals, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s speedster Umran Malik has once again caught the eyeballs. After being retained ahead of the mega auction, Umran has now set the internet on fire after clocking 150 kmph speed in his very first over of the match. Last year, while playing in his debut Indian Premier League season, the Jammu & Kashmir fast bowler consistently bowled over 150 kmph which also forced SRH to retain him as their third player ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction.

Umran Malik has the record of bowling the fastest ball by an Indian bowler in the history of the Indian Premier League. During IPL 2021 season, Umran clocked bowling speeds of  152.95 and 152.05 kmph.
