    Fastest delivery by Indian bowler: Pace and Indian crircket wasn’t synonymous in the past as India was always known to produce some quality spinners. The likes of Anil Kumble, Bishan Singh Bedi, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, etc. have been the lynchpin of India’s bowling unit over the years.

    However, now India is going shoulder to shoulder with cricketing nations like Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, and England who are known to manufacture some great pacers. Today, India is producing pacers who can consistently bowl above 140 Kph, which was a hard pill to swallow in the past. In this post, we have listed the names of Indian pacers who have bowled the 5 fastest balls in Indian cricket history. So, without any further ado, let’s take a look.

    The first name on the list is none other than Umran Malik. India’s latest pace sensation is also India’s fastest bowler today. Umran bowled a fiery 155 Kph delivery in the first T20I against Sri Lanka on 3rd January 2023 to dismiss the Lankan skipper Dasun Shanaka. In an attempt to hit over covers, Dasun found Yuzvendra Chahal on the way and was easily caught on the circle. Umran’s 155 kph is the fastest ever ball bowled by an Indian in International cricket.

    2. Javagal Srinath- 154.5 Kph
