    Fastest Delivery by Indian Bowler: India’s fastest bowler Umran Malik has once again clocked more than 150 Kph in the third and final ODI against New Zealand at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. While bowling only his 10th ball of the match, Umran clocked close to 152 Kmph (151.7 Kmph) against Devon Conway. It was the fourth ball of the 10th over which resulted in a dot. Conway tried to swing the bat but couldn’t connect and the ball went straight into the gloves of Ishan Kishan. 

    Fastest Delivery by Indian bowler

    Indian fast bowler Umran Malik is known for his ability to bowl at high speeds and has already bowled the fastest delivery by an Indian bowler. His fastest delivery clocked 156 Kph against Sri Lanka in the first ODI of Sri Lanka’s tour of India on January 11, 2023, at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Assam.

    Not only the fastest, but the second fastest ball bowled by an Indian bowler in Indian cricket is named against Umran Malik. He has clocked 155 Kph before and surely is on the course of becoming the fastest bowler in the world.

    Who is the fastest bowler in the world?

    The title of the fastest bowler in the world is often debated among cricket fans and experts. As of now, the record for the fastest ball ever recorded in international cricket is held by Pakistan veteran fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar, who clocked in at 161.3 Kmph (100.23 mph) during a match against England in 2003. This officially makes it the fastest ball ever recorded in international cricket. The second fastest ball in international cricket is bowled by Australia’s Shaun Tait in 2010. He clocked 161.1 Kmph in 2010 vs England. Take a look at the 5 fastest balls bowled in international cricket.

    Bowler Country Fastest delivery Year and Opposition
    Shoaib Akhtar Pakistan 161.3 km/hr (100.2 mph) 2003 vs England
    Shaun Tait Australia 161.1 km/hr (100.1 mph) 2010 vs England
    Brett Lee Australia 160.8 km/hr (99.9 mph) 2005 vs New Zealand
    Jeffrey Thomson Australia 160.6 km/hr (99.8 mph) 1975 vs West Indies
    Mitchell Starc Australia 160.4 km/hr (99.7 mph) 2015 vs New Zealand

    Out of the 5 mentioned name on the table, only Mitchell Starc is playing cricket. This gives India’s lethal pacer Umran Malik a chance to feature his name on the top of this elusive list with age and fitness both by his side.
