Over the last few years, the Indian Premier League has witnessed some tremendous fast bowling in the tournament. Umran Malik is one of the upcoming pace bowlers for team India as he bowled the fastest ball of this season thumping Lockie Ferguson by clocking 154 KPH on the speed gun against Chennai Super Kings. It was a full ball on the stumps which was driven down the ground for a boundary by CSK opener Ruturaj Gaikwad. Malik clocked 154 KPH again in the 19th over, a yorker to MS Dhoni which was dug out for a single. Malik finished with figures of 4-0-48-0.
Chennai Super Kings are going through an extremely unfortunate season as they have managed only two wins from eight matches such a long way in the competition. In any case, they have begun well against Sunrisers Hyderabad with a brilliant opening partnership. SRH won the toss and decided to bowl first. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway gave the team a brilliant beginning and were solid on the crease.
Umran Malik was bowling the tenth over of the innings and he bowled a full delivery timing 154 KPH on the second chunk of the over. With such pace, Umran channeled Lockie Ferguson for the fastest ball of the time and by and by showed the lethal pace with which he can bowl. The Sunrisers Hyderabad blower, Malik, grabbed his maiden IPL five-wicket haul in the match against Gujarat Titans at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday.
