SRH pacer Umran Malik has set the record for the fastest delivery in IPL 2021.
The 21-year-old, who had earlier bowled the fastest delivery by an Indian pacer in IPL 2021, clocked 152.95 kmph against RCB on Wednesday to achieve the feat. KKR’s Lockie Ferguson had held the season’s previous record (152.75 kmph).
Umran Malik’s father said his son playing in IPL is not an ordinary achievement for them. “We’re from a poor family. I sell vegetables and fruits…My son has made me proud,” he added. Umran made his IPL debut in the second leg and has clocked 152.95 kmph to break Lockie Ferguson’s season record of 152.75 kmph.
