Umran Malik, an Indian bowler with exceptional pace, beat his own previous mark by delivering the quickest delivery ever. Malik broke his own record of 155 kph that he had set during the first T20I against Sri Lanka last week on January 4 by bowling a blistering 156 kph delivery during the first ODI against Sri Lanka on Tuesday, January 10.
When Malik recorded a delivery speed of 155 kph during the T20I match, he broke Indian pacesetter Jasprit Bumrah's previous mark of 153.36 kph. Malik demonstrated his promise while causing issues for the Sri Lankan bowlers with his pace in the first ODI as the visitors struggled to score off his deliveries. The 23-year-old pacer from Srinagar has surpassed Muhammad Shami and Bumrah to become India's quickest bowler.
In the match, Malik recorded his best ODI numbers of his career, 3/57, taking three significant wickets in his eight overs of bowling. Malik has taken 10 wickets in six ODI matches, and he has managed to keep his economy rate at 6.21. He helped India win the opening game, giving the Men in Blue the series lead by 1-0.
