Shoaib Akhtar and Umran Malik
Akhtar responded to Umran Malik's remarks

India speedster Umran Malik hogged headlines after the 1st T20I against Sri Lanka, as the 23-year-old clocked 155 kph on the speedometer and bowled the fastest ball by an Indian in international cricket.

Umran, known for his ferocious speed, often gets dragged into conversations about breaking Shoaib Akhtar’s record of 161.3 kph, the fastest ball ever bowled in cricket.

After the 1st game against Sri Lanka, where Umran picked up two wickets, he talked about breaking Akhtar’s record and said that he does not consciously think about it, but something that he would look to break.

“I think to perform well for my country. I will be happy if I break that, but I don’t think about that,” stated Akhtar.

Malik’s remarks spread like fire on the internet, and the man himself, Shoaib Akhtar, has responded to Malik’s statement.

Akhtar laughingly responded that Umran Malik should not break his bones while trying to break his record.

“I would be happy if he breaks my record. Although, hoping that he does not break his bones trying to achieve that. I mean, I advise him to stay fit.”

Akhtar bowled the fastest ball in cricket against England in the 2003 World Cup.
