Umran Malik was wayward again and went for plenty of runs against the Delhi Capitals. Still, he managed to bowl the second fastest delivery in the history of the Indian Premier League. The 22-year-old delivered a 157 kmph ball to Rovman Powell, which was hit for a four.
Malik’s delivery was the fastest of IPL 2022 as he continues to add more pace. He surpassed Anrich Nortje, who bowled 156.22 kmph ball for Delhi Capitals. The record is still with Shaun Tait having touched the speed of 157.71 Kmph.

However, this is also under threat seeing the effort of the young Indian fast bowler. After taking five wickets against Gujarat Titans, Malik has been hammered by Ruturaj Gaikwad, David Warner and Rovman Powell.
