Watch: There is a lot of confusion regarding Umran Malik’s fastest ball by an Indian because the broadcasts in Hindi and English show different speeds

Umran Malik broke his own record for the fastest ball bowled by an Indian bowler by bowling it at 156 kilometers per hour.

But he might not get credit for it because the official Hindi and English broadcasts showed different results on the speed gun for the same delivery, which caused a lot of confusion.

Not only has Umran Malik impressed with his speed, but he has also taken wickets. Umran had figures of 3 for 57 in eight overs in the first one-day international (ODI) match between India and Sri Lanka at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati.

India won the match by 67 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the three-game series. However, his thunderbolt delivery of 156 kilometers per hour, with which he broke his own record for the fastest delivery by an Indian bowler, was what made him a social media sensation on Tuesday night.

But he might not get credit for it because the official Hindi and English broadcasts showed different results on the speed gun for the same delivery, which caused a lot of confusion.

Umran was brought in right after the powerplay. Hit that record ball in the fourth delivery of his second over, which was Sri Lanka’s 14th over of the chase.

The Hindi broadcast did not show anything about the speed gun. Which was visible at the bottom of the screen when Umran bowled the fourth ball of the over.

However, a few seconds later, it showed the speeds of each delivery in that over. Indicating that the fourth ball was traveling at 156 kilometers per hour.

Charith Asalanka, a batter for Sri Lanka, hit it through the covers for two singles, making it longer and wider.

However, the same delivery was recorded at 145.7 kph in the English broadcast. This caused a great deal of confusion and cast doubt on Umran’s actual delivery speed.

Umran now holds the record for the fastest delivery by an Indian in T20Is, ODIs, and the IPL it was 156 kilometers per hour.

Six nights ago against Sri Lanka, he recorded his fastest T20I delivery of 155 km. However, in a match against Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League, his fastest delivery was 157 kilometers per hour.

By throwing out Asalanka in the final ball, he ended that over. The batter tried to look away from it, but he ended up feathering it as wicketkeeper KL Rahul completed the dismissal.

It was short and hit the leg-stump line. However, UltraEdge later demonstrated that there was no bat involved, so Umran was fortunate to be dismissed.

In addition, he gave up Wellalage for a duck and Pathum Nissanka for 72 in the same over. After playing six games, all I want to do is bowl well and in the right places.

I spoke with Siraj bhai and Shami bhai, and they advised me to make the most of my pace. The wicket was flat. After India’s victory, he stated, “I want to be as accurate as I possibly can.”
