Sunrisers Hyderabad Umran Malik has delivered the fastest ball of IPL 2022, clocking 157 kmph against Delhi Capitals, on Thursday at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.

Malik though went wicketless and conceded 52 runs in his 4 overs.


Bowling to Rovman Powell of DC, it was the fourth ball of the 20th over where Umran clocked 157 kmph.

The SRH speed pacer had earlier clocked 154 kmph against Chennai Super Kings and 153 kmph against Gujarat Titans.

This time yet again, Umran earned loads of praises on social media for his fast bowling.


Umran, who has been enthralling cricket fans with his searing pace in the cash-rich league is learning the tricks from Dale Steyn, ex-South Africa great, who is currently serving as Hyderabad's pace bowling coach.

"It's great to see someone run in and bowl 150kmph an hour. Very often we try and create guys to make them more aware like change your pace, do this and that. But I think Umran is out and out raw. It's great to just let him loose and do what he does, which is great because you don't want to change people and block him off too much," an elated Steyn said about Malik.

"To watch him bowl at 150 clicks an hour consistently is super exciting, not just for me but for everyone watching the game at home or in the stadium. It's not great to face but it's super exciting," he added.

Earlier, the young cricketer had bagged his maiden IPL five-for in the match against Gujarat Titans at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Malik's spell of 4-0-25-5 - the best of IPL 2022 so far - rattled Gujarat's top and middle-order in the 196-run chase.

In his 10 IPL games so far this season, the SRH speedster has picked 15 wickets.
