Mayank Yadav's 155.8 Kmph Ripper Faster Than Umran Malik's Record? Check Full IPL List | Cricket News

Mayank Yadav announced his arrival in the IPL 2024 with a sensational display of pace bowling, with the youngster delivering the fastest ball in this year’s competition. During the match against Punjab Kings on Saturday, the debutant looked in superb form and his blistering speed of 155.8 kmph left Shikhar Dhawan in trouble. Mayank eventually picked up three crucial wickets as Lucknow Super Giants registered their first win of IPL 2024. Although the young fast bowler shattered this year’s records, his performance was not enough to earn him the distinction of being the fastest bowler ever in IPL. The performance of 155.8 was the sixth fastest in IPL history, with Australian Shaun Tait topping the list.

When it comes to Indian pacers, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Umran Malik stands out with a speed of 157 kmph that he produced in the 2022 season. The other bowlers above Mayank Yadav in the IPL list are Lockie Ferguson and Anrich Nortje.

Fastest deliveries in IPL history:

Shaun Tait 157.71 km/h – 2011

Lockie Ferguson 97.3mph – 2022

Umran Malik 157 km/h – 2022

Anrich Nortje 156.22 km/h – 2020

Umran Malik 156 km/h – 2022

Mayank Yadav 155.8 km/h – 2024

Lucknow Super Giants bowling coach Morne Morkel said young Mayank Yadav generated some serious and worrying pace, which was a pleasant sight for the side aiming to go the distance.

The 21-year-old Mayank bowled at a very good pace, with most of his deliveries going above 150 as he dismissed dangerous opener Jonny Bairstow, Prabhsimran Singh and Jitesh Sharma at a time when it looked like Punjab Kings would be runaway winners. here.

Chasing 200 for victory, PBKS’s innings faltered despite Shikhar Dhawan (70) and Bairstow (42) building a century-long partnership thanks to the right-arm pacer’s willingness to give it his all.

Mayank, playing his maiden IPL game, returned miserly figures of 3/27 in his four overs, which broke the PBKS’ chase.

“Young Mayank bowled some serious heat and got the wickets. Last year it was difficult when he got injured after the first warm-up match. We can manage him better. He ran in and that was the pleasing thing,” said Morkel, a former South -African pace bowler.

“We asked the boys to do the basics well on a good wicket. We told him to stick to his height and use bouncers. He proudly ran in and bowled gas despite the humidity. How the wicket would play was unknown, we had to create and use addition conditions.”
