That is why the coming season will be pretty exciting because some of the best players will be seen in action. Every season, we see some bowlers bowling at great pace, just like the battle we saw in IPL 2022 between Umran Malik, Anrich Nortje, and Lockie Ferguson. But the record for the fastest delivery in the IPL belongs to Shaun Tait, who bowled a ball at a speed of 157.71 km/h during the IPL 2011 for the Rajasthan Royals. So here we will talk about three bowlers who can bend their backs to break this record. 

3. Umran Malik

The Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer Umran Malik is known for his lightning speed in the IPL, which even earned him his maiden call for India in white-ball formats. Umran loves to bowl fast at the stumps, which makes him a tricky bowler to face. He bowled a ball at a speed of 157 kph during the IPL 2022 against Rovman Powell from the Delhi Capitals.

2. Anrich Nortje

South African speedster Anrich Nortje will be back in the IPL 2024 and will be playing for the Delhi Capitals. He holds the record for the fourth-fastest ball in the IPL. Nortje bowled a ball at 156.22 in the IPL 2020 to Jos Buttler of the Rajasthan Royals. The South African pacer loves to bowl fast and clicks over 150 km/h regularly.

1. Lockie Ferguson

The Kiwi pacer, Lockie Ferguson, is one of the fastest bowlers in the world at the moment. He likes to hurry up the batter with quick bouncers and bowls over 150 km/h regularly. He bowled the second-fastest IPL delivery in the 2022 season. He bowled at a speed of 157.3 during a game against the Rajasthan Royals. He will look to do something similar in the coming season for his new team, the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
