In the match between Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals on 14 October (Wednesday), Delhi team defeated Rajasthan by 13 runs in a thrilling match.
Delhi won this match on the strength of their fast bowlers and in yesterday’s match, Delhi fast bowler Enrique Norkhia made the most headlines in the match with his fast bowling.
During this time, Norkhia threw a ball at a dangerous speed of 156.2 kmph and after this many people took to social media to say that this is the fastest ball thrown in IPL history till date.
But please tell that this ball thrown by Norkhia is not the fastest ball. The record of throwing the fastest ball in the history of IPL is named after the dangerous Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait, who played for Rajasthan.
In 2011, Tait bowled a ball against the Delhi Daredevils (Delhi Capitals) in front of then Australian explosive batsman Aaron Finch, who played for Delhi at a speed of 157.7 kmph.
Yesterday, Norkhia was determined to bowl a very fast ball from his first over. In his first over, he bowled a ball at a speed of 156.2 km / h which was hit by a brilliant four by Rajasthan batsman Jose Butler. But on the next ball, he bowled a ball at a speed of 155.1 km / h and bowled cleanly to Butler.
