Pace sensation Umran Malik made his international cricket debut against Ireland yesterday, June 26. But what took the spotlight was another pacer’s bowling speed. It was Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s first ball of the inning, clocking in at 125 mph, making it the fastest bowling ball in cricket history. The record was previously held by Pakistan’s Shoaib Akhtar, whose record was 161.3 km/h.

But wait, did that really happen? Apparently there was a bug in the speed gun that caused it to display an incorrect speed not just once, but twice! Regardless, the quick fingers of the Twitterverse couldn’t wait to bring praise and comparisons to Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s magnificent performance.

Check out Twitterverse’s reactions to Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s deadly pace:

Hardik Pandya leads the duel T20I. When he won the toss, he chose to roll first. India’s bowling exploits destroyed Ireland’s innings. Bhuvneshwar Kumar sent back Irish skipper Andrew Balbirnie first with an outrageous inswinger, followed by Hardik Pandya who fired opener Paul Stirling. But Harry Tector livened up Ireland’s innings with his 33-run, 64-ball knockout with six limits and three sixes. Lorcan Tucker hit 18 carries with 16 balls. In the end, Ireland was able to score 108 runs. Match overs reduced to 12 overs due to rain.

India responded with Deepak Hooda’s 29-ball 47 and Hardik Pandya’s 24 runs with 12 balls. They chased the target in just 9.2 overs with seven wickets in hand.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar recorded the most wickets on power play in the history of the T20I format after sacking Balbirnie to complete the 34th power play wicket in T20I. He has surpassed former West Indian spinner Samuel Badree and New Zealand pacer Tim Southee, who each claimed 33 wickets.
