Fastest Deliveries in IPL: Over the years, the Indian Premier League (IPL) has unearthed several domestic talents, who have kept everyone on their toes with their raw pace. One such pacer who recently came to light was Mayank Yadav. The Delhi-based pacer rattled the entire opposition with his startling pace, last night at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.

Mayank Yadav, playing for Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in match number 11 of the IPL 2024, hurled thunderbolts at the Punjab Kings (PBKS) batter and was successful in troubling them big time. The pacer managed to clock 155.8 KMPH in his debut game, which saw him make an immediate impact for his side.

The 21-year-old pacer managed to bag three wickets as well, besides hurling a barrage of thunderbolts against Punjab Kings (PBKS). He got rid of Jonny Bairstow, Prabhsimran Singh and Jitesh Sharma during the game.

Interestingly, this is not the first time a pacer has suddenly burst into the scene with his scathing deliveries. Earlier, Umran Malik drew everyone’s attention with his pace when he stunned RCB with five consecutive deliveries which clocked over 150 KMPH.

However, he recorded his best figures as far as the pace was concerned back in IPL 2022 when he delivered 157 KMPH delivery, which largely cemented his position as a key prospect for the Indian team in the coming years.

There are many such examples in the international arena as well. This article will lead you through players with the 10 fastest deliveries in IPL history.
