Speed Gun Clocks Sri Lanka Pacer Bowling ‘Fastest Ball Ever’

Sri Lanka Under-19 pacer Matheesha Pathirana, whose slingy bowling action grabbed eyeballs for its similarity with that of Lasith Malinga, bowled a short delivery to India Under-19 star Yashasvi Jaiswal, after which the speed gun showed a reading of 175 kph.

The incident happened as the two teams took each other on in their opening match in the ongoing ICC Under-19 World Cup in South Africa. If the reading is correct, it would make it the fastest recorded delivery in the history of cricket by a huge margin, although in all probability there was an error in the speed displayed after the delivery.
