Bowling on the Indian pitches is not something that the fast-bowlers enjoy. The slow tracks in India hardly offer anything to the pacers and are more spin-friendly. However, some bowlers do manage to make a mark even in India with their extreme pace and we have witnessed some similar performances in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). So through this piece, we are taking a look at the five of the fastest deliveries in the season so far.

 
5. Navdeep Saini (149.8 kmph):

This pace sensation from Haryana was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore after seeing his heroics with the ball in the domestic circuit. Saini has sheer pace and has the ability to rattle any batting line-up on his day. Saini was first scouted by Gautam Gambhir from Karnal Premier League and helped him to make a mark in the red ball game. Though his inclusion created a tussle between Gambhir and DDCA, he didn’t disappoint in the next season and picked up 34 wickets in 8 matches. Saini has already clocked around 150kmph speed and is likely to break the barriers again in coming days.
4. Jofra Archer (150.6 kmph):

Jofra Archer has already made fame in global T20 leagues and has impressed with his all-around ability. He was raised in Barbados but is now gearing up to play cricket for England as he holds a British Passport. Archer was first seen rampaging in the Big Bash League where he ruled the 22 yards with his pace and accuracy. He touched the 150kmph mark in this year’s IPL and also picked up 3 wickets.
  
3. Jasprit Bumrah(150.6kmph):

Regarded as the best bowler of the current time, Bumrah is known for his speed, accuracy and toe-crushing yorkers. Bumrah impressed once again with his death bowling when he restricted the RCB batsmen to score 22runs in the final two overs by giving just 6 runs in his second spell of two overs against the likes of AB de Villiers. He also clocked 150kmph mark and got the prized wicket of Virat Kohli with a quick bouncer.
 
2. Kagiso Rabada(150.9 kmph):

This bowling sensation from South Africa proved his mettle against KKR in a super-over which had Andre Russell on the other side. Rabada’s heroics restricted the KKR to score just 7 runs in the super-over and gave Delhi Capitals the vital two points.  Rabada has raw pace and can beat any batsman with his line and length. He also surpassed the 150kmph barrier during the first week of the IPL.
 
1. Lockie Ferguson (151.6kmph):

Probably, the fastest bowler in the world right now, Lockie Ferguson has impressed many with his pace and bounce in the international level. He was bought by the KKR franchise to replace Mitchell Starc. Lockie is tall, have high arm action and can generate tremendous pace even on dead pitches. He has picked up just 2 wickets in this IPL but caused many problems with his pace and bounce. He could be handy in the Eden Gardens pitch which suits his bowling.
