Not only this, Umran has also become the second Indian fast bowler after former cricketer Javagal Srinath, who has bowled at a speed of 157 km. However, Umran could not break this record and has only been able to equal it. Srinath bowled 157 km for India in the 1996-97 tour of South Africa.
However, in the match against Delhi, Umran did not get a single wicket. Apart from this, he also proved to be the most expensive bowler. Umran spent 52 runs in his four over spell in the match, while he could not get a single wicket. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sean Abbott and Shreyas Gopal earned a breakthrough each for Sunrisers.
