Sri Lankan young Cricket sensation Matheesha Pathirana is not the fastest bowler !

Sri Lanka went down by 90 runs vs India in their U-19 World Cup opener on Sunday.Matheesha Pathirana bowled a 175kph ball in the 4th over of the Indian innings.However, it turned out that there was a technical glitch in recording and it was not a 175kph ball delivery.

In the 4th over of the Indian innings, fast bowler Matheesha Pathirana bowled a wide delivery to Yashasvi Jaiswal, which was recorded at 175kph (108mph), making it the fastest recorded ball ever bowled in international cricket – across all levels.

Even though the umpire signaled a wide, the speed-gun recorded the astronomical pace of the delivery as it zoomed past Jaiswal and into the wicketkeeper’s gloves. Before this, the fastest ever recorded delivery in international cricket was bowled by former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar when he let one rip at 161.3kph (100mph) in an ODI in 2003.
