Umran Malik’s 151 KMPH Delivery
Umran Malik’s 151 KMPH delivery uprooted the off stump and left the batsman(Najmul Hossain Shanto) clueless who scored 21 runs off 35 balls.
The incident took place during the 14th over of the first inning where Umran Malik bowled his second over of the inning. Shanto who stands at the strikers’ end seems to get a single off Umran’s delivery but failed to do so.
This is India’s new Speed King Umran Malik. At a speed of 151 kmph, Bangladeshi batsman Shanto did not even realize when the wicket flew in the air. Congratulations @umran_malik_01

Umran Malik ended the inning with 2 wickets under his name at an economy rate of 5.80. Though India made a narrow loss in the must-win match, injured Rohit’s heroic performance grabbed the attention of many.

Winning the toss Bangladesh opted to bat first and scored 271 runs for 7 wickets at the end of the 50 overs. Indian bowlers made an impressive start by bagging 6 wickets for 69 runs in 19 overs but failed to control the run flow when Mahmudullah and Mehidy Hasan Miraz made a stand.
With a maiden century from Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Bangladesh scored 271 runs for 7 wickets loss at the end of the innings. On the other hand, Virat Kohli opened with Dhawan in the absence of Rohit Sharma who left the field after his thumb injury in the first inning.
Iyer made a much-needed 82 runs after the Indian openers failed to score the expected runs. India starts to lose wickets at regular intervals and struggled to build a partnership. When India lost Thakur, skipper Rohit Sharma walks to the crease to bat and made a slow start.
Rohit’s fight has gone in vain as India lost the match by 5 runs where they were in need of six runs off the last delivery. Rohit’s 27-ball half-century satisfied his fans who were in expectation of this kind of aggressiveness from the skipper for a long time.
But the happiness isn’t stayed for long as he along with Deepak Chahar, and Kuldeep Sen has been ruled out of the ODI series owing to various reasons. Notably, Rohit’s participation in the Test series is still in oscillation.
The last and final ODI match will be played on December 10 in Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram.
