After the dismissal of Sanaka, the victory came back in Team India’s lap. Sanaka was dismissed after scoring 45 runs in 27 balls.

Before the series against Sri Lanka, Umran had said that he would break Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar’s record of throwing the fastest ball in international cricket. It looks like Umran will soon break his record. During the 2003 World Cup, Shoaib Akhtar had bowled a ball at a speed of 161.3 kmph to Nick Knight against England, which is a world record in the cricket world.
