Bengaluru: As India and Australia continue to battle at Perth’s Optus Stadium in the ongoing second Test, most of the talk during and before the match has been around the pitch.

The 22-yard strip at Perth’s new stadium was expected to be fast and “bounciest” according to the curator Brett Sipthorpe. So far the green wicket has lived up to expectations with even India’s part-time off-spinner Hanuma Vihari taking a wicket with a bouncer on the opening day on Friday.

As the talk is about bowling fast on a green top, let us look back at the fastest deliveries bowled by Indians in the history of the game across the three formats.

Top five fastest deliveries by Indians in international cricket

153 kmph - Jasprit Bumrah

The current fast bowling unit has been hailed as the best ever in Indian history. In the opening Test of the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy series, Jasprit Bumrah broke the Indian record for the fastest ball as he touched the 153kmph mark at the Adelaide Oval.

152.6 kmph - Ishant Sharma

In 2008, during India's tour to Australia, Ishant became a household name with his superb bowling to Ricky Ponting in the Perth Test. He continued to impress Down Under and delivered a 152.6 kmph ball during a ODI against Australia at the Adelaide Oval. He got the wicket of Adam Gilchrist with that pacy delivery.

"He has been a huge revelation and his rocket-like speed today is sensational. I don't remember any other Indian to have bowled so fast. Not among the ones I have seen since my playing days," Ravi Shastri, who is the current coach of the team, had said.

152.5 kmph - Umesh Yadav

Umesh's strength is his pace. Time and again he has proved it. He consistently bowls at 140kmph plus. In the ODI tri-series in Australia in 2012, Umesh bowled at 152.5 kmph against Sri Lanka in Brisbane.

150.5 kmph - Umesh Yadav

Umesh was again at his best as he breached the 150 kmph mark during a Test match.

150.2 kmph - Varun Aaron

Aaron, the right-arm fast bowler, delivered a ball at 150.2 kmph against Sri Lanka in a ODI in 2014. He played nine Tests and nine ODIs for India. Due to injuries, he was out of the national reckoning and has not played for India since November 2015. Recently, the 29-year-old had said that he is still hopeful of making a comeback to the Indian team.
