In a rain-shortened T20 International on Sunday, India took a 1-0 lead in the two-game series by defeating Ireland by chasing down their score of 108-4. Due to a rain-delayed start, the game at Malahide was shortened to 12 overs for each side. Hardik Pandya, the captain of India, called the toss and chose to bat first, despite the likelihood that rain would halt play once again. Even though it didn’t rain when the game began, Ireland had a horrible start as their skipper Andy Balbirnie was dismissed for a duck, and Paul Stirling and Gareth Delany also lost their wickets inside the first four overs.

With the ball, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was India’s enforcer. The senior paceman effectively took advantage of the circumstances by swinging the ball both ways. With a devastating inswinger, he eliminated Ireland captain Andrew Balbirnie and returned 1/16, including a first. Despite the bowler’s outstanding performance, the speedometer generated the most buzz on social media. It revealed Bhuvneshwar bowling at speeds of 200 kph or more in a few instances, confusing Indian fans.

The game’s opening delivery from Bhuvneshwar read 201 kph. The speedometer suddenly registered 208 kph in the same span, prompting several fans to tweet about the malfunction. Some even brought in Shoaib Akhtar, whose 161.3 kph ball retains the record for the fastest ever in cricket history.
