Malik bowls at a consistent pace of 150-155kmph and has won the fastest delivery of the match award in almost all of the matches he has played this season. However, Malik bowled the fastest ball of the ongoing edition against the Delhi Capitals on Thursday at Brabourne Stadium, breaking his own previous record.
