<p>Ismail smashed the record on Tuesday at Arun Jaitley Stadium during the Mumbai Indians’ WPL match against the Delhi Capitals. The delivery had a speed of 132.1 km/h (82.08 mph).</p>
<p>Ismail’s thunderbolt struck former Australia captain Meg Lanning’s pad on the second ball of the third over of the match, becoming the first delivery in women’s cricket history to be recorded at a speed of more than 130 km/h, according to ICC sources.</p>
<p>Ismail bowled at 128 km/h (79.54 mph) against the West Indies in 2016 and twice during the most recent ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup in 2022. She represented South Africa in all eight previous ICC Women’s T20 World Cups and only gave up on international cricket after last year’s domestic competition.</p>
<p>Ismail’s efforts were in futile, however, as the MI lost to the DC by 29 runs after she bowled four costly overs and finished with statistics of 1/46.</p>
