New Delhi: after many defeats Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) finally got its first win in the Women’s Premier League (WPL). Bangalore defeated UP Warriors by 5 wickets in their sixth match on Wednesday. The 20-year-old batsman Kanika Ahuja proved to be the star of Bangalore’s victory, who played an excellent inning of 46 runs in a difficult situation. Apparently Kanika is being praised. Apart from Kanika, another player contributed in this, whose name is Alice Parry. The Australian superstar did wonders with the ball. He not only took wickets, but also made a record.
In the match against UP at DY Patil Stadium, Bangalore’s bowlers performed amazingly and stopped them for just 135 runs. Alice Parry also played a big role in it. The veteran all-rounder took two big wickets in a single over. In the 16th over, Parry first took the wicket of Deepti Sharma and then ended the explosive innings of Grace Harris on the third ball.

world record after wickets
Harris and Deepti shared a 69-run partnership to take UP from 31 runs to 100 runs for 5 wickets. In such a situation, Parry gave great relief to Bangalore by taking both the wickets in the same over. Parry took wickets for the first time in 6 matches of the tournament. The Australian medium pacer did not stop here and made a new speed record in the same over.
In this over, when the speedometer figure flashed on the screen after Parry’s fifth ball, the speed of the ball was 130.5 kilometers per hour.

World record broken in a month
However, in the last few years, it has also been seen many times that speedometers mistakenly present wrong speed figures. In such a situation, whether this figure of speed is completely correct or not, it is difficult to confirm it completely. Nevertheless, if it is believed to be true, then with this high pace ball, Parry also made a record for the fastest delivery in women’s cricket. This record was made by South African veteran pacer Shabnim Ismail only last month. Shabnim made a record during the T20 World Cup with a speed of 128 kilometers per hour.
