Umran Malik, the name which is the current hot topic and turned out to be another fascinating name from this IPL season. The 21-year-old had made his debut in the last match for Sunrisers against Kolkata.
Now, who is Umran Malik & why he is trending?
Umran Malik is a 21-year-old pacer from Jammu who came in as the replacement for T Natarajan. He bowled a total of 4 overs and conceded 27 runs wicketless. He showed a phenomenal display of bowling and even clocked 150+. Malik was quick, accurate, and also has all the potentials to be a frontline bowler for team India. 150 km mark was a faraway distance for Indian bowlers for a long time. As our bowlers focus more on swing rather than going all out.
In his first bowl, he clocked 143 and bowled above 150 two times in the overall course of the match. Cricket pundits are heaping praises for this Jammu boy due to his speed & accuracy. He had also impressed his captain and several legends like Ashish Nehra, DD Gupta, etc.
Now he had become the fastest Indian pacer in this season of IPL. It’s a pleasure to see Indian bowlers ticking the 150 marks. Age is also on his side as he has many more years to come. He has enough time to mold himself. Hope he turns out to be even brighter and turns out to be the front face of the Indian pace lineup.
However, the outcome of the match was not so bright for Sunrisers as they could only get a score of 116. The start was not so great for Kolkata as Malik has been clocking 140+ frequently. Shubman Gill made sure that his team must stand tall after the match by delivering unbelievable batting.
