Rising India pacer Umran Malik is one of the players to look out for on the team’s ongoing tour of New Zealand. An extremely new T20I career for Umran, in which he has played just three matches for the national side, is yet to see an impressive performance from him. The right-arm speedster has taken two wickets and conceded against an economy of 12.44.
Umran has been named in both the Indian squad for New Zealand’s T20I and ODI series. Former India pacemaker Zaheer Khan said the exposure will help the player, but his future will depend on how he learns and continues to perform.
“The variation in your tempo attack is a must and you’ve seen teams that follow that kind of pattern. You need a left arm bowler, you need someone who can swing the ball, you need someone who is a real fast striker .” bowler. If it’s all in one package, then even better, but if not, you’d want to use the variation in your attack in the bowling line-up and make good use of different conditions,” Zaheer said while answering an The US Express News question on Prime Video.
“Umran has been a really exciting talent and this kind of exposure will definitely help him, it’s about how he moves things forward if he consistently wants to take the spot,” he added.
Indian speedster Umran Malik, who easily clicks over 145 mph, picked 22 wickets in 14 matches in IPL 2022. His best bowling figures in the season was 5 for 25 while his economy rate was 9.03.
