New Delhi: In the second T20 match played between India and Ireland, speed sensation Umran Malik won the hearts of cricket lovers in the last over. Ireland needed 17 runs to win in the last over, but Umran’s direct bowling gave Team India a 4-run victory.
Sanjay Manjrekar gave advice
Seeing the beginning of Umran in international cricket, the corridors of cricket are resonating with applause. Meanwhile, former India legend Sanjay Manjrekar has given an advice to fast bowler Umran Malik. Manjrekar tweeted, “Umran Malik is a rare talent! In practice, he has to bowl one lakh balls only on one stump. Accuracy and other skills will come in time, but it should never come at the cost of speed. Malik got his first international wicket by dismissing Irish wicketkeeper-batsman Lorcan Tucker.
hard work success
Umran Malik’s journey in cricket has been full of ups and downs. 22-year-old Umran, son of a fruit vendor, worked hard during IPL 2022 to make it to Team India. Malik has maintained his speed even after IPL. However, he conceded a lot of runs in his five overs in two matches. He conceded 56 runs at an economy of 11.20. Cricket experts say that as Umran Malik gets opportunities, he will get better. His talent will flourish under pressure. It remains to be seen whether he gets a place in the upcoming T20 series against England and the T20 World Cup.
