“I also need a few overs to warm up my drums and pick up the pace,” Umran Malik’s cryptic comment on Ipl form

“Last year, I played every game and played everywhere. This time I played less overs and only took 5 wickets. When I was not playing, I was working hard,” said Umran Malik.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) speedster Umran Malik has lamented that lack of playing time has impacted his performance in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. The heartbreaking playmaker had a breakthrough season with SRH last time out . He had taken 22 wickets in 14 games and constantly uprooted stumps with his fast pace.

This time around, before SRH’s last game of the season against Mumbai Indians (MI), Malik had played seven games and won only five wickets. SRH head coach Brian Lara said earlier that the bowler was left out of the starting XI due to team balance.

“Not too sure to be honest (about Umran). Admittedly, he is a player with the X factor, who plays at 150 km/h, but I don’t really know what is going on behind the scenes, but he has a lot of X factor, cryptically mentioned the skipper SRH Aiden Markram on Malik who was dropped from the squad recently.
