Umran Malik impressed everyone who watched IPL 2022 with his blistering pace and the point guard according to many former cricketers is set to play for the Indian team. SRH bowling coach Dale Steyn says the fast young bowler bowls 90% of his balls over 145 mph.
Umran Malik has become a household name due to the way he performed in the IPL 2022. The fast young bowler from Jammu and Kashmir regularly records speeds above 145 in the IPL. He also holds the record for the fastest pitch of the season at 157 km/h in SRH’s game against the Delhi Capitals. Many cricket greats and pundits believe that the young pacer will make his debut for the Indian team very soon.
Former South African speedster and SRH bowling coach Dale Steyn has often praised Umran Malik for his abilities. “He’s a fast bowler. Over 90% of his deliveries are between 142 and 145 km/h – tell yourself he’s looking for rhythm all the time. It makes hitters think differently in the way they approach him and where they mark him…. That’s why he took wickets.The message for him is to keep it simple. [Just] stay straight, look to attack the stumps, use the bouncer, be smart when you want to change the pace and play your court,” Dale Steyn told The Week.
Umran Malik was also taken to the cleaners due to the blistering pace he possesses and Dale Steyn is still convinced that any international team will want to have a bowler like this alongside them.
“How India uses him is up to them, but he is certainly capable of playing international cricket. A guy who regularly plays at 150mph; I think all international teams will want him. How and where you use it is essential,” he said.
