Everything that you need to know about Umran Malik

Umran Malik scorched the RCB batting line-up with some serious pace

Indian Premier League has once again lived up to its promise of gifting the rare young talents to the nation. After Harshal Patel grabbed the limelight with his extraordinary finesse of taking wickets and Venkatesh Iyer has popped a lot of eyeballs with his fine all-round display, the new man to set the tournament ablaze is a young speedster, Umran Malik.

He grabbed the limelight against KKR after belting out a brutal illustration of pace that put Nitish Rana in a lot of discomforts. However, he saved the best for the Indian captain to witness first-hand as he whipped the fastest delivery of IPL 2021 against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

The 21-year-old kid was absolutely relentless and in the ninth over of the RCB innings, he managed to dish out belters ranging at 147, 151, 152 and 153 clicks. He was the pick of the bowling slew as he racked up figures of 4-0-21-1, followed by some excellent death bowling from Bhuvneshwar Kumar.


He was phenomenal against KKR with figures of 4-0-27-0 and unleashed some nasty bouncers at a struggling Rana that left KKR tormented by a good deal. He bested the records set in IPL 2021 by illustrious international bowlers that include the likes of Lockie Ferguson and Anrich Nortje who racked up speeds of 152.7 and 151.77 respectively.

At the tender age of 21 years, it is good to witness the youngster bubbling with vim and verve as he is constantly kissing the hallowed mark of 150 that is deemed as the altar of greatness for a fast bowler.
