Umran Malik’s raw pace can be a menace: India has very rarely seen bowlers who could regularly rack up speeds of 150 plus clicks and being candid, it is of utmost importance to harness such raw talent because they can be of a significant potential impact on the fabric of international cricket.
Umran Malik has been one such sensation in the ranks of IPL. Ever since his inception in the precursor edition of the tournament, the entire nation has been awed by his raw pace. The speedometer has often been troubled with Umran’s brutal speed that would often click 153 plus kays.
Here is what was said about Umran Malik’s raw speed
However, it is important a bowler also knows his line while racking such monstrous speeds because without discipline it is difficult for a fast bowler to sustain his menace. The batters can actually use the pace and glide it to gaps, nullifying the speed factor of the youngster.
So far, Sunrisers Hyderabad has lacked the sting of ascendancy in the tournament as their struggles in the IPL continue. With all said and done, Umran Malik has been a ray of sunshine in an otherwise clouded firmament.
Even though the youngster has been whacked around to all corners of the park, yet he has shown promise and this is important that he gets a proper mentor to guide him. It is more like raw force running riots and not knowing what to strike in its flight path.
Another important name that has been impressive for the Sunrisers has been rising Indian all-rounder, Washington Sundar. The first match against Pune saw Sundar being hammered around to all corners of the park but he crafted a brilliant 40 with the bat to underline his value in the team.
Against the Super Giants, however, his bat didn’t really speak much as he got out for 18 but he compensated for the same with the cherry in his arms as he claimed 2 for 28. Even though it may seem fragmented, these are the kind of displays that plays a crucial role in shaping the career of these youngsters.
Renowned journalist, K Shriniwas Rao recently took to Twitter to just emphasize how important these youngsters are to the cricketing fabric of India. He posted, “I will watch every SRH game for Umran and Washy. And yes, esp this guy Umran — hope selectors are watching him very very closely right now. Hope to see him grab the red ball very soon.”
