Umran Malik, Team India’s young speedster, is already in action with his lethal bowling. In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, he made a name for himself by taking 22 wickets at a regular pace of 150+. With a bowling speed of 157 kmph, he is the fastest Indian bowler in IPL history. In the coming days, it is expected that the young speedster from Jammu and Kashmir will create a new sensation on the cricket field.
Umran Malik is expected to break Pakistan paceman Shoaib Akhtar’s record, according to former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee. Malik also stated that he will have to break Shoaib Akhtar’s record in the future.
Uman Malik is currently preparing to set a new world record in this category. Team India is preparing for the T20 series against South Africa, and Umran has spent some time bowling in the nets. Malik is said to have bowled at a speed of 163.7 kmph.
Umran Malik delivered a ball at 163.7 in Team India nets
Players from South Africa have already arrived in India ahead of a hectic five-match T20 series. They’re currently practicing in the nets in preparation for their match against the men in blue. In the most recent T20 World Cup, the Indian team did not have a successful campaign. India went on to have a below-average performance, failing to advance to the semi-finals.
Team India lacked the edge and extra bit of hunger despite having big names in the playing 11 and squad. As a result, the men in blue have had one of their worst T20 World Cup campaigns in history. Given that the upcoming T20 World Cup will be held in Australia, Team India will be looking to dominate. In comparison to the slow pitches in the UAE, the pacy and bouncy pitches suit Indian batsmen.
In the practice session leading up to the first T20 match, Umran Malik bowled at 163.7 kmph. With his speed, he immediately impressed head coach Rahul Dravid.
Meanwhile, Team India has a fantastic opportunity to conduct some team selection experiments. In the form of Umran Malik, Rahul Tripathi, Avesh Khan, Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Tilak Verma, and others, India now have a plethora of young talent.
