Ravi Shastri warning to Umran Malik: Sunrisers Hyderabad fast bowler Umran Malik has created a sensation in IPL 2022 with his fast pace. Two days ago, he had bowled against Delhi Capitals at a speed of 157 kmph. It was the fastest ball bowled by an Indian player in IPL. Along with this, he had also broken his previous record. But former India head coach Ravi Shastri said that these records are of no importance in T20 cricket unless he is able to get the ball in the right place.
He will play for India soon
In conversation with Star Sports, Ravi Shastri gave a stern warning to Umran saying that if he does not manage to channelize the ball in the right areas, then The delivery will hit with double the power. Shastri said "He will play for India very soon. But it is not true that the ball will hit the bat at the speed of 156 and go at the speed of 256. Pace is a good thing but you have to keep this thing in your mind that you have to hit the ball in the right place.
157’s speed doesn’t matter
he said "If you don’t fix it it will be damaged. As the tournament progresses the pitches will be slow and it has become batting friendly so it has to be corrected. I’m looking at the media and everywhere it says 156, 157 – doesn’t matter in this format. You have to get it in the right areas. If he attacks the stumps, he will be more consistent. 156, 157 – Very good but direct it in the right direction."
15 wickets in 11 innings
Umran has taken 15 wickets in 11 innings at 20.53 in IPL 2022. During this his economy rate was 9.10. Malik took 5 wickets against Gujarat Titans. However, since that game, he has conceded 100 runs in eight overs in two matches. In the match played against RCB on Sunday, Malik conceded 25 runs in 2 overs. During this he did not get any success.
