Umran Malik had a spectacular performance in the last IPL season. He took 22 wickets in 14 matches. Malik, who bowls at a speed of 150 kilometers per hour, made the opposing batters sweat. With this, everyone thought that Team India got another speedster. If Malik improves his talent, he will become a weapon for the Indian team. He also made his debut in the T20 match against Ireland in June last year.
Umran has failed to impress this season. Malik, who played seven matches, could take only 5 wickets. 10.35 runs with economy. He did not take a single wicket in the last three matches he played. In the match against Delhi, he bowled one over and gave away 22 runs. Due to this, he was not bowled again. He was not given a chance to play again due to his lack of form.
After Umran Malik was restricted to the bench without playing for six matches, the media questioned Sunrisers captain Aydin Markram about this. 150 km. Malik, who bowls with speed, will be useful as an X factor, Markram replied that he does not really know what is going on behind the scenes. Former cricketers like Zaheer Khan and Irfan Khan are of the opinion that Sunrisers management is not dealing properly with Umran Malik.
Zaheer Khan opined that ‘looking at the way Umran Malik’s services are being used… it seems that the franchise is not handling the Kashmiri pacer properly’. “A young pacer needs good support to grow. There should be a good atmosphere in the team. He needs good guidance. But nothing like that was seen from the management of Sunrisers,” commented Zaheer.
Before that, the former all-rounder of Team India Irfan Pathan also had the same opinion. Irfan tweeted that the fact that the fastest bowler in the league is restricted to the bench is disturbing him. Pathan tweeted that Umran Malik was not handled properly by his team.
“I don’t know what is going on behind the scenes. It is a matter of worry for the captain to say. Commentator Harsha Bhogle tweeted that Umran Malik didn’t get a chance in a single match. Netizens responded to this.. Tell me who was handled properly by the management of Sunrisers? They are asking.
“Umran performed very well last year. That you took credit. He needs your support this year. But did you stand by him? Are you using him properly? He is a young bowler. He is the future of Indian team. He also played well for Team India. You have not used him properly. The same can be said about the rest of the players in the franchise. Play with the opponent’s mind.. not with your own players” Yusuf Pathan made harsh comments addressing the Sunrisers management.
