The 5th match of the Indian Premier League is currently ongoing between the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Rajasthan Royals (RR), and SRH’s young pace bowler Umran Malik is earning all the praise on the world for his serious pace bowling.
Jammu and Kashmir’s Umran Malik made the headlines last year after making his debut for the Hyderabad based franchise. He impressed the fans and experts with his raw pace bowling.
Umran was also among the 3 players who were retained before the IPL 2022 Mega Auction by the Sunrisers Hyderabad alongside team’s captain Kane Williamson and Abdul Samad.
And with his performance so far in the first match, he proved that what we saw last year, was not a fluke. Even though Umran didn’t had a great start to the match against Rajasthan Royals, he made a solid comeback to have taken 2 wickets, both with some serious pace bowling.
Fans and experts on Twitter went absolutely crazy seeing the huge potential that Umran has. After bowling an absolute thunderous ball to dismiss Devdutt Padikkal, who was looking good, Twitter went buzzing in praise of the youngster. Here’s how Twitter reacted.
