Umran Malik is getting all the headlines as the Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer clocked at more than 153 KMPH in the match against Gujarat Titans.
Match number 21 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 is being played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans in Mumbai’s DY Patil Stadium.
After Sunrisers Hyderabad’s captain Kane Williamson decided to bowl first after winning the toss, pace bowler Umran Malik is proving the decision right, as the pacer managed to clock over 153 KMPH in the match.
Umran Malik is touted as India’s one of the best young pacer in the current IPL 2022. He is capable of hitting 150 constantly, which makes him India’s one of the fastest bowler, and the most interesting fact is that, he is just 21-years-old and has lot to learn.
Umran rose to fame in IPL 2021 with his serious pace bowling, that led to Sunrisers Hyderabad opting to retain the services for the pacer before the IPL 2022 Mega Auction.
He proved that what the world saw in IPL 2021 was not a fluke as he continued to clock at more than 150 in IPL 2022 as well. He took the wicket of Matthew Wade tonight, but went expensive, giving away 39 runs in his 4 overs.
However, it is his pace that is giving Indian fans on Twitter a big hope. He will learn more skills and will get better, but the pace he is bowling at, is a sign for goodness. Here’s how Twitter reacted to Umran Malik bowling the fastest ball of IPL 2022.
