Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) young fast bowler Umran Malik has set the stage on fire in the ongoing IPL 2022 game between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Lucknow Super Giants. Umran Malik continued to impress everyone with his speeds and this time he has clocked 140 plus in speed.
Yes, you read that right. Umrah Malik, who impressed one and all in the last game of SRH against Rajasthan Royals because of his fiery bowling, has once again managed to steal all the limelight as he was even better today in terms of speed and control.
Every ball he bowled today was delivered at an excess of 140. His first four deliveries were above 145 while his last delivery was just above 140 clicks.
Impressed with his bowling speed, SRH bowling mentor Dale Steyn spoke on tv, praising Malik for his superb bowling. He said: “Everyone is excited to watch Umran Malik, he is consistently clicking near to 150 kmph,”
Meanwhile, social media has been all praises for young talent. From cricketers, experts to fans, everyone is coming up with amazing reactions to its incredible speed of Malik. Among many, former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan took to his social media and came up with a suggestion for the team.
Irfan Pathan, who is very active on social media, is known for his deep cricket knowledge and for his opinions related to cricket. In his Tweet, Irfan suggested that using Umran in the middle overs will help his team in a long-term perspective. He wrote:
“Using umran Malik in the middle overs will work for SRH in long term! #SRHvsLSG”

Talking about his performance, while he got the better of Devdutt Padikkal on the last ball of his final over as the batter got deceived by his pace and was castled, however, he leaked 39 runs in his quota.
