Former South African legend Dale Steyn is currently a part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) set-up as a fast-bowling coach in the ongoing 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League. Steyn, who is hailed as the world’s number one Test pacer, has worked extensively with several young talented pacers like Umran Malik in the nets.
Umran Malik has become one of the most talked-about players in the ongoing IPL 2022 all thanks to his terrific performances and raw pace. Malik has picked up 15 wickets in 10 matches played so far. On Thursday, he broke his own record as he clocked the fastest delivery of the season with a 157kmph stunner in the final over against Delhi Capitals.
Apart from Malik, Dale Steyn has been working with former U-19 star Kartik Tyagi. The Uttar Pradesh star was roped in for INR 4 crore in the IPL 2022 mega-auction earlier this year. He was earlier a part of the Rajasthan Royals.
Kartik finally got an opportunity to make his debut for SunRisers Hyderabad against Delhi Capitals in the last match of SRH and he bowled four overs, conceding 37 runs however he went wicketless. Just like Umran Malik, Kartik also reached 150kmph in his first over against DC.
Meanwhile, on Saturday, SunRisers Hyderabad shared a video via their official Twitter handle, wherein Tyagi was seen bowling in the nets with Steyn watching him closely. Tyagi bowled a total of six deliveries and impressed with his pace, Dale reacted by saying, “Insane, it looks good.”
