T20 World Cup: Former England off-spinner Graeme Swann said that if he had to pick the Indian team for the ICC T20 World Cup to be held in Australia later this year, he would include Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer Umran Malik.
Demand to include this Indian bowler in T20 World Cup
In the IPL match against Gujarat Titans on Wednesday, Umran Malik impressed everyone in the IPL 2022 tournament by taking 5/25 wickets with fast pace and accuracy. Umran Malik has five wickets for the first time in the league. Four of Umran Malik’s five wickets came from clean bowling, in which he bowled Wriddhiman Saha with a yorker at 153 kmph.
Umran express bowler
Swann told cricket.com, ‘Without a doubt, I would love to see Umran play in Australia. India has everything, but they don’t have fast bowlers. Bumrah is fast, but he is not as expressive as Umran. Get him involved as soon as possible. He is a good player for international cricket.
Number of wickets of Umran Malik in IPL 2022 is 15
Umran Malik’s number of wickets in IPL 2022 has reached 15, which is equal to that of his Hyderabad teammate and left-arm pacer T Natarajan and just three wickets behind table-topper Rajasthan Royals leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.
Umran Malik’s weapon is fast bowling
Swann said, ‘Umran Malik is bowling fast. In the beginning of IPL 2022, he was fast, but runs were being scored on his balls. When I heard Dale Steyn say that I have asked him to think about his bowling as it is his weapon, I was happy. He was an amazing bowler.
