Dilip Vengsarkar makes big statement about Umran Malik for T20 WC – said former India captain and selector chief


Impressed by Umran Malik’s fast bowling, former India captain Dilip Vengsarkar believes that the young Jammu and Kashmir bowler should be selected in the team for this year’s T20 World Cup. The T20 World Cup is to be played in Australia in October-November later this year. Umran took 22 wickets in 14 matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2022. However, he made headlines by consistently bowling at a speed of 95 mph. This rewarded him with a place in the squad for the T20 series against South Africa. He is also included in the T20 team that toured Ireland.

Former chief of selectors Vengsarkar told the media on Saturday, “I have hope because he (Umran) is a wonderful talent. He did well in IPL 2002 and deserves a chance. I hope he will be on the plane to Australia. He is young and eager to do well. You should give a chance to someone who is in rhythm.

Vengsarkar’s 1983 World Cup-winning teammate and former India all-rounder Roger Binny also feels that Umran should be given a chance in all three formats. Binny said, ‘Obviously now there is going to be a big group of fast bowlers. And he (Umran) should be given a chance immediately because he has proved that his speed is faster than others. He bowled some amazing yorkers in the IPL. In such a situation, you cannot keep a young player out for a long time.
