New Delhi. Umran Malik impressed everyone with his speed in IPL 2022. He performed amazingly in the 15th season of the T20 league. On the basis of this, he has also got a place in the Indian team for the 5-match T20 series against South Africa (India vs South Africa) starting from June 9. This fast bowler from Jammu and Kashmir bowled at a speed of 157 km per hour in IPL. This is the fastest ball by any Indian bowler in IPL history. Now his next target is Shoaib Akhtar’s record. The former Pakistan fast bowler has made a world record for throwing the ball at a speed of 161 kmph.
Talking to News 24, Umran Malik said that I will target Shoaib Akhtar’s fastest ball record in future. If the above is ready to do so, I will give my best and hopefully I will break the record. “I need to maintain my fitness level to bowl at 150 kmph and hopefully I will be able to do that,” he said.
eyes on victory
He said that right now my focus is not on Shoaib Akhtar’s record. I want to bowl well. Want to bowl fast and help my country win all 5 matches against South Africa. He said that if the above person wants, then I will get that record. But right now the focus is on maintaining the body and strength. In IPL, he landed for Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, the team could not reach the playoffs.
22-year-old Umran Malik took 22 wickets at an average of 20 in 14 matches of IPL. His best performance was 5 wickets for 25 runs. During this he bowled 4 batsmen. But his economy was above 9. So they would like to improve it. He has taken 33 wickets in 22 matches of overall T20.
