Sunrisers Hyderabad fast bowler Umran Malik is making a lot of headlines these days with his fast bowling. Against Gujarat Titans on Thursday night, this bowler did wonders. Giving the best performance of his IPL career, this 22-year-old fast bowler took 5 wickets by spending 25 runs in the quota of 4 overs. During this, Umran was also seen celebrating after taking the wicket in the style of his mentor Dale Steyn.
Former South African fast bowler Dale Steyn is currently part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad team in the IPL. He is playing the role of bowling coach in this team. Under his supervision, Umran Malik is also seen improving his performance.
Umran Malik, who made his debut during IPL 2021, got a chance to play a few matches last season. During this, the team management understood his importance and spent a hefty amount of Rs 4 crore and retained him for season 15. The management of Hyderabad knew that if they release this player, then the teams will bid fiercely on Umran in the auction.
Umran Malik hasn’t let down the team management and has been doing well this season, match-by-match. After taking 5 wickets against Gujarat Titans, he has reached the second position with 15 wickets in the Purple Cap race. Only Yuzvendra Chahal of Rajasthan Royals is ahead of him, who has 18 wickets in his name.
