Should Umran Malik Be Picked For India T20 World Cup Squad Ravi Shastri Says No

Young fast bowler Umran Malik has been making headlines in recent times due to his speed. Umran, who has been in the news for his speed since IPL 2022, has been included in Team India for the first time for the five-match T20 series against South Africa. However, he did not get a chance to debut in the first T20 played in New Delhi, where Team India had to face defeat. Umran has made many legends crazy with his speed and now these veterans feel that the Jammu and Kashmir fast bowler should get a chance in the Indian team for the upcoming T20 World Cup. However, Ravi Shastri, the former head coach of Team India, is not in favor of it. He has said that it is too early to pick Umran in the T20 World Cup 2022 squad.

Former captain said big thing on comparing Umran with Shoaib Akhtar

Shastri said in a conversation with ESPNcricinfo, ‘No, not in the T20 World Cup yet. Prepare Umran more now. Be sure to take him with the team. If possible, give Umran a chance to play 50-over cricket or Test cricket. Build him with the Test team and then see how he adapts. At the same time, former New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori said, ‘I think he should be with the Indian team all the time, even if he is not in the team. I think his time will come.
