This has happened only three times in the history of the Indian Premier League, when a bowler has clean bowled four batsmen in the same match. Before the Gujarat Titans vs Sunrisers Hyderabad match in IPL 2022, which was played on 27 April, this happened in the 2012 IPL. Umran Malik took five wickets against Gujarat Titans, out of which he cleaned four batsmen. Thus Umran has joined the elite club of Lasith Malinga and Siddharth Trivedi.
For the first time in IPL, Lasith Malinga did this feat against Delhi Capitals (then Delhi Daredevils) in 2011 while playing for Mumbai Indians. After this, the very next year Rajasthan Royals fast bowler Siddharth Trivedi clean bowled four batsmen of Royal Challengers Bangalore. Umran clean bowled Gujarat Titans’ Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha, David Miller and Abhinav Manohar.
Apart from this, Umran also dismissed captain Hardik Pandya, but he was not clean bowled. Umran took five wickets for 25 runs in four overs. This is the first time in IPL 2022 that a player from the losing team has been adjudged the man of the match. In this match, Umran was awarded the man of the match award.
