Umran Malik, who created a sensation in the IPL with his pace, was selected for the first time in Team India. However, they are still waiting for their turn. Umran Malik has been selected in the squad for the five-match T20 International series against South Africa, but did not get a chance in the first match. Even in the second match, he is probably going to sit on the bench. Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer and selector Dilip Vengsarkar has claimed that Umran has done everything, due to which he should get a chance in the playing XI.
22-year-old fast bowler Umran Malik had to sit on the bench in the first match of the five-match T20 series against South Africa. Even in the first match, the bowlers had scored 212 runs. Despite this, India’s head coach Rahul Dravid had said that he is not willing to field Umran Malik right now. He says the youngster needs to show patience for India’s debut, but Vengsarkar says Umran Malik, who took 24 wickets in IPL 2022, is all set for international cricket.
Former selector Dilip Vengsarkar while talking to Khaleej Times said, “Everyone has a different approach to the game, but I think he deserves to play in the IPL after showing that kind of pace and accuracy. Also when You are playing (international cricket) at home, it is the right time to test someone like him. He is one of the most exciting players I have seen in the last 10 years. I hope he does well because he is very fit. Looks and he has fast bowling aggression. He’s got pace and accuracy. I think he should be able to play for India for a long time.”
