Umran Malik may have to wait for international debut, coach Dravid hints


New Delhi. India head coach Rahul Dravid has always believed in consistency and gave clear indications on Tuesday that young pacer Umran Malik may have to wait for his turn. Dravid was speaking ahead of the 5-match T20I series between India and South Africa starting on Thursday. When asked about Umran, he said, ‘We have to see how much time we can give him to play. We have a big team and not everyone can be in the playing XI.

Team India’s head coach Rahul said, ‘I like consistency and I believe in giving time to people. Arshdeep has also done well and he is also a good player. Rahul Dravid further said, ‘We also have some experienced players in Harshal, Bhuvi and Avesh who played in the last series. It’s good to have young players too, which makes the pool bigger. Let’s see what they can do.

He also praised Umran Malik. Rahul said, ‘He bowls very fast. Nice to see Indian bowlers bowling so fast in IPL. The more he plays, the more he shines. I would like him to do well in Test cricket.
