Umran Malik, a pace wonder, has been called up for India’s forthcoming T20 series against South Africa. After a great run in this year’s Indian Premier League, the Sunrisers Hyderabad speedster earned a position in the squad (IPL). The 22-year-old wowed with his sheer speed and ability to hit 150 kph on a regular basis, and made headlines by earning the ‘fastest delivery of the match’ title 14 times in a row during the IPL season that recently ended.

Umran, who finished the tournament with 22 wickets at an average of 20.18 in 14 games, was praised for his lightning pace. He shocked several batting assaults as the son of a fruit seller and went on to become the quickest Indian bowler in IPL history. In the game against the Delhi Capitals, he ran at 157 kph.

Former Australia Brett Lee, who compares Umran to great Waqar Younis, has also praised the lightning-quick bowler from Jammu. With his speed and reverse swing bowling, the Pakistan pacer destroyed the opposition in his prime. In his brilliant career, Younis Khan took 373 Test wickets and 416 ODI wickets.

“I’m a huge fan. Umran Malik, I believe, has a lot of speed to burn. He’s a competitor, a good bowler who, like many other fast bowlers in the past, runs in. The first person who springs to mind is Waqar Younis “ANI quoted Brett Lee as saying.

Lee also addressed Virat Kohli’s recent struggles with the bat. The renowned Indian batsman is in the midst of his worst slump of his career, having scored only 341 runs in 16 IPL games. His IPL 2022 campaign came to an end as Royal Challengers Bangalore lost by seven wickets to Rajasthan Royals in the Qualifier-2.

“I, like many others across the globe, am a huge Kohli fan. I only hope he gets the chance he deserves. He just needs some rest. Spend some time with his family, re-energize, and perhaps we’ll see him hit more hundreds in the near future “Despite starting the innings in most games, the former India captain had a disappointing IPL season, collecting runs at a below-par average of 22.73.
