Umran Malik was brilliant for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League 2022 but the pacer failed miserably in the 16th season.

The right-arm seamer was dropped from the playing XI mid-way after ordinary performances with the ball.

Former India player Irfan Pathan slammed SRH for the way they treated the young bowler. He took to social media to express his disappointment.a

“League’s fastest bowler sitting out baffles me. Umran Malik wasn’t handled well by his team,” he wrote.

SRH are out of the playoff race after losing 7 games in the competition. They have 8 points from 11 matches.
