Umran Malik was unplayable against Gujarat Titans and took five wickets to keep his team in the contest. He bowled deadly yorkers, which were unplayable for even the best batters in IPL 2022. The 22-year-old dismissed the likes of Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya, Wriddhiman Saha, David Miller and Abhinav Manohar.
This was the best bowling spell by Umran, who has bowled in excess of 145 kph throughout the tournament. The Jammu & Kashmir pacer conceded just 25 runs while taking five wickets in 4 overs. SRH fast bowling mentor Dale Steyn celebrated Malik’s sensational bowling in the dressing room.
Earlier, he had joined the Sunrisers Hyderabad as a net bowler but was drafted into the team after T Natarajan was ruled out for a few matches. Malik was retained by the Hyderabad-based franchise for IPL 2022.
