Former India captain and current BCCI President Sourav Ganguly is backing Umran Malik to make India debut. The 22-year-old has been one of the most successful bowlers of IPL 2022 and has taken 15 wickets so far.

His raw pace has attracted the attention of the legendary cricketers, who have lauded the Jammu & Kashmir fast bowler for bowling over 150 kmph on a consistent basis.

Ganguly feels Umran is on the verge of playing for the Men in Blue in the near future.

“How many bowlers can bowl at 150 kmph? Not many. I won’t be surprised if he gets picked for the Indian team. We have to be careful while using him, though. Umran is the fastest. I also like Kuldeep Sen. Also, T Natarajan has made good comeback. We will have Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami. Finally, it is up to the selectors,” said Ganguly.
