Umran Malik has come a long way since joining Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2021. The franchise retained the fastest Indian pacer for IPL 2022, and he has proved their trust right.
He took 4 wickets against Punjab Kings and was named the Man of the Match for his bowling display. The 22-year-old bowler from Jammu & Kashmir dismissed three batters in the 20th over of the innings without conceding a run.
The new pace sensation dedicated the first award to his father, a fruit vendor in Jammu.
“I am dedicating my first man of the match award to my father,” he said.
Malik is regularly bowling over 145kmph in the 15th season of the tournament, and several cricket experts feel Umran will soon play for India in international cricket.
