The Sunrises Hyderabad bowler, Umran Malik, was very close to achieving the Purple Cap instead of Yuzvendra Chahal in IPL 2022. Umran has 22 wickets with mind-blowing bowling deliveries while playing in the IPL 2022. whereas Yuzvendra Chahal, the Purple Cap winner, has taken around 27 wickets in the IPL 2022 after the final match.
Except for the Gujarat Titans, each of the nine teams expects that after losing the games, they will return in good form in the next year to help their team win the IPL. Everything depends upon next year’s IPL auction.
Apart from the IPL, Umran Malik has been signed by the BCCI to represent India in the T20 series against South Africa, which begins on June 9th, 2022, and will be led by captain KL Rahul and vice-captain Rishabh Pant in the absence of senior batsmen Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. The teams of India and South Africa will play five T20Is matches and will score maximum victories too.
Umran Malik’s performance in the IPL match has improved several times whenever he delivered fast bowls to batters, which has left most people impressed with him, and he has also helped his team win the match. However, Umran’s efforts have not impressed bowlers like Shaheen Afridi, who were also known for their quick bowling delivery.
Shaheen Afridi says that speed is of no use when the bowler is unable to pick such wickets. The pacer needs to improve his game instead of focusing on the speed of the bowl. Without the line, length and swing, there is no use of high speed, says Shaheen Afridi when he asks about New Zealand pacer Lockie Ferguson and the youngest Indian bowler, Umran Malik.
Shaheen Afridi was a Pakistan fast bowler who won the Sir Garfield Sobers award for men’s cricketer of the year in 2021 and also dismissed their opponent team’s batters with his swing, length, and line. He was such a great performer in his time.
