There has been a lot of talk around the Jammu and Kashmir pace bowling sensation, Umran Malik. With each passing day, he seems more menacing than ever and IPL has become a breeding ground for him, especially given the brutal raucous pace he brings to the herd.
Even though it is not easy to break into the Indian bowling lineup as it consists of high profile fast bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. With Harshal Patel already on the sidelines, Umran will need some fortune and consistently good bowling to even be considered likely for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
This is what the journalist had to say about Umran Malik
Popular Pakistani journalist Mazher Arshad, however, had reason to believe India could host the youngster in the upcoming Asia Cup, which could serve as the perfect prelude to the biannual T20 extravaganza to be played later this year.
The famous journalist was heard to quote: “Pakistani batters should keep an eye on Umran Malik’s bowling. They could meet him on October 23 in Melbourne and before that in the Asian Cup.”

The youngster has seemingly improved his variations and channeled his pace in the right direction under the tutelage of Dale Steyn, one of the most devastating fast bowlers the world had ever seen. He kisses the deck hard and attacks the stumps.
Given his raw blast of speed, batters find it a huge challenge to take down their bat in time. Given the relentless speeds of over 145 clicks, which also occasionally exceed 152 kays, the batters forced the batters to keep their bats low and try to knock it out.
This is exactly what makes him so dangerous. However, being a fast bowler with such deadly speeds also has its drawbacks. Pace bowling requires the utmost fitness and to continue the threat that Umran poses it is very important that he keeps himself in one piece. He is young and has an extremely bright future if he can avoid injuries.
