Young Rising Star of Sunrisers Hyderabad

Young Rising Star of Sunrisers Hyderabad
Matthew Wade was made to appear like a bank clerk sent to war after swatting Shaheen Afridi for two spectacular sixes to win the T20 world cup for Australia. He had just witnessed Hardik Pandya being roughed up by a bouncer from Umran Malik, thus an apprehension-tinged expectation of a bouncer seemed to come first. For Wade, all subsequent thoughts would have been afterthoughts as Malik's thunderbolt rushed towards him, rushed him, and slammed his pads in a flash. Pandya had scarcely considered the pull shot as a counter, but the bouncer had already ricocheted off his helmet. Pace messes with your mind, especially when it's over 150 kph like Malik's.

Malik also won the pace duel against Lockie Ferguson of New Zealand that night, flinging the top five fastest deliveries in the game, the fastest being 153.3 kph, followed by 151.2, 150.1, 149.9, and 149.3. He's been speedy for a while now, and his radar has been steadily improving.

Malik bowled nets for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL 2021, replacing Natarajan, who was out due to Covid-19. He unleashed the second-fastest ball in the competition, a 152.95 kph beast versus Royal Challengers Bangalore, without the claustrophobia of the nettings but with the jitters of showtime, arc lights descending on him.

Virat Kohli led the applause at the post-match presentation. He commented that you will keep your eyes peeled for talent like this and make sure you reach their full potential whenever you see it.

Malik was quickly added to the Indian T20 World Cup squad as a net bowler, and he was also kept by the Sunrisers Hyderabad(SRH) ahead of this IPL season.

Abdul Rashid, Malik's father, carries on selling fruits in his shop at Shaheedi Chowk in Gujjar Nagar, Jammu. He mentioned that with this shop, he has been able to provide food for his family. His kid has become a household name throughout the United States, but it does not mean he will stop working.

Umran, Rashid believes, is no longer just his kid because he has become the nation's favourite.

Meanwhile, Randhir Singh Manhas, Malik's coach, believes his ward can bowl significantly faster after seeing him for the first time. He remarked that for someone who only started bowling with a leather ball five years ago, hitting 150 kph is a significant accomplishment. In the future, the youngster will undoubtedly be able to bowl faster.
