“He Will Take Some Time To Mature,” says Mohammed Shami on Umran Malik.
Umran Malik is one of India’s most exciting fast bowling prospects right now, capable of consistently bowling in the 150kmph range. The SunRisers Hyderabad pacer bowled the fastest ball of the season against the Delhi Capitals, clocking 157kmph. India now has a surplus of fast bowlers who can bowl at a high pace, and the big question on everyone’s mind right now is whether Umran will be called up to the national team.
“Umran Malik has pace, but in my opinion, pace isn’t all that important. Any batter will be satisfied if you bowl at 140 mph but can move the ball both ways. He has the pace, but I believe it will take him a little longer to mature because bowlers must work on accuracy as well as pace “Shami stated this during a press conference on Friday.
When asked about the country’s increasing supply of young fast bowlers, Shami stated, “Obviously, it is a good sign for any country when you see youngsters bowling with good pace and swing.” When you see that you have the talent and the speed, your mind clears and you know what is best for your team.
Mohammed Shami on Umran Malik: It all comes down to experience, so it is critical to provide games for the children and to keep the children with seniors.
“Many fast bowlers have risen to prominence in the IPL this year. It’s encouraging to see that our country’s future is being taken care of. Mohsin Khan, who is young and strong, has practiced with me. He simply needs to concentrate more; you must work on both physical and mental aspects. I just hope that all of these young people do well in the future.”
Umran has already taken five wickets this season, against the Gujarat Titans, and his current wicket tally stands at 15. However, in the last three games, the pacer has been found wanting, failing to take a single wicket. The Jammu fast bowler is consistently hitting 150kmph, but he has been leaking runs in recent matches.
Shami’s Gujarat Titans became the first team this season to qualify for the playoffs earlier this week, and Shami is pleased with how his team has performed this season.
“We have formed a strong team bond, as evidenced by our complete team performance in each match. Everyone has gelled, and the package has been beneficial to us. We did well as a team in the tournament “Shami stated.
