Updated on: Apr 18, 2023 7:35 pm IST
The crucial news development coming from the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) camp is that their premier fast bowler Umran Malik is not playing their fifth match of Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Mumbai Indians (MI) being played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. After having conceded two disappointing losses on the trot at the start of the Indian Premier League 2023 season, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have made a brilliant comeback with two excellent victories against Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings in their previous two games.
SRH vs MI: Why is Umran Malik Not Playing Today’s IPL Match?
After winning the toss and opting to bowl first, the Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Aiden Markram revealed that speedster Umran Malik is not part of the SRH playing 11 for the SRH vs MI IPL 2023 match on Tuesday. However, the right-arm Indian tearaway fast bowler is absolutely fit and part of the five substitute members out of which one can be used as an Impact Player at any moment in the game. Umran has picked up as many as 5 wickets from 4 matches in IPL 2023 season at an expensive economy of more than 11. Incidentally, Malik was the highest wicket-taker for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2022 where he took 22 wickets from 12 games.
“We are gonna bowl first. Wicket looks slightly drier, hopefully it gets better with the dew and we restrict them to a chaseable total. Not in the 16 (no changes). We’ll see how conditions play and adjust from there. Our fielding needs to improve. We let ourselves down slightly in the previous games. (Playing spin) We are improving game by game. There’s great spin attacks throughout the comp and if you’re not up to the mark, they are gonna put a lot of pressure on you. It’s about guys exploring options, finding options that are comfortable to them and it’s about trusting that out in the middle,” said Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Aiden Markram during the toss.
