  • Umran Malik Speed IND vs SL 2nd ODI

    Umran Malik Speed: India’s tearaway fast bowler Umran Malik is not only consistently bowling at a rapid bowling speed but also picking up crucial wickets during the middle-overs stage in international cricket. The pace sensation hailing from Jammu and Kashmir is currently part of the Indian team in the ongoing three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka at home. He will definitely be a vital clog of the Indian bowling attack in the lead up to this ODI World Cup 2023 at home.

    In the ongoing India vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI, India’s fastest bowler Umran Malik once again breached the 145 kmph mark on the speed gun at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. While having bowled his first seven overs, the right-arm speedster ended up taking as many as two important wickets. He has consistently troubled the Sri Lankan batsmen during this entire white-ball series with some amazing bowling pace as he bowled the quickest delivery by any Indian pacer in the history of ODI cricket when he touched the 156 kmph mark during the 1st ODI in Guwahati. Incidentally, Umran has played a total of 13 white-ball games for India and he has gone wicketless only once so far.

    Umran Malik finished as the leading wicket-taker during the IND vs SL 2023 three-match T20I series with 7 wickets from 3 games and has already taken 5 scalps in the two ODI matches as well.

    “If I do well, and if I’m lucky, I’ll break that (Shoaib Akhtar’s record). But I don’t think about it at all. Right now, I’m only thinking about performing well for the country,” said Umran Malik during a recent interview.

    “You don’t get to realize how fast you’ve bowled during the match. It’s only when we come back after the game when we get to know how fast I was. During the game, my only focus is on bowling in the right areas and picking up wickets,” Malik added.
