Who is Umran Malik?

India’s Seamer Umran Malik is making his ODI debut. So far, he has heated things up with some rapid fast bowling. Umran Malik’s first over in the ODIs was really slick as the pacer touched 150 km with his bowling.

Check out the numbers 

The speedster seamer from Jammu and Kashmir caused a lot of problems for the Kiwi batters playing at the Eden Park.

His first six balls were as follows –

  • 145.9 kph
  • 143.3 kph
  • 145.6 kph
  • 147.3 kph
  • 137.1 kph
  • 149.6 kph

Also that’s a real deal and almost to touch the 150 mark in the International cricket . As he is young and passionate with the ball. Seems like to break many records of the bowling line up from the Indian Side in the future coming matches.

This was not the end, as Umran hiked the speed up another notch on this third over. He clocked 153.1 kph on that one and sits second in the fastest ball ranks of the match.

Also, the New Zealand Seamer, Lockie Ferguson bowled the fastest delivery of the match when his speed clocked 153.4 kph.

Malik had previously made his debut in the T20I format in Ireland earlier this year but had a poor outing, with just 2 wickets in 3 matches along with an expensive economy of 12.44. He was one of the picks for India’s T20 World Cup squad but was eventually left out. On the contrary, it seems he has turned things around in the longer format.

Umran Malik picked up 2 wickets in that fiery spell as both Devon Conway and Daryl Mitchell fell off.
