Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) pacer Umran Malik breathed fire with the ball in his side’s clash against Gujarat Titans (GT) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday (April 27). The right-arm pacer, who is known for his raw pacer, terrorised Gujarat Titans batters with his scorching deliveries during their 196-run chase.
Malik drew the first blood for SRH by cleaning up Shubman Gill in his very first over before dismissing GT skipper Hardik Pandya, who was caught by Marco Jansen in his second over. The 22-year-old didn’t stop there and continued to impress with his rapid pace as he troubled the GT batters.
The youngster from Jammu & Kashmir, who has been deemed by many as the next big thing in Indian cricket, produced an absolutely stunning yorker in the 14th over to rattle Wriddhiman Saha’s stumps. Saha was batting on 68 and was looking in great touch but Malik outdid him with his sensational pace.
It was a brilliant yorker from the youngster who clocked a stunning 153 kmph which rocked Saha’s stumps to send him packing. It was a lightning-fast yorker and Saha was a tad bit slow in bringing his bat down as Malik bagged his third wicket in the game.
