Mumbai. Sunrisers Hyderabad fast bowler Umran Malik is in the headlines due to his speed in IPL 2022. Due to his speed, he has attracted the attention of many cricket legends. 22-year-old Umran broke his own record a few days ago by becoming the first Indian bowler to bowl the fastest delivery in the IPL. Then he bowled the ball against Delhi Capitals at a speed of 157 kmph. But former India coach Ravi Shastri says that this record of Umran does not matter in T20 cricket. Today in the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Umran conceded 25 runs in the bowling of 2 overs.
Talking to Star Sports, Ravi Shastri said, “He will play for India very soon. His speed is good. But you have to keep this in mind and bowl in the right areas to take wickets. Minimize the effort to surprise the batsman. Such thoughts should go through your mind.” Ravi Shastri further said, “The pitches will become more batting friendly in the coming times. I say everywhere in the media that the speed of 156-157 doesn’t matter in the T20 format. You have to bowl in the right areas.”
