Glenn McGrath on Umran Malik: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) fast bowler Umran Malik impressed with his pace in the IPL 2022 season. Now former Australia fast bowler Glenn McGrath has made a big statement. This great fast bowler said that Umran Malik will have to work on his speed as well as control. He further said that if Umran Malik gets this, he is ready to play in any team in the world. The former kangaroo fast bowler said that speed is important as a fast bowler, but at the same time it is necessary to work on control.
‘It’s important to work on speed with good control’
Earlier, Umran Malik was retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) before the IPL mega auction 2022. In the current season, Umran Malik is very much in the news due to his speed. The biggest feature of this fast bowler is his speed. In fact, Umran Malik has bowled at a speed of 150 kmph in almost every match. Glenn McGrath has also advised Umran Malik to work on his fitness. He said that after 2-3 seasons your speed will be revealed to the batsmen. Then maybe you can’t hurt them at your own pace. Therefore, it is necessary to work on good control along with speed.
‘Umran Malik has to work on fitness’
“When you throw a ball at 150km / h, there’s a lot of pressure on the body,” said Glenn McGrath. So you have to work on the body and fitness off the field. It takes hard work to consistently perform well in international cricket. “I have seen many bowlers who have found a place in the national team because of their performances in the IPL,” he said. But he did not do well for a long time because he did not work hard. He also gave the example of Indian fast bowler Jaspreet Bumrah. He said that he got a place in the Indian team after a good performance in the IPL. Since then he has consistently done well with his hard work. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) fast bowler Umran Malik has taken 15 wickets in 11 matches so far this season. Meanwhile, Malik’s average is 24.
