Mohammad Shami on Umran Malik: Sunrisers Hyderabad’s young fast bowler Umran Malik has driven everyone crazy with his speed. He took 15 wickets in the first eight matches. With five wickets against Gujarat Titans. However, as he has not taken a single wicket in the last three matches, critics have questioned whether the young Jammu pacer should be included in the Indian squad. On which Gujarat fast bowler Mohammad Shamin has said that it will take some more time for him to mature.
‘They’ll need more time’
“I agree he has speed, but personally I’m not a big fan of him,” Shami said. I believe that if you can bowl at 140kmph and swing the ball on both sides, it is enough to hurt the batsmen. He has incredible speed but needs some more time to mature.
‘Mohsin Khan impressed’
Apart from Malik, Lucknow Super Giants fast bowler Mohsin Khan has caught the attention of cricket fans with his ability to swing the new ball and be profitable, taking 10 wickets in six matches.
He said Mohsin Khan used to practice with me. He is a young and strong bowler but he has to focus on good bowling just like you and be good physically and mentally.
‘Yash Dayal is also a good bowler’
About Dayal, Shami said, “In Gujarat, fast bowler Yash Dayal has taken nine wickets in five matches. Yash Dayal is very short and is good at swinging the ball on both sides. I didn’t have much time to work with him, but from what I’ve seen him, he’s good at swinging the ball in both directions.
With the rise of young Indian fast bowlers in IPL 2022, the country’s fast bowling talent has come to prominence. This has affected Shami. But at the same time, the senior pacer has asked the young pacers to play more and more matches in order to excel in the future.
