New Delhi: Umran Malik is a name that remains the center of attraction in the Indian Premier League these days. Surprising everyone with his speed, Umran did something in the match against Kolkata that his idol and South African fast bowler Dale Steyn had to give up his seat. In fact, when the Kolkata team was batting and captain Shreyas Iyer and Nitish Rana were in good form, Kane Williamson gave the ball to Umran. This was the 10th over of Kolkata’s innings. Captain Iyer got tired of hitting four sixes in front of Umran’s yorker on the last ball. He was bowled by Umran for 28 runs.
Seeing this, Dale Steyn, sitting in the dugout, jumped with joy and left his chair and slapped Muttiah Muralitharan on the back. This video of him is making a lot of noise on social media. Let us tell you that Umran considers Dale Steyn as his inspiration and is currently taking training from Hyderabad under his supervision. Recently, Stein praised Malik saying that he has a lot of talent.
Dale Steyn is not the only fan of Malik’s speed. Former head coach Ravi Shastri has also praised him. “When Malik is bowling, you can’t see his ball while watching the match on TV.
Hyderabad won the match by 7 wickets and scored the winning hat-trick of the season. However, in this match, Malik took 2 wickets for 27 runs in 4 overs. Earlier, former England captain Michael Van Malik had praised him. He even said that he will soon be seen playing for India.
