Gujarat Titans’ (GT) player Rashid Khan took on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) pacer Marco Jansen to the boundaries in the final over of their match on Wednesday and sealed the deal alongside Rahul Tewatia. They chased down 22 runs from the last six balls to win the match as well. However, after the match, former India cricketer RP Singh suggested that Jansen should have bowled the yorker or the bouncer amid the crunch situation.

He said on Cricbuzz: “You got to bowl yorkers when you are bowling during the death overs, otherwise, it will be very difficult. He did beat Rashid Khan with a slower delivery but you can’t rely on that all the time. He could have also tried a bouncer.”

However, SRH pacer Umran Malik had said in the post-match interview that the experienced duo of Dale Steyn and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have guided him well. And, RP Singh was happy with the guidance and praised the youngster for his valiant performances this season so far as well. Notably, he picked up a fifer in the match and emerged as the pick of the bowlers for his side as well.

“It is good that Umran Malik is trying to learn from the likes of Dale Steyn and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He used different plans for every batter. I believe that when you have that pace, it is important to make the most of it. He used it to his advantage when Pandya came into bat by bowling a short delivery. Bhuvneshwar is a skilful bowler and would have surely helped Malik by guiding him on how to swing the ball at that pace,” RP Singh concluded.
