Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) fast bowler, Umran Malik has been bowling with ferocious pace in the ongoing IPL 2022, and he impressed one and all when he rattled the stumps of both the Gujarat Titans (GT ) openers, Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha during their game on Wednesday (April 27). It was a 144 kph length ball by Umran and Gill wanted to make some room to play over offside before it hit the off-stump. On the other hand, it was a yorker at 152 kph for Saha.

GT got off to a decent start after coming to chase a daunting score of 196 against SRH in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 contest on Wednesday (April 27) at the Wankhede Stadium. They were 68/0 at the end of seven overs, with Wriddhiman Saha batting on 41 off 20 balls, alongside Shubman Gill, who was hardly maintaining a strike rate of 100.

SRH skipper Kane Willamson brought Umran Malik into the attack in the eighth over. Umran has been superb so far in the ongoing IPL 2022 with sheer pace. He was impressed again immediately and started bowling over 140 kph+ rapidly. The fourth ball clocked 144 kph, and it pitched at a good length.

Gill made room to play it over cover region, but got beaten by the pace. The ball rattled the off stump, and Gill’s stay ended after scoring 22 off 24 balls. GT, after Gill’s departure, was reduced to 73/1 at the end of eight overs. Again in the 14th over when a partnership was building between Wriddhiman Saha and David Miller, Williamson brought back Umran Malik.

Umran Malik didn’t disappoint this time as well, as he bowled a fiery yorker at 152+ kph on the second ball of the over and Saha had no answer to it and eventually, his stumps were rattled as a result, GT was reeling at 122/3.
