Umran Malik has come back as an improved bowler in IPL 2022. The SunRisers Hyderabad pacer is learning on the go from Dale Steyn who is their camp as a coach, the South African too is very excited about the opportunity to work with a talent like Umran and believes that he could play for India very soon.
While Steyn was seen celebrating Umran's success in an earlier match against Kolkata Knight Riders when the pacer had clean bowled the opposition skipper Shreyas Iyer, during Hyderabad's match against Gujarat Titans at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Wednesday, Umran celebrated the wicket of Shubman Gill like Dale Steyn. Gill departed for 22 but only after a 69-run opening stand with Wriddhiman Saha.
The video of Umran's celebration has surfaced on social media.
Have a look at it here:
Earlier Umran while speaking about how he plans for different oppositions said that it was an honour to work with one of the greats in Steyn.
"I try to work plans for different batsmen, whether it's slower balls, yorkers or bouncers. Rest is up to God how the plans work or not. The advice (from Steyn) is to have plans and to execute them well. It's an honour to work with a legend like him," the fast bowler from Jammu and Kashmir was quoted as saying.
"I talk a lot to Bhuvi Bhai (Bhuvneshwar), Nattu (Natarajan) and Jansen. They are all such great bowlers and they help on what to do, and not to do," he added.
