Ravi Shastri and Zaheer Khan support Umran Malik.

Umran Malik of Jammu and Kashmir will be motivated to make a statement after being left out of the T20 World Cup. He will try to do this by performing well for India on their tour of New Zealand. The three T20Is versus New Zealand are set to feature the 22-year-old in all three, and more crucially, the conditions in Wellington, Mount Maunganui, and Napier will be favorable to the pace.

He is capable of routinely reaching speeds of 150 kph and can pose a threat to the Kiwi batsmen in their own land.

Zaheer Khan, a former speedster for India, thinks that Umran’s pedigree as a pacer will make him even more valuable in New Zealand. Prior to the series, the 44-year-old supported Umran and remarked how the chance may provide the spinner the much-needed experience in international cricket.

“You need a left-arm bowler, someone who can swing the ball, and someone who bowls really quickly. If everything is in one package, that’s ideal, but if not, you should employ variation in your bowling lineup approach and make good use of the various situations.

In a Prime Video interview with media, Zaheer remarked, “Umran has been a really exciting prospect and this sort of exposure is surely going to benefit him. It is about how he takes things ahead if he wants to win the slot consistently.

Ravi Shastri, a former head coach of India, also recalled how India wasted the opportunity to leave Umran Malik off of the T20 World Cup roster. Shastri questioned team India’s selection procedure because he thought there was no alternative for real speed.

“Therefore, imitation of true tempo is impossible. even while defending modest totals Umran now has the chance to take advantage of this, and hopefully he will benefit from the exposure, Shastri said on the same platform.
