“When You Order Shoaib Akhtar Online,” Twitter Roasts Umran Malik For Giving 56 Runs In 4 Overs

The young Indian fast bowler Umran Malik who made headlines during the IPL 2022 because of his pace is all over social media at present but for all the wrong reasons. In the league, he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad and bowled at the speed of around 150km/hr or above and in all the matches, he won the prize for the fastest delivery of the match.

Soon, the Indian cricket fans started demanding that the young pacer from Jammu & Kashmir should be a part of the Indian team and the selectors also thought of giving a chance to the youngster by including him in the team for the Ireland tour where India played 2 T20Is.

However in his debut match against Ireland, Umran Malik went for 14 runs in his first over after which the stand-in skipper Hardik Pandya didn’t give him another over. In the second T20I, Umran Malik once again failed to make an impact as he went for 42 runs in his 4 overs and took just one wicket.

The Indian team management once again gave a chance to the young pacer as they included him in the team which played and lost the third and final T20I of the 3-match series against England. As India was leading in the series by 2-0, some big changes were made in the squad as all-rounder Hardik Pandya, pacers Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and spinner Yuzvendra Chahal were replaced by Ravi Bishnoi, Shreyas Iyer, Avesh Khan and Umran Malik.

Umran Malik performed poorly against England in the 3rd T20I as he gave away 56 runs (economy rate – 14) in his 4 overs and took only one wicket. The pace sensation who was making waves during the IPL 2022 for his team SRH was declared unfit for the international cricket by many online users who trolled Umran Malik mercilessly.

With this performance, Umran Malik has secured the third spot in the list of bowlers who have given the most runs in T20 cricket, the first being Yuzvendra Chahal (0/64), second is Joginder Sharma (0/57) while Deepak Chahar and Umran Malik have tied for 1/56.

Many fans now feel that Umran Malik should be sent to play domestic cricket while the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma has stated that Umran Malik is in their scheme of things for the T20 World Cup.
