“Shown Significant Advances Since IPL”: India Pacer is praised by Wasim Jaffe

After putting in a great performance in the IPL 2022 with Sunrisers Hyderabad, Umran won the national jersey and took seven wickets against Sri Lanka.

India won the third and final T20I match against Sri Lanka by 91 runs on Saturday. After putting up a massive total of 228/5 thanks to Suryakumar Yadav’s unbeaten 112-run innings, the hosts excelled with the bat and defeated Sri Lanka by 137 runs.

The Hardik Pandya-led team won the three-match T20I series 2-1 with this victory. Umran Malik, who wore the national jersey after putting in an outstanding performance in the IPL 2022 with Sunrisers Hyderabad, claimed a total of seven wickets in the three-match series against Sri Lanka.

His blistering pace left everyone in awe throughout the entire series. Wasim Jaffer, a former India batter, praised the 23-year-old cricketer, stating that he has improved greatly since the IPL and has also worked on his line and length.

I thought he had made significant progress. Since I saw him play in the IPL, I assumed that due to his lack of variations and slower pitches, he would always be expensive in this format.

On ESPNCricinfo, Jaffer stated, “When you bowl at 145-150 clicks, you sometimes have to beat the batters with the lack of pace as well.”

“Anything that comes with pace is doomed because the batters are intelligent enough to utilize that pace. However, his lengths and line have significantly improved.

Additionally, he has the ability to take wickets. In the games, he has been expensive, but he has taken important wickets. Therefore, he has made significant progress since I saw him play in the IPL,” he added.

In the third T20I, India defeated Sri Lanka by 91 runs to secure a memorable series victory in Rajkot on Saturday. Suryakumar showed his unparalleled superiority in the shortest format once more with a scintillating hundred.

For his third T20I century, Surya hit a sensational 112 not out in 51 balls. He helped India reach an impressive 228 for five, making it easier for his bowlers.

He scored his third century in the format, toying with the Sri Lankan bowlers throughout by hitting fours and maximums at will and in his trademark manner all over the field. After that, the Indian bowlers took control, knocking Sri Lanka out for 137 to win the series 2-1.
