Umran Malik Bio/Wiki:

Umran Malik is an Indian fast bowler who is known for his fast bowling. He was born on 22 November 1999 in Srinagar, Jammu, and Kashmir. Umran, who was fond of playing cricket since childhood, left his studies in the tenth standard and focused on playing cricket. He used to play cricket in local tournaments held in his hometown. His family also fully supported him in playing cricket and never refused to play.

Umran used to be so engrossed in playing cricket in his childhood that he did not pay attention to the time. Sometimes, his family members had to catch him and remind him, that now there was no need to play more cricket, just eat food. After that, his name started spreading all over Jammu, and the batsmen started getting scared of playing his ball. Due to his fast bowling, people with him started calling him Ghajini.

Initially, when he was young, he used to bat, and then slowly he started bowling. He was famous for his batting in domestic tournaments, he also scored a century. Later he took up the hobby of bowling. After that, he gave the trial of Under-19, after which Randhir Singh Manhas taught and trained him to play. After that, he was selected for Under 23 where he played.

Then he was selected for the Mushtaq Ali Trophy and later also played in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. He performed brilliantly in the Vijay Hazare Trophy which helped him move ahead in his career. Another cricketer from Jammu, Abdul Samad, who was playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL, told SRH’s mentor VVS Laxman about Umran’s bowling. Then he was included in the Sunrisers Hyderabad team as a net bowler.

After joining the IPL, he beat Australian star cricketer David Warner several times with his balls while bowling in the nets, which attracted the attention of the team management. He got a chance to play his IPL debut match against Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2021 after Sunrisers Hyderabad bowler T Natarajan became Covid-positive. In that match, he conceded 27 runs in 4 overs while bowling at 145 kmph.

Although he could not take any wickets in this debut match, but he won the hearts of people with his bowling. In 2022, he is once again in discussions with his fast bowling. He is doing brilliantly in IPL 2022 and the match against Gujarat Titans, he took 5 wickets for 25 runs in 4 overs while bowling for Sunrisers Hyderabad which is his best performance in IPL so far.

He is the second-fastest bowler in the history of the IPL to bowl at a speed of 157 kmph. Before him, Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait bowled the ball at a speed of 157.4 kmph. His only dream is to play for India in international matches.

Ultimately, Umran Malik made his T20 debut on 26 June 2022, playing for India in international matches against Ireland. He made his ODI debut for India in the One Day International against New Zealand at the Eden Park Stadium on 25 November 2022. In his first match, he got the wicket of New Zealand batsman Devon Conway.

Apart from this, Umran holds the record for throwing the fastest ball by an Indian.
