Ahead of the second T20I, former India captain Kapil Dev gave a big piece of advice to Umran Malik, in which he asked Umran to put himself in a good environment for two-three years. “I am very happy with his selection. But it is too early… you have to give him at least two-three years at this level. We hold high praise for a player, then he would disappear after a year. There is… but there is no dearth of talent,” Kapil Dev said on Uncut YouTube channel.
“I want Umran to put himself in a good environment and continue working hard at the same pace. Seeing his potential, I don’t think he is lacking in anything. He needs to develop a great mindset to move forward.” Need, and also need advice. Watch footage of good bowlers and their bowling.”
Umran got India’s first call-up after the illustrious IPL 2022, where he emerged as the fastest Indian bowler in the cash-rich league, taking 24 wickets in 14 matches. He was the fourth highest wicket taker of the season. Interestingly, Umran was retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad ahead of the IPL 2022 auction.
“He bowls fast and takes wickets too. We have seen players who can bowl fast but can’t take wickets. This youngster has done both. Maybe that’s why he got the call-up so early. IPL has opened The door to the national team for many players. But we have to give them two-three years at the international level.”
