Umran Malik Special StoryIPL 2022 Fastest Boweler: From being promoted to the senior squad after T Natarajan suffered an injury, Umran Malik made his debut against Kolkata Knight Riders.

He was an instant hit, clocking 150 kph deliveries in a row. He was retained by SRH and he repaid the faith.

Nurtured by SRH’s star-studded coaching line-up, Umran has become a star.

Under the guidance of Dale Steyn and Tom Moody, Umran grew wings, bowling at 157 Kph to shatter Indian fast bowling records.

While he lacked accuracy last year and did not have yorkers in his arsenal, he added that weapon after working with Dale Steyn.

It resulted in a unique record of bowling a maiden in the last over and bagging three wickets. While everyone knows about his skills and how fast he bowls, not many know about him. InsideSport sheds some light on Umran Malik.

India Squad for SA: Check Umran Malik’s FAMILY?

Umran Malik was born to Abdul Rashid and Seema Malik on November 22, 1999.

His father is a fruit seller in Jammu. He was spotted by a J&K player who helped him get in touch with coach Randhir Singh Manhas. Umran went on to be picked in U19 trials in Jammu and later picked by J&K team.

But it was Irfan Pathan under whom, he began to flourish. Irfan and Indian player Parvez Rasool groomed a young Umran.

“Some of the junior players in our side used to be afraid to face him. They feared they would get hit. He had raw pace, which caught everyone’s eye,” Rasool told Indian Express

“You could make out his pace from the way the wicket-keeper used to collect his deliveries. He was a natural fast bowler. Like any young kid, he loved to hit batsmen, hit them on their thigh pads. He was a touch raw, he had a high jump while landing, so we worked on it,’’ Irfan Pathan added.
