Umran Malik Hits Mayank Agarwal on Ribs With Fiery Delivery Post Banter With Him in First Innings

Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer Imran Malik’s fiery delivery hit Punjab Kings captain Mayank Agarwal on the ribs in the last match of the IPL 2022 league stage. Imran received his first call-up in India on Sunday after an impressive display of the season. India’s fastest player in the cash-rich league has impressed many this season with his fierce bowling.

During the last ball of the first rounds, Imran out for the racket after Bhuvneshwar Kumar ran out, PBKS captain Mayank greeted the 22-year-old with some banter as he entered the grounds. The Jammu and Kashmir player takes the free kick and gets a castle but takes a round which is added to the extras category (Pay).

However, Imran Mayank greeted with his own style of fiery bowling. The PBKS skipper was facing his first delivery and the SRH pacer hit him with a short angle inward and hit his ribs.

Punjab Kings, on the other hand, showed plenty of discipline against the frustrated Sunrisers of Hyderabad, as they were handed a 157-8 in an unimportant IPL League final here on Sunday.

Arshdeep Singh (0/25 in 4 overs) celebrated his first call-up to India with another spell of a little stinginess, but his state teammate Harpreet Brar (3/26 in 4 overs) was the bowler’s pick with wicket-makers Priam Garg, Rahul Tripathi and Aiden Markram.

With four playoffs already scheduled for Saturday, there was little academic interest left in the game and the Orange Army actually looked tense and more like going through the motions while hitting before ramping up their scores on the last few shots.

SRH’s best hitter of the season, Abhishek Sharma (43 of 32 balls) started again but should have turned it into a big one that didn’t happen.

Over 50 runs have come in the last four as Nathan Ellis (3/40 in 4 overs) missed the length despite a few straight points he earned on the bargain.

Ellis delivered a good triple which Bhuvneshwar Kumar avoided only to get the next delivery to run out.
