Umran Malik is a cricketer who remains a Sinosaur through the making and competition of the entire five-match T20I series against South Africa. Cricket fans are longing to see him make his debut in India after his impressive performance in IPL 2022, and among many veterans and experts supporting him in India’s T20 World Cup squad. However, India supported their first choice players throughout the series, keeping their XI unchanged when Umran warmed up the bench. Despite the wait, former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan has filed a case for Umran’s World Cup selection.
India have named an 18-man squad for the T20I series against South Africa and Umran, who got his first call after an impressive performance in IPL 2022. Even if they don’t get a match in the series, the selectors are retained. India will play two T20Is later this month on their tour of Ireland.

Talking to Star Sports about his chances of being selected for India’s T20 World Cup squad, Irfan said: “He hasn’t played yet; he hasn’t debuted yet. , Don’t let him aside.
“We never had a bowler bowling at 150 km / h; we’ve got it now, so take them carefully for a long time. You have to see what their longevity is, how long their fitness takes them.”
The legendary all-rounder praised the youngster for his unique character – his raw speed and urged selectors and team management to keep up with him and take him forward.
“One thing he’s got is the raw speed you have or you don’t have. You can’t teach anyone bowling fast. Whether it’s Irrfan Pathan or the world’s best mentor or coach, you can only make him better.” He said.
“You can do fine-tuning; we have done it; India will make it even better. “
