CricketUmran Malik is predictable, lack variations: Former Pakistan captain

Srinagar: Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has said that Team India’s pace sensation from J&K, Umran Malik is predictable and lack variations.

Umran Malik took three wickets in second T20I against Sri Lanka but conceded 48 runs as India lost the high scoring thriller.

Salman Butt believes that Umran needs to add more variations in his arsenal if he has to succeed in international cricket.

“You get better with experience. He conceded so many runs because he lacked experience. He was in good rhythm, his action is neat. His pace was right up there. The problem was that the batter was experienced, more intelligent, and he used Umran’s pace very well. Umran was very predictable, neither did he bowl yorkers nor the slower ones,” said Salman Butt.

“He saw that the batsman was making room for himself, he could have bowled the yorkers outside the off-stump. He didn’t do that too. So, experience matters. And you won’t get experience while sitting outside. You have to let him play. Because he will take wickets and win you the matches from crunch situations.”
