Umran was retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad at 4 crore ahead of IPL 2022 and it turned out out to be a good decision as the youngster did quite well for them. Notably, the 22-year-old had made his debut in IPL 2021.

Umran’s heroics in the IPL already earned him the maiden call-up to the Indian team for the upcoming South Africa series. He became just the second J&K cricketer to make it to the international cricket after Parvez Rasool.

Umran hails from Gujjar Nagar area of Jammu and has been centre of attraction for J&K cricket fans in this year’s IPL.
