CricketWATCH: When Umran Malik bowls, stumps fly

Srinagar: J&K’s pace sensation Umran Malik has taken Cricket World by storm owing to his extreme pace and making stumps fly.

On Saturday, Team India sealed series win over Sri Lanka in the T20I’s. In the 3rd T20 India beat Lanka by 91 runs.

Batting first India scored 228/5 in 20 overs, thanks to Suryakumar Yadav’s incredible unbeaten knock of 112 off just 51 deliveries. In reply Sri Lanka folded on 137 as Arshdeep Singh picked three wickets, while Hardik Pandya, Umran Malik, and Yuzvendra Chahal picked two each.

For India , it was Umran again who caught the attention of everyone as the pacer made stumps fly.

Umran picked important wickets of Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana in the innings; and the speedster’s fierce pace was on display yet again as he sent the stumps flying with a 146kph delivery that sent Theekshana back in the dugout.

Umran, brought in for his third over, knocked Theekshana’s stumps on his third delivery. Theekshana backed away and threw his bat at the length ball, more in hope of connecting with the delivery rather than playing an assertive shot. The Sri Lanka batter reacted late and missed the line completely, as the ball smashed the off stump.

Umran eventually ended with figures of 2/31 in three overs; he ended the series with seven wickets to his name in three matches.

During the first T20, the right-arm pacer also created the record for the fastest delivery by an Indian bowler, as he clocked 155kph to dismiss Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka.

India will return to action in the ODI series that begins January 10; the series will see the return of India’s big three – Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul, with Rohit to lead the side.
