Umran Malik is the talk of the town as the pacesetter has impressed the cricket club with his pace, coupled with his ability to take wickets. Umran once again caught the attention of the fans when he threw a stunning final in Sunday’s game against the Punjab Kings. He threw over a girl who saw four wickets fall — three wickets and a runout — while SRH managed to beat PBKS for a total of 151. After the close of PBKS’s innings, the cricket club took to Twitter and saluted the youngster for his exploits.
Here’s how Twitter responded:
“This last over from #UmranMalik was surreal. A girl with 3 wickets and a runout. Stuff of dreams! What a tournament Umran will have soon in #IPL2022 Blue jersey,” tweeted former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh.

“Umran Malik’s exciting pace has sent the stumps flying and the Punjab batters to cover. Bhuvaneshwar, Natarajan and Jansen were also great at choking runs despite a blazing knock from Livingstone. SRH’s match to lose from here”, wrote cricket analyst Ayaz Memon.
