Virender Sehwag criticizes Umran Malik of SRH, After a disappointing IPL season
Umran Malik, who was feeling unwell, was started by the Sunrisers in the game against MI as one of a few changes to their starting lineup.
Umran finished the IPL 2023 season with just five wickets in eight games. ”Despite having worked with Steyn for so long”. After a disappointing IPL 2023, Sehwag brutally beats Umran Malik.
Aiden Markram, the captain of SRH, came under fire in the team’s previous match against RCB. When he admitted he didn’t know why Umran wasn’t included in the playing XIs. Up to that point, the pacer had made seven appearances for the team.
However, the speedster was ineffective in the SRH’s final season match as well, giving up 41 runs in three overs. Former India opener Virender Sehwag criticized the Indian pacer. Claiming that despite working with Dale Steyn for a while.
Sehwag mentioned Umran as he critiqued SRH’s bowling performance. ” You can only win by fighting them off. Fine leg, square leg and deep midwicket were all held by (Markram)”.
”He requested that the bowler bowl a back-of-the-length delivery. However, the batters were flawless. The batsmen smashed them all over the park, but SRH took the chance,” Sehwag said to Cricbuzz.
“The bowlers weren’t very good. A long-on and long-off could have been kept by the crew at the captain’s request. You were unable to completely stop the flow of runs, which was the issue”.
” If it had been a South African pacer, I might have understood why he wouldn’t want to bowl too full. However, He keeps shifting his length, which is a problem. The experience is still lacking for him”.
”Despite possibly having spent a lot of time working with Dale Steyn, he doesn’t seem to understand how long he is. He’s making the same errors he did last year despite learning from Steyn for such a long time and working with him”, Sehwag said
