Pacer Umran Malik is all set to make his India debut in the first T20I against Ireland on Sunday, June 26 in Dublin (Malahide). He received his maiden India call-up earlier this year for the T20I series against South Africa at home. However, could not get a game in the series. Umran’s raw, fierce pace and the ability to consistently clock 150 kmph, earned him many accolades from former cricketers.

On Sunday, before the toss of the first T20I, the youngster received his T20I cap from veteran Indian pacer Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. He will become the 98th player to represent India in the T20I format. The Board of Control for Cricket in India took to its social media handles, to announce Umran Malik’s debut.

Umran Malik grabbed the headlines during the Indian Premier League 2022 season. He troubled the batters with his raw pace in the tournament. The youngster won the ‘Emerging Player of the Year’ award for his outstanding performance. In fourteen matches, he took 22 wickets at an average of 20.18, with a five and a four-wicket haul to his name. After his fantastic performance, many called for his inclusion in the Indian team.

Let’s take a look at how fans reacted to Umran Malik making his T20I debut:
