India’s rising sensation, Umran Malik made his debut in the T20 international series against Ireland. He played both the T20 internationals in the series but failed to hit the straps. In two matches, he could manage to pick a solitary wicket at an average of 56. He was, however, included in India’s squad for the T20I series against England. 

Malik wasn’t included in the first two T20I internationals but was given a chance in the third game. He ended up being the most expensive bowler for India, conceding 56 runs in 4 overs. Selectors didn’t pick Malik in the T20I series against West Indies.

However, Malik is seeing this as an opportunity to make a comeback to India’s side for the Asia Cup. The Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer will be playing in Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association’s Multi-Day Cup. Apparently, Abdul Samad will also take part in the competition. 

Given that there is no domestic cricket in the next few months, Umran Malik has turned to state-level cricket to showcase his mettle. He would be hopeful of delivering some notable performances and making his case for the Asia Cup 2022. 

Recently, Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma stated that Umran Malik is one of those that the team management would look to give more chances. 

“He is very much in our plans, it is just trying to give him that understanding as to what the team requires from him as well. Yes, there will be times where we want to try out a few guys and Umran is definitely one of those guys, keeping one eye on the World Cup, we want to see what he has to offer for us,” Rohit Sharma said ahead of T20I series against England.
