India's Jammu and Kashmir fast bowler Umran Malik has made his debut in the latest edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). He threw the ball at a speed of 150 kilometres per hour and made a lot of noise. The pacer has taken 22 wickets in 14 matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL. From then on, discussions started to take him to the national team, and he also got the call to the national team squad. However, this time Umran is getting a good idea of ​​what international cricket is all about.

Umran made his international debut in the first T20 match of the series against Ireland. He could not make his debut colourful. Although he got a chance to bowl only one over in the first match, he has given 14 runs and did not get any wickets. He made 42 runs to get 1 wicket in the next match. The last time he had the opportunity to play a third T20 match was against England. It is as if Umran has given runs with both hands. He took only one wicket for 56 runs in 4 overs. However, Umran was considered the future star of India's pace attack.

Although the start of Umran's international cricket was not colourful, the confidence of the captain is still on his shoulders. Indian captain Rohit Sharma wants to have confidence in Malik's ability. Besides, it was clear in his language that the captain would give him more opportunities. Rohit said, ''He has shown us how much his skills are. Now he has to adapt to the pressure of international cricket. We are also looking at that. He is a great talent, no doubt about it. We want to be by his side. Whatever he does on the field, we want to give him confidence. ''

"We had to see if the boys could take the pressure off 4 overs. It's not just a matter of one person; it's a whole bowling attack. So far, everything is good. We want the boys to improve in every match. Today was a great lesson for us. There is a lot to learn from the match. "
