In the first T20 match held in Mumbai, Umran created a record by bowling at a speed of 155 km per hour. Although he did not touch the speed of 155 km this time, he took wickets at consecutive intervals.
India lost the second T20 match against Sri Lanka due to poor performance and poor batting by the bowlers. With this, the three-match series was tied at 1-1. In the second match at Pune, India lost to Sri Lanka by 16 runs. First the bowlers gave huge runs, then the batsmen took wickets easily. Apart from the half-centuries of all-rounder Akshar Patel and Suryakumar, no one else did much, so Team India was bound to lose. The performance of the Indian bowlers in this match was once again disappointing. All except Akshar and Chahal gave huge runs. But as usual in this match speedster Umran Malik showed the Lankans with his pace attack. Despite giving huge runs, he took crucial wickets and prevented the tourist team from scoring more. In the first T20 match held in Mumbai, Umran created a record by bowling at a speed of 155 km per hour. Although he did not touch the speed of 155 km this time, he took wickets at consecutive intervals. In the second T20 match at the MCA Stadium, Umran Malik conceded 13 runs in his first over. But in the second over, he performed brilliantly. In the 10th over, Umran bowled Sri Lankan left-handed batsman Bhanuka Rajapaksa off the stumps off his first ball. Rajapakse had no answer to the ball, which was bowled round the wicket at a speed of 147 kilometers. The ball took the edge of the bat and rattled the wickets.
Hasaranga is upset..
Umran didn’t stop there and exploded more in the next over. The speedster dismissed Charit Asalanka with a fine ball and then hit a dizzying ball to Vanindu Hasaranga who came into the crease. The Lankan all-rounder was thrown in the air off stump by the blow. However, Umran could not complete the hat-trick in his last over. Dasun Shanka hits the first ball of the over for a four. He hit a six behind the wicket off the next ball. With another six coming in this over, Lanka managed to make a huge score. However, on a pitch that is a haven for batters, Umran impressed by scoring 48 runs in 4 overs and taking 3 wickets.
ICYM I! @umran_malik_01‘s timber strike to dismiss Bhanuka Rajapaksa 👌 👌
