SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) pacer Umran Malik has impressed everyone with his sheer pace in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Malik, who was retained by the franchise prior to the IPL auction, is often handcuffed at 150+ kmph. That said, former English captain Michael Vaughan has made an enormous remark about the future of Malik, who comes from Jammu and Kashmir. Vaughan feels the youngster will soon make his international debut, and also urged the BCCI to send the pacer to play County cricket.
“Umran Malik will be playing for India very soon … if I were the @BCCI, I would send him to play some County cricket this summer to help him develop first,” Vaughan tweeted.

Umran was retained by SRH for Rs 4 crore, and has so far picked up three wickets in four games.
SRH made a strong comeback after losing their first two games. The side led by Kane Williamson has won its last two games, and now has four points in as many games.
In their last match, SRH defeated Gujarat Titans (GT) by 8 wickets.
After first being put in bats, GT placed a total of 162 for seven, on the back of skipper Hardik Pandya’s shot of 50 off 42 balls.
In response, SRH chased down the goal with eight wickets and five balls to spare.
Williamson scored a nice 57, while Abhishek Sharma and Nicholas Pooran also missed handy cameos of 42 and 34.
SRH will now play against KKR in their next match on Friday 15 April.
