Former Australian fast bowler, Brett Lee, has divulged the direction he has for Umran Malik, who is in a threatening form this season. The 22-year-old managed to hold captivate several cricket fans. Quite a few bowlers in the world have managed to bowl at the pace he has been consistently bowling, so far. Umran Malik is a consistent performer for the SRH franchise who has wreaked havoc against the opponents from his pace that passes by a batsman within a blink of an eye. The Kashmiri pacer was retained by the SRH and is also a leading contestant to be a part of the Indian team.

“That is really quick, trust me. I know what it is like to bowl over 150kph. It hurts. s the approach, the build-up of speed and then it takes off. That is what makes a good fast bowler,” said the former Australian pacer who once terrorized the opponent with his blows on wickets and body at 150 kph.

“The reason why it is so exciting is that it is so hard to do. It is such a natural talent. I have not met this guy yet but I promise you that at school he was a fast runner,” Lee concluded. Umran has taken 21 wickets in 13 matches so far this season. He is a key player for the Sunrisers Hyderabad and is being considered a valuable addition to the World cup squad that will travel to Australia in the upcoming months.
