Shami, Siraj Advised Me To Make Most Of My Pace- Umran Malik


Guwahati (Assam): Indian pacer Umran Malik, who created a record by bowling at 156 kph in the first ODI against Sri Lanka, said the advice he received from team members Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj was to make most of his pace and he wanted to be as accurate as possible.

Heroics by star batter Virat Kohli and ‘Jammu Express’ Umran Malik outpowered a fighting century by skipper Dasun Shanaka as India defeated Sri Lanka by 67 runs in the first ODI of three-match series at Guwahati on Tuesday. Malik bettered his own record of becoming the fastest Indian pacer. The speedster bowled the delivery in his second over (14th over of the inning) of his first spell.

“I have played six games, I just want to bowl well and in the right areas. The wicket was flat, I spoke with Siraj bhai, Shami bhai, the input was to make the most of my pace. I want to be as accurate as possible,” said Umran in a post-match presentation.

Umran Malik finished as the pick of the bowlers, taking 3/57. India is 1-0 up in the three-match series.

The second ODI will take place on January 12 in Eden Gardens, Kolkata, while the third at Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram.
