With his raw pace and extraordinary talent, Umran Malik has been successful in impressive South Africa’s seamer Anrich Nortje. Notably, Nortje is currently one of the fastest pacers in world cricket. 

Speaking about Umran, Anrich mentioned that the youngster will soon get a chance to don the Indian jersey. The South African Stalwart advised the seamer to work on the quality of the ball along with its pace. The pacer believes that if a bowler is getting hit for boundaries then there is no meaning of how fast he bowls. 

“I am confident that Umran will soon become one of India’s crucial players. Luck will be required. But, most significantly, it’s about the value of what you deliver. We’ve noticed that the quickest deliveries that are being given are going for boundaries. It makes no difference how fast it is delivered. The pace isn’t the only factor to consider,”

Nortje told PTI.

“It was all about execution quality. And I feel he is getting better at controlling his pace. Umran seems to be in excellent hands at Sunrisers Hyderabad, where he is coached by Dale Steyn. He is surrounded by experienced and skilled players, therefore he will undoubtedly develop,”

the Proteas player added. 

Further in the interaction, Anrich Nortje also spoke about his individual performance in the Indian Premier League 2022. The seamer missed the initial few games due to an injury. He played his first IPL 2022 match on April 07 against LSG. However, the outing didn’t go as per the plan as he conceded 35 runs in 2.2 overs and ended up suffering from an injury again.


However, this time the seamer has made a comeback to the team after regaining his 100 percent fitness. He is looking in good touch and DC will hope for a good performance as they will play against Punjab Kings on Monday. 

“It’s been a good amount of time at home, but it’s fantastic to be back somewhere on the ground with the guys.” I needed a break at the beginning (of my injury), but I ended up being quite confused towards the conclusion. It’s a great feeling to be back out there and attempt to bowl at the level I was,”

Nortje concluded.
