Sunrisers Hyderabad’s star fast bowler Umran Malik has been in talks lately for various reasons. The young fast bowler was sidelined by his franchise this year after a couple of not-so-great spells. After being out for almost the entire second leg of the competition, Umran Malik finally made it to the playing XI in their final game of this year. Unfortunately, the return wasn’t the best. Now, former Indian opener Virender Sehwag has expressed his disappointment over the bowler’s performance.

In the SRH vs MI match, Umran Malik was one of the most expensive bowlers in the side with an economy of 13.67 in merely 3 overs. Analyzing the bowler’s mistakes, Virender Sehwag mentioned that the main issue was with his length. He further went on to add that the fast bowler will have to work extremely hard with the coach Dale Steyn. In the same discussion, Manoj Twitter spoke about Aiden Markram’s captaincy and use of Umran Malik.

“Umran Malik’s problem is that he keeps shuffling his length. He doesn’t have the experience yet. He might have worked a lot with Dale Steyn, but he hasn’t really got the idea of his length. Despite working with Steyn for so long and learning under him, he’s doing the same mistakes that he did last year,” Virender Sehwag said. Meanwhile, adding to it, Manoj Tiwari said, “Umran didn’t play enough games too. So it’s difficult to say if he was rusty. But when your captain says at the toss that even he doesn’t have an idea of what’s going on with your selection, it is bound to hurt your self-confidence.”

Manoj Tiwari’s comments come after the news of rifts between Umran Malik and the franchise broke out. During an interaction, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Aiden Markram was questioned about the non-selection of Umran Malik to which he responded by stating that he was unaware of it. After a failed season, Markram’s captaincy has also come under scrutiny as the team finished the season at the bottom. Before entering into the auctions next year, the team management will have to rethink their strategies and then take a call on what changes should be made.
