Abdul Samad and Umran Malik are two of the rising stars in the Sunrisers Hyderabad camp, and both players have been included in Jammu and Kashmir squad for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Abdul Samad has been named the vice-captain of the side, and it is a significant increase in the role played by him for the side while Umran Malik’s stint in the T20 Worldcup for India as a net bowler will be very useful.

Abdul Samad has always been believed to have some extraordinary six-hitting skills, and he has shown just glimpses of his ability in the IPL. Umran Malik, on the other hand, has some serious pace in his armory, and he bowled the quickest delivery in the IPL 2021 as well. He came in as a replacement for the injured T Natrajan in the Sunriser Hyderabad camp and was very impressive immediately.
