The 22-year-old Jammu and Kashmir express pacer Umran Malik had a forgettable day on the field in the third and final match of the three-match T20I series against Jos Buttler-led England National Cricket Team at the Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Sunday, July 10.
India National Cricket Team made four huge changes to the playing XI in the third T20I after winning the first two games in a dominant fashion and getting an unassailable lead of 2-0.
Leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi, pacer Avesh Khan, pacer Umran Malik and batter Shreyas Iyer replaced leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, pacer Jasprit Bumrah and all-rounder Hardik Pandya in the playing XI.
Meanwhile, Umran started off poorly in the Nottingham T20I against England, leaking 17 runs in his first over. In his second over he gave away 10 runs and picked the wicket of opening batsman Jason Roy. In his third and fourth over, the express pacer gave away 14 and 17 runs
Umran Malik ended his 4-over spell with the bowling figures of 4-0-56-1, which is the third most expensive figures ever for an India National Cricket Team bowler in T20I cricket.
Most runs conceded by an Indian bowler in T20Is:
0/64 – Chahal, 2018
0/57 – Joginder Sharma, 2007
1/56 – Deepak Chahar, 2019
1/56 – Umran Malik, 2022
Notably, Umran Malik made his T20I debut in the first match of the two-match T20I series against the Ireland National Cricket Team in Dublin and he bowled a poor first over, as a result, he was given only one over in the match by the stand-in captain Hardik Pandya. In his second T20 International game, he picked one wicket and gave away 42 runs.
Overall in the three T20 International games, he has played, the pacer has managed to pick only two wickets at an average of 56.00, an economy of 12.44, and a strike rate of 27.0.
Here’s How Twitter Reacted To Umran Malik’s Bowling Performance In 3rd T20I vs England:
Today it's Umran Malik on his radar. Sanju bro he is Umraaaan not UmRun (I guess).
Screwing up names since eternity.

No, Umran Malik is not ready for international cricket! Not until he develops a few variations. Wonder what the bowling coach's up to. Pace on every delivery won't work in T20s. #ENGvIND

Umran Malik ran towards bathroom when he came to know he has to bowl to Livi in the 20th over, Rohit had to pull him back

Paaji , i think exposing Umran Malik to international Circuit so soon was not needed , they could've let him play domestics first , get him to have some control on his line and lengths and then bring into the internationals.

Umran Malik cannot retain his place in the playing XI with this economy rate.
This will only send him back to the bench..

Umran Malik is a great talent except he goes for too many runs🤐🤐 pic.twitter.com/F3g4HDDCDI

Umran Malik right now, ain’t it. Like maybe on some hard decks you could use him, just maybe. Otherwise literally no point calling him up.
Concedes way too many runs. All over the place with his line and length. Lots of improvement needed.

Maiden fifty for Umran Malik, more to come if he plays 👊

Umran Malik the run machine 🔥.
If he thinks the pace is only his strength today will repeat in his entire career.
He has to vary pace to become more deadly.#ENGvsIND #INDvsENG #RohitSharma𓃵 #HardikPandya

Umran Malik is just an overglorified Ashok Dinda.

Umran Malik is the most overrated fast bowler in current times. No control on line & length. Arshdeep is better option#INDvsENG
— Common Man (@CommonM24106139) July 10, 2022
Shame that Umran Malik is playing over someone like Arshdeep. Should've been in the squad
