IND vs NZ: 3 Indian Players Who Didn’t Deserve A Spot In India Squad For New Zealand T20Is
3. Umran Malik
Umran Malik is the first player on this list. The right-arm pacer has got a chance in the IND vs NZ T20I series. Umran Malik is among the rarest Indian pacers who can bowl 150+ kph deliveries. However, he has failed to come up with a good show in 3 games.
Malik has played 2 T20I games against Ireland and 1 against England. In 2 games, he registered an economy of 14.0+. In 1 match, he held an economy of 10.50. Although he has the pace advantage with him, he is a highly expensive pacer in the shortest format.
