Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) pacer Umran Malik smashed the stumps of Gujarat Titans (GT) opener, Shubman Gill, during their game at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday.
Umran has been on fire in the IPL 2022 season, setting the stage abuzz with his lethal pace. He put it into use once again as he provided the breakthrough that SRH was looking for.
GT openers, Gill and Wriddhiman Shaa had provided a blazing start for their team in the steep run chase of 196. Saha in particular looked like a treat, blazing away to 41 off just 20 balls.
Gill at the other end was much more sedate and was scoring at run-a-ball. His knock was brought to an end by a pacy delivery from Umran. Gill looked to make room to cut but was beaten by Umran’s sheer pace and the off-stump was uprooted.
