Umran Malik picked three wickets for 23 runs during SunRisers Hyderabad’s (SRH) Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 game against Mumbai Indians (MI) on Tuesday. His casualties included Ishan Kishan, Daniel Sams, and Tilak Varma.

The excusal of Kishan, who was batting on 43, showed that the left-handed opener is helpless against high speed, felt Matthew Hayden, former Australian batter. Kishan tumbled to a full-length ball from Malik that he was unable to hit clearly and was gotten splendidly by Priyam Garg, who ran in reverse, at mid-on.

Matthew Hayden Explains How Umran Malik Got An Edge Over Under Pressure Ishan Kishan

“It’s not just the unknown players. Ishan Kishan tonight was exposed through high-quality fast bowling. And, that’s a worry because once you get to the highest levels, where you are going to be playing a lot more of that type of bowling.

140s-150s are always going to be there, especially if you have a little bit of bounce in the wicket as well,” Matthew Hayden said in the post-match show on Star Sports.

“I love his (Malik’s) raw pace. He is so exciting. The way that he scared him. I mean the ball before that was a bouncer, and then he sensed that automatically Ishan was under pressure and that’s (the shot with which Kishan was caught out) an under pressure shot.

That’s a pressure shot that comes with the fact he also has 40 runs on board and now MI are in a good position. Heat on the ball, pressure, wicket.”
