A former Pakistan fast bowler recently landed himself in hot water after making a comment against Virat Kohli. At the same time, he refused to back down, and his comment about Umran Malik is now being debated.
Umran Malik has carved up a new persona for himself in the year since IPL 2022. Along with his pace, the world is beginning to appreciate his wicket-taking skills. This is why, since his international debut in June 2022, Umran has appeared in 8-8 ODIs and T20 Internationals for India. His participation in Team India’s white ball team is gradually being secured. Team India’s management is not going to leave any stone unturned in nurturing him. The most notable aspect of his bowling is his speed. Despite the fact that numerous fast bowlers arrived to India, this level of raw speed was never discovered.
But, with the addition of Umran Malik, Team India now has a weapon whose pace might terrify the front batsmen. He can bowl at a consistent pace of 145 to 150 kilometres per hour. He has captured 13 ODI and 11 T20 wickets for India so far. During the Sri Lanka series, he also set an international record by throwing the ball at the fastest speed of 156 kmph for India. Whereas Dale Steyn, Wasim Akram, and Brett Lee have become fans of his bowling, a former Pakistan fast bowler has slammed him. Former Pakistan cricketer Sohail Khan recently detailed an event involving Virat Kohli, which catapulted him into the spotlight. He has now made a remark on Umran.
Sohail Khan stated in a podcast that if you think of 150-155 kmph bowlers, he can name 12 to 15 guys that now play tape-ball cricket. If you go to the trials of Lahore Qalandars in the PSL, you will see several guys like this. There are many people like him (Umran Malik). We’re swamped with domestic cricket. While approaching his top speed, Sohail stated that no human being could break Akhtar’s record. Only the bowling machine has the potential to beat his record.
Sohail had already discussed the comments made concerning Virat Kohli. He narrated a tale about Virat on this episode. It was during a match between India and Pakistan that Virat and Sohail exchanged some words.
Sohail informed Virat at the time that his father used to play Test cricket when he was under-19. Following this comment, Sohail became embroiled in controversy. This is due to Virat Kohli’s participation in the Under-19 World Cup in 2006-07. On January 30, 2008, Sohail Khan made his Test debut for Pakistan. In August of the same year, Virat made his Test debut. Sohail was mocked on social media for making these stats up.
