NEW DELHI: Umran Malik might be warming the bench in the ODI series against New Zealand as the team management has preferred all-rounder Shardul Thakur over him but the express pacer has been mighty impressive with his sheer pace in his short international career.
Bowling at around 150 clicks consistently, the Jammu and Kashmir speedster has taken the Indian cricket by storm with his raw pace but has struggled with accuracy.

“There’s only one piece of advice I want to give. I don’t think it’s easy to play against the pace that you have. Just that we need to work a little on line and length. If we can get a command over it, we can rule the world.
“You have a lot of power, future is bright. Best wishes for you, hope you do well,” Shami said during a chat with Umran, which has been posted by bcci.tv.

Shami and Siraj generated considerable seam movement to run through the New Zealand’s top-order as the hosts cantered to an eight-wicket win in the second ODI to seal the three-match series in Raipur on Saturday.
When Umran asked how he remains so calm and happy in every match, Shami said “When you are playing for the country, you shouldn’t take pressure on yourself. You should keep trusting your skills. You tend to get carried away when under pressure.
“But, when you keep your cool and keep trusting your skills, you have better opportunity to execute your plans. When you are doing well, then the importance of focussing is more.
“Keep your smile on, it’s white-ball cricket, anybody can get hit. But keep believing in your skill and keep an eye on the pitch and bowl accordingly,” he added.
