Over the course of its 15-year history, the IPL has provided an ideal platform for numerous deserving youths, one of them is Umran Malik. With his blistering pace and ability to top pick important wickets, the Sunrisers Hyderabad bowler has emerged as the new IPL 2022 cynosure. And, as a result of his outstanding performance in the IPL 2021, he was even selected as a net bowler for the Indian cricket team’s T20 World Cup squad last year. (ENTIRE COVERAGE UNDER IPL 2022)
