IRE VS IND: Umran Malik had a less-than-ideal start to his international career for the side as he managed to pick up only one wicket in his two appearances in the T20I series against Ireland, which India won handily.
Danish Kaneria, a former Pakistani spinner, has recently commented on the emerging Jammu fast bowling phenomenon. Malik had an outstanding IPL 2022, taking 22 wickets for Sunrisers Hyderabad during a dismal campaign for the team while rattling many batters with his lightning-quick pace.
The tearaway pacer was rewarded with a call-up to the national team, but he was absent from the South Africa T20I series. He had his opportunity in the just-finished limited-overs series against Ireland, but he did not perform as well as he had in the IPL.
The 22-year-old pacer had trouble maintaining consistency and frequently dropped off the radar. He still has a long way to go, despite exhibiting steely nerves against Ireland in the final over of the second T20I.
Danish Kaneria, a former cricketer for Pakistan, claimed that making the transition from IPL to international play is difficult since there is so much pressure to do well for your country.
IRE VS IND: In 2nd T20 Ireland Give Good Fight Back With Bat- Danish Kaneria
The former leggie also praised the Ireland team, who performed admirably by playing a fearless brand of cricket. Particularly in the second T20I’s run chase. As they nearly crossed the finish line in pursuit of India’s enormous score of 225. They were on the verge of pulling off a major shock.
According to Kaneria, it can be difficult to strike effective bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar and company, who have established their abilities in the IPL. In T20 cricket, it takes guts to chase down a target of 225.
Ireland played with a great deal of assurance while keeping us amused with their batting. They faced Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, Axar Patel, and Harshal Patel, four excellent Indian spinners. These bowlers are the ones that have excelled in the IPL.
“Umran Malik bowls very fast, but he has a long way to go as he is quite wayward. He will improve as he plays more matches. It is not easy to handle the pressure of playing international cricket. Playing for an IPL franchise is different, but things are completely different in international cricket as there are a lot of eyeballs on you.” Danish Kaneria.
IRE VS IND: Deepak Hooda’s Century Against Ireland
During the second Twenty20 International against Ireland at Malahide in Dublin. Deepak Hooda maintained his strong batting form by scoring a stroke century. As he destroyed Ireland’s inexperienced bowling attack, Hooda. Whose unbeaten 47 helped India win the first game of the series, appeared to be in excellent form.
After Ishan Kishan’s wicket fell in the third over, Hooda walked out to bat. He and Sanju Samson promptly hammered the Irish bowlers and never looked back. As soon as the limits were set, Deepak Hooda was the aggressor. In the fifth, he connected on two boundaries off Josh Little. And he smashed a maximum to start the sixth against Craig Young.
