NZ VS IND: When Umran Malik was left out of India’s T20 World Cup roster, there were numerous heated disputes and discussions on live television and social media. Harbhajan Singh, Dilip Vengsarkar, and other former India internationals expressed their displeasure with the choice.
But to everyone’s surprise, Abdul Rashid, Umran’s father, thinks it’s fantastic that the team management didn’t push him. That’s because he’s still learning. Umaran Malik had to wait a while before playing for India in an ODI match, despite having a strong showing in the most recent Indian Premier League.
However, Malik seized the chance when it presented itself against New Zealand in the opening ODI of the current series and claimed two significant wickets with the new ball. Devon Conway and Daryl Mitchell were quickly bowled out by the speedster, who also conceded 66 runs in his ten overs.

Abdul, who was watching the game on TV in Jammu, appeared quite happy with his son’s performance. Rashid also mentioned how unaffected he was when India’s T20 World Cup roster was unveiled.
He defended the selectors by claiming that because the seasoned players were performing well, Umran was passed over. “People claimed he wouldn’t be chosen for the World Cup. We are happy that he did not succeed.
Things take place when they are supposed to. There is nothing to hurry behind. The child is still learning. He uses the same changing area as the more seasoned individuals. He’ll visit them and pick their brains.
There’s no rush. After India’s seven-wicket loss to New Zealand in the first ODI, Rashid said, “The big players who are already there, they are doing pretty well while others get the opportunity after being noticed.
NZ VS IND: 2nd ODI Match Preview
The second One-Day International (ODI) between New Zealand and India will take place at Hamilton’s Seddon Park on Sunday, November 27. After an excellent seven-wicket victory in the opener game at Auckland. The Kiwis will be fired up going into this match.
A win in this match will give the team captained by Kane Williamson an unbeatable lead in the three-match series. Tom Latham’s undefeated 145 and captain Kane Williamson’s supportive 94* helped New Zealand. They cross the finish line in the 48th over, despite the bowling appearing a little rusty in the first innings.
India, on the other hand, put on outstanding batting displays. But the bowling simply wasn’t good enough to hold off a 300+ score on the day. The visitors now have to put up a group performance to win the series.
The Indian team will face challenges, though, as they haven’t won an ODI match against New Zealand since the heartbreaking 2019 World Cup semifinal at Manchester’s Old Trafford.
