The 21-year-old Sunrisers bowler had turned heads with his tearaway speeds in IPL 2021

Umran Malik, who turned heads with his tearaway speed in IPL 2021, has been asked to stay back in the UAE as a net bowler for the Indian team for the T20 World Cup, ESPNcricinfo has learnt.

Umran had played only one List A game and one T20 for Jammu and Kashmir before the IPL, and was initially recruited as a net bowler for Sunrisers Hyderabad for this season. He was drafted into the main squad when T Natarajan was ruled out due to Covid-19, and made an immediate impact in his first game, going over 150kph on occasions.
