On 15 November 2022, all franchise of the Indian T20 League submitted their list of retained and released players for the next edition of the Indian T20 League. Umran Malik had a great last season for his Hyderabad franchise. So, his team showed faith in him once again after retaining him for the next season.

But. now a new speedster from Jammu & Kashmir has emerged who has impressed everyone with his sheer pace in the domestic circuits. So, ahead of the next season, all franchises might look to keep an eye on that young boy, Waseem Bashir. He can have an impressive season like the current sensation of the Indian team, Umran Malik.

Here is the shared video:

Umran Malik impressed everyone with his pace in the Indian T20 League 2022 along with 22 wickets in 14 matches

Speaking of the video, the 22-year-old pacer from Jammu & Kashmir was seen with some fiery deliveries to batters at different tournaments. Currently, he is a part of the J&K U-25 team and has been scaring batters with pace. Waseem can bowl over 145kmph (could even be 150kmph+). So, ahead of the next edition of the Indian T20 League, all franchises might have an eye on this new raw talent. 

Speaking about Umran Malik, he impressed everyone in the last edition of the Indian T20 League for his Hyderabad franchise. In 14 matches, he managed to take 22 wickets at an economy of 9.03. Then, he got a chance in the Indian team and made his T20I debut in Ireland. But, he did not manage a place in the final squad of team India for the 20-20 World Cup. However, many fans and former cricketers were not happy with the exclusion of Umran Malik from the team. 

Regarding that, the former Australian pacer, Brett Lee said: “Umran Malik is bowling at 150 km per hour. I mean when you have the best car in the world, and you leave it in the garage, then what’s the point of having that car? Umran Malik should have been picked in the Indian squad for the World Cup. Yes, he is young, and yes, he is raw, but he bowls at 150 kmph, so get him in the team, get him to Australia where the ball flies through. It’s different when you have a guy bowling at 140 kmph and a guy who is bowling at 150 kmph.”
