The 22-year-old lad is doing rounds on the internet for his clocking 155 plus speed that too with right line and length. Harbhajan Singh wants the young cricketer to be part of the T20 world cup squad this year. He says year is just a number, and if was in the selection committee he would definitely select him the team.
Umran Malik while playing for his Sunrisers Hyderabad is the highest wicket taker so far with 15 wickets in hand and in one delivery, he even bowled at whopping speed of 157 kmph which is terrific.
“He (Umran Malik) is my favourite, I want to see him in the Indian team because what a bowler he is,”
“Tell me any one bowler who bowls more than 150 (kmph) and is not playing for the country. So, I think it is a great thing and he will inspire many youngsters to take up this game, where he has come from and what he is doing in IPL, he has been unbelievable,”

Harbhajan Singh showering praises for the player said Umran will learn with time and is a promising cricketer. He continued further saying that age is just a factor and should consider him. Talking about age, Harbhajan also used a terrific example stating about Sachin Tendulkar and himself saying,
“When Sachin (Tendulkar) played for India, he was very young. Of course, he was Sachin Tendulkar, but that’s okay, ‘aise hi player bantehai’ (players are made like this).
“When I played my first Test, I was 17 and half, but if you keep on thinking that he is a kid, then time will run out. When he is bowling at his best, he should be playing. Forget what his age is, when someone is performing well and is fit enough, they should walk in,”

In fact the former player is indeed right in many sense because when the rod is red-hot it should be beaten, likewise, when the bowler is in good shape and form he should be utilised to the fullest, what if the player stands out to be the tournament winner like Kapil Dev was in 1983. Although, Kapil Dev was not that fast but was a nice al rounder who had the passion for the country and helped India in winning its first world Cup title.
Talking about Virat kohli and Rohit Sharma, Bhajji (Harbhajan) said that of course they are champion and world class players and is just matter of time they will make a comeback in their forms,
“This (lean patch) is a part and parcel of the game, everyone goes through this and I am sure they will come out of it and they will become ever stronger and better players out of this (phase),”
Harbhajan also emphasized the inclusion of Kulcha (Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal) in the world Cup squad and said they can be brilliant in the middle overs. The former bowler worried upon the selection criteria of the BCCI saying,
“I don’t know why they (selectors) break that partnership which was going well for India. It will be great to see them bowling in Australia, where grounds are big and they both are quality bowlers,”
So, it all depends on the likes of what the selectors want and we hope will be the best this time. The current IPL has even shown us some tremendous talent from different franchises and will be interesting to see who will and who will get selected for the upcoming grand World Cup Tournament in Australia this year.”
