I used to play one over matches at that time and run to bowl fast yorkers. In the year 2018, under-19 Tries Gua and I were bowling. A selector saw me. I was bowling in joggers shoes, then my friend gave me spike shoes and then I came in the under-19 team. Then I was playing under-23 cricket.

Irfan Pathan gave important advice

Was practicing continuously in the year 2018. After U-23, I played Vijay Hazare and Ranji Trophy. I am thankful to Sunrisers Hyderabad for giving me a chance. Irfan Pathan came to me and he told me where I can improve. At first I was scared to bowl Warner and Williamson in the nets, I prayed to God to bowl a good ball. I kept learning and it helped me.

When will Umran break Nortje’s record?

If we talk about the fastest bowlers in the IPL, then South Africa’s fast bowler Anrich Nortje is in this list. He bowled the ball at a speed of 156.22 kmph. But among Indians, Umran Malik is at the forefront at this time.
