ICC T20 World Cup 2022 Team India
India is currently preparing for the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. The Rohit Sharma-led team will begin their tour against Pakistan on October 23. Earlier, the team was testing its preparations in the warm-up match. But two players from India are yet to reach Australia. Due to visa, two bowlers are delayed in reaching Australia. Both Umran Malik and Kuldeep Sen have been selected as net bowlers for the T20 World Cup.
Both Umran and Kuldeep’s flight to Australia was delayed due to visa issues. Umran is now playing for Jammu and Kashmir in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He stepped up against Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh.
Umran allowed to join the team..
Umran Malik got exemption from BCCI to join Jammu and Kashmir team. However, there is no update on when he will fly to Australia now. Along with Umran, Kuldeep also could not go to Australia due to this reason. He then also made his debut against Rajasthan in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy against Madhya Pradesh.
Destruction in IPL
Umran came into limelight in IPL. He became the only Indian player to bowl the ball at a speed of 157 kmph in the history of IPL. According to media reports, Umran Malik, Mohammad Siraj and Kuldeep Sen are scheduled to travel to Australia with the Indian team on October 6.
Travel with reserve players..
Mohammad Siraj has been selected for the ODI series against South Africa. Umran and Kuldeep could not go due to visa. Now the two players are expected to travel to Australia along with the reserve players.
Brett Lee is fed up with Umran’s bowling.
Former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee has also become a fan of Umran Malik’s bowling. Umran said that he was bowling at a speed of 150 kmph. When you have the best car in the world, what’s the point of keeping it in the garage? Lee believes that Umran should have been selected in the Indian team for the T20 World Cup.
