IND vs SL Live: ‘Umran Malik Should Not Be A Part Of India’s Playing 11 for Sri Lanka T20I’. 

On January 3, the first Twenty20 international of a three-match series will take place at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium between India and Sri Lanka. Umran Malik, a fast bowling star, is a member of the squad for the limited-overs matches. Wasim Jaffer, a former Indian cricketer, thinks the bowler from Jammu and Kashmir may not be the greatest in the T20 format.

Umran Malik made his IPL (Indian Premier League) debut, and the following year he made a breakthrough. The right-arm pacer, who was rushed into the Indian T20I lineup, hasn’t had a good start. In three games for India, he took two wickets at an economy rate of 12.44.

T20 Is Not Umran Malik’s Best Format- Wasim Jaffer

Wasim Jaffer predicted that Harshal Patel would rejoin the Indian side in an interview with ESPNcricinfo prior to the India-Sri Lanka T20I series. Although Malik bowls between 145 and 150 clicks, according to Jaffer, he was “tempted” to include Patel instead because of his experience and batting depth.

“I hope Harshal Patel finds a way to make a comeback. Umran Malik may not have T20 cricket as his best format, but nonetheless, he is an exciting talent and this is an exciting season before the IPL,” Jaffer said ahead of the first T20I match.

“I was tempted to include Umran Malik in my XI because you would like to have a pacer who bowls at 145-150 clicks. But Harshal Patel gives you that experience and also gives the depth in batting. You also have Hardik as your this seamer and then have 3-4 all-rounders that give you better balance,” he added.

Yuzvendra Chahal Is Crucial For India In The Middle-Overs – Wasim Jaffer

Due to its tiny size, the Wankhede Stadium has one of India’s highest scoring records. Yuzvendra Chahal’s success on such pitches, in Wasim Jaffer’s opinion, is vital because of his capacity to produce breakthroughs in middle overs.

“Yuzvendra Chahal is crucial for India in the middle-overs as he has the ability to give crucial breakthroughs. Whenever left-handers bat, captains are reluctant to give the ball to a left-arm spinner and similar is the case with off-spinner when right-hander bats. Wankhede’s dimensions are also pretty small and so it is crucial to have a wrist spinner like Chahal.”
