SRH Captain Aiden Markram Makes A Big Statement On Umran Malik

Markram distanced himself from the question regarding Umran Malik’s omission at the toss before the SRH vs RCB game on Thursday.  Aiden Markram’s response would leave room for more speculations. “Not too sure to be honest. Certainly, he’s a player with the X factor, bowls at 150kph, but I don’t really what’s about behind the scenes but he has a lot of X factor,” Markram said.

Markram said while speaking at the toss. This statement from SRH skipper has raised a lot of eyebrows with many questioning how can a captain be clueless about a player not featuring in the playing XI.

Former India cricketer Zaheer Khan felt that SRH have not handled the young bowler well this season. “I felt Umran Malik has not been handled well by the franchise, (in) the way he should have been handled, (in) the way his services should have been utilised by SRH. That’s something which was evident. When you are talking about a young seamer, you are also looking at creating that environment and support. And, that guidance is required. Unfortunately that was not seen by SRH. That’s why he’s had a season like this,” Zaheer said.

Umran, who nabbed 22 wickets for Hyderabad last season, hasn’t been as successful in IPL 2023 with only five wickets to his name in seven innings.

Since his India debut last summer, the right arm quick managed to pick 24 wickets in 16 matches across the ODI and T20I formats.
