The IPL 2021 is almost over, and attention is gradually going to the forthcoming T20 World Cup, which will also be held in the UAE. Despite the fact that the squads for all teams have already been released, the boards have been granted till October 10 to make any adjustments. Given the performances of players in the UAE leg of the Indian Premier League, this has led to a lot of speculation and whispers, particularly for the Indian team.

Players such as Rahul Chahar and Hardik Pandya, who are part of the 15-man squad, have had poor seasons, whereas names such as Yuzvendra Chahal and Harshal Patel, who did not make the squad, have impressed everyone with their performances. This is why supporters are eagerly awaiting an official announcement on any roster changes.

While all eyes will be on the main squad, there is one item that all teams must consider in order to prepare for the huge event. Every team has a few net bowlers in their lineup who help them get used to potential match-ups in the game.

Although India has reserved such as Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar, it is currently thought that the team management has opted to bring in a youngster who may provide a new perspective to India’s training sessions.

Umran Malik’s contribution to India’s preparations for the huge event could be critical.

According to ANI, SRH superstar Umran Malik has been requested to return to the UAE as India’s net bowler for the T20 World Cup in 2021. The right-arm fast-bowler burst into the scene in the closing rounds of the IPL 2021, stunning everyone with his tremendous velocity.

Interestingly, he went on to bowl the fastest delivery in the tournament’s league stages with a fantastic speed of 152.95 kmph, something is extremely rarely seen from an Indian bowler.

Umran Malik, for example, may assist Indian batters in becoming acclimated to facing such fast deliveries in the nets. Because they may face bowlers such as Lockie Ferguson and Anrich Nortje during the huge tournament, the SRH kid could be crucial in assisting the side in completely preparing for the challenge.
