Umran Malik Team India: Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, political parties and leaders on Sunday congratulated pacer Umran Malik on his selection in the Indian team for the five-match T20I series against South Africa starting June 9. Umran has done wonders in IPL 2022. He bowled dangerously in many matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad. For this reason he was included in Team India.

The Lieutenant Governor tweeted, “Heartfelt congratulations to Umran Malik on his selection in the Indian team for the T20 series against South Africa. It is a proud moment for Jammu and Kashmir. Congratulating Malik, former Chief Minister and National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah said he would watch the series eagerly. He wrote on a Twitter, “Great Umran Malik. We will watch the upcoming T20 series against Proteas (South Africa) very keenly.”

The Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said that Malik is an inspiration to the youth of Jammu and Kashmir. The party said from the official Twitter handle, “Congratulations to Umran Malik on being included in India’s 18-man T20 International team. Despite so many obstacles, Malik has made his place at the top level. He is an inspiration to this generation of youth in J&K.

People’s Conference president Sajjad Lone said, “That day has come. Umran Malik made it to the Indian cricket team. Very few people from Jammu and Kashmir have made it to the team. Congratulations. Best wishes.”

Umran Malik has taken 21 wickets in 13 matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL. His ability to bowl consistently at speeds in excess of 95 mph (in excess of 150 kph) impressed everyone and there was a demand for his inclusion in the national team.
