IPL 2022: Umran Malik refutes reports of idolising Waqar Younis

Umran Malik, Six Sports

In the recently concluded fifteenth season of the IPL, Gujarat Titans emerged as the champions in their debut season.

This IPL was a two-month-long carnival starting on the 26th of March and ending on the 29th of May.

With the inclusion of two new teams, the hype was greater.

Both new teams played well and garnered great support from their fans.

Meanwhile, teams like Punjab Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals had yet another forgettable season.

Major teams like the Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings had their worst seasons in this IPL.

Recently, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s pace sensation, Umran Malik faced a small controversy.

Many Pakistani media channels described Malik as imitating the style of former Pakistan pacer Waqar Younis.

But, Malik has now refuted all such reports and said that he only follows Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami.

Malik has been included in the 5-match T20I series against South Africa at home.

He is excited to be representing India and wants to win all 5 matches for the team single-handedly.
