Just one of them is a former India pacer, Ajit Agarkar.
Whilst speaking on the write-up-match discussion on Primary Video clip, Agarkar praised Umran indicating there are a lot of bowlers in India who can bowl very good line and duration but there aren’t a lot of who can do that with a 150 km/ph delivery, and that is where he (Umran Malik) will come into the picture. Agarkar explained bowling at that velocity is no less than a distinctive capacity, and that Malik needs to be nurtured effectively so that he gets the self confidence to do nicely continuously at this stage.
“There are lots of bowlers who bowl line and length, there are very number of who can get it up to 150 and that is a unique capability to have. So you have bought to nurture it and you have obtained to give him that self-assurance,” Agarkar explained.

“When another person is as raw as he is, I think he experienced a excellent day. He gave India the handle he gave India the wickets which stored India in the sport. I know Shreyas (Iyer) said that they thought they had been over par but with the proportions of this floor and if there is a established batter, it results in being quite difficult to stop.”
For the duration of the initial ODI, Malik picked up two wickets of opener Devon Conway and Daryl Mitchell, while Agarkar reckons with individuals scalps, he introduced India back into the video game.
