Ravi Shastri warns Umran Malik and advice him to hit the ball on right areas

Former Indian coach Ravi Shastri has warned pace sensation Umran Malik. Indian young Speedster grabbed his attention in the ongoing IPL for his consistent bowling above 150 Kmph. He clocked 157 Kmph, fastest delivery of the season against DC , which was smashed by Rovman Powell for a boundary.

Speaking with Star Sports, Ravi Shastri said Umran Malik will play for India very soon. He also gave him valuable advice to hit the ball on the right areas. If Umran doesn’t do that then it will go backfire on him. Shastri also told that Whooping pace doesn’t matter in T20 format.

“He will play for India very soon but if you don’t get it right that 156 will go for 256 off the bat. And that is exactly what is happening. The pace is good, but you got to get it in your mind that you have to out it in the right areas. Otherwise, just hold yourself back and use that space sparingly to surprise the batter. Those kind of thoughts should go to your mind,”

“If you don’t get it right, you are going to fetch and fetch big time. It goes off the bat at 250 to 300 speed! The pitches will slow up as the tournament progresses and it has become more batting friendly now so has got to get it right. I’m seeing the media and everywhere it say 156, 157 – it doesn’t matter in this format. You have to get it in the right areas and he has it. If he attacks the stumps he will be far more consistent. 156, 157 – very good – but channelise it in the right direction,” he said.
