One of the questions Bhuvi asked Umran Malik was of his celebration, which was quite similar to Dale Steyn’s when the South African used to bowl. Umran Malik laughingly answered the question saying, ,”In the nets, the umpire is Dale Steyn sir and every time I take a wicket, he does the punch celebration, so that’s how it started and now I celebrate that way every time I take a wicket in the match”

Umran Malik has been praised by many pundits and former cricketers since his debut in the IPL. He also broke the record of bowling the fastest ball in IPL 2022 and second fastest in IPL history, clocking 157 against Delhi Capitals. While, the player has been expensive at times, having an average economy rate of over 9, there is no doubt that he is the fastest bowler that India have right now.
