“We met him in the nets, and it’s quite something special. He’s got a decent pace. For a young lad, he runs in and bowls fast. It’s great for him to get a chance tonight. He’s been bowling for a while. few seasons in our nets. It was a special occasion for him, and what a talent!” Kane Williamson said after the game.
But to play first-class cricket, Urman Malik made his debut in List A and T20s for Jammu & Kashmir earlier this year. He impressed with the ball on this T20 debut against the Railways, claiming three for 24 from his four overs. However, he was sacked for 98 of his 10 overs in his List A debut against Bengal.
He played his first IPL game and returned with numbers of 4-0-27-0.
Identifying the correct score was a challenge for our hitting unit: Kane Williamson
Despite limping to 115, SRH made a game of the game by going deep into the last. Kane Williamson lamented that the SRH strokes struggled to get the right score all season.
“I think if we had gotten closer to the 150 mark it might have been par. We had our chances to strangle the score, but it was always difficult with a score like that. For us as a batting unit, it’s the been a challenge to get the right score all season, we have to go back to the drawing board and look for improvement.
“In retrospect is something beautiful. We could have entered into more partnerships. We didn’t get off to a good start and our problem areas were different each time. Unfortunately we fell 10-15 short of what would have been a competitive score,” Kane Williamson said of the team’s performance on Sunday.
With 10 losses this season, SRH has experienced their worst IPL edition ever. They will play against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
