Rashid Latif all praises for young Indian pacer

ISLAMABAD:   Former Pakistani captain Rashid Latif has lauded young Indian pacer Umran Malik after he produced a stunning performance in an Indian Premier League (IPL) fixture to help Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) get over the line against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
Umran bowled superbly for his 2/27 and got the crucial scalp of Shreyas Iyer and Sheldon Jackson which helped SRH restrict KKR to 175/8 in 20 overs.
Talking on his Youtube channel, Latif stated that Umran can surely “make a name for himself” in the coming year for the Indian team, especially in limited overs cricket considering the incredible pace he possesses.
Latif said India should consider taking Umran to Australia for the T20 World Cup this year as he would trouble batters with the pace and bounce he would extract from the bouncy pitches.
“After the IPL, they will start preparing for the international matches again. We have an Asia Cup and then the World Cup. They will have to try him out in one of them. On the bouncy pitches of Australia, he can easily take out the Asian batters, whether they’re from Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan, or whoever India plays. Maybe the Aussies could play him,” he said.
