The 28th match of IPL 2022 was played between Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad. SRH cruised to the victory very comfortably. The star of the match was Umran Malik. It was their 4th match win in a row. With in-form bowling and batting line-up, SRH is looking strong this season.

Sunrisers Hyderabad team’s young fast bowler Umran Malik has again surprised people with his bowling against Punjab Kings. His start in this season wasn’t effective. However, he continued to impress with his pace that clicks over 150.

In this match, Sunrisers Hyderabad team captain Kane Williamson won the toss and decided to bowl first. After that the team of Punjab Kings was reduced to just 151 runs in 20 overs. At one stage, PBKS were at 132 in 16 overs and 175 looked to be on cards.

However, young fast bowler Umran Malik bowled so viciously that the whole Punjab Kings were all out under 155. It was a slow wicket, as pitch conditions were but the pace and bounce Umran Malik generated troubled batsmen in the slog overs. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad team’s 22-year-old young fast bowler Umran Malik took 4 wickets for 28 runs in the bowling of 4 overs in this match. During his last over of the spell, Umran did not concede any runs in the 20th over. To make it more memorable, he also took three wickets. With this, he has become the third bowler in IPL history to have bowled the 20th over maiden.
