Though Umran Malik had set a benchmark and impressed the selectors still his pace could not scalp wickets for SRH. He leaked 52 runs in four overs which is definitely a matter of concern. SRH lost the match to DC by 21 runs and is currently placed at the 6th position of the POINTS TABLE.

David Warner’s unbeaten 92 helped Delhi capitals achieve the big score of 207/3.

Umran has been making the headlines in IPL 2022 due to his pace and verve. He finished with figures of 5/25 against Gujarat Titans, which is the best bowling figure this season so far. He also picked up 4/28 against Punjab Kings.
