Right-arm pacer from Jammu & Kashmir Umran Malik has joined Sunrisers Hyderabad as a replacement for T Natarajan.

“Under the Regulation 6.1 (c), franchises are allowed to sign a short-term replacement player until the original squad member is permitted to re-enter the team’s bio-secure environment. Hence, Malik will only be a part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad side until Natarajan recovers and is allowed to join the team,” the IPL media release stated.
