Jammu and Kashmir pacer Umran Malik is also a part of the Indian team that is touring New Zealand. The lethal bowler has said that he is presently focusing on having variations in his bowling.
“It is always a proud moment for me playing for India. Coming back to the team is very nice. I want to play for India for a long time. I am working on developing new deliveries. Like, I am working on slowers and yorkers for T20s. Also, I am working very well on pitching good length and hard length balls. I am enjoying a lot by working alongside the coaches and feels really good,” said Umran in a pre-match chat with broadcasters.
“I trained at the NCA and worked alongside Troy (Cooley, the NCA fast-bowling coach). I am working here in the side (with the national team) and it feels very nice as I get to learn from the experiences of many people here and can see the difference in terms of accuracy. I have to bowl fast, but I will also bowl with the variations,” added Umran.
