'When I got selected for India, Dale sir was with me...': Umran Malik reveals what Steyn told him after India call-up

The 2022 Indian Premier League saw an emergence of a number of talented youngsters. Umran Malik, the 22-year-old

speedster from Sunrisers Hyderabad, took the IPL by storm with his incredible pace throughout the season; 

he ended with 22 wickets to his name, finishing third in the Purple Cap list. Thanks to his consistent performances in the season,

Umran was rewarded with a maiden India call-up for the T20I series against South Africa.

The speedster began his training session with the Indian team earlier this week and in a video posted by the BCCI 

The speedster recalled the moment he got the call-up, and revealed that Sunrisers' bowling coach Dale Steyn had predicted his international call-up even before the season began.

"When I got selected for India, Dale sir (Steyn) was with me in the team bus. We were going for the match

Everyone congratulated me and Dale sir said, “I told you before the IPL that you will get the India call-up after the season'. And that's exactly what happened,

by the grace of god. My goal is to give my best for Team India now,” Malik said
