After being one of the most successful players in the Sunrisers Hyderabad squad in the 2022 edition, it was expected that Umran Malik will be given more responsibility in the ongoing IPL 2023 as he was expected to prove his worth and get back into the national team after having a successful season.
However, in reality, the ace pacer played only seven matches for the franchise, picking up five wickets in the process before getting dropped. Now, even though SRH are out of the competition, it was expected to field Umran for the final two matches, but unfortunately, in the match against RCB, the player was once again warming the bench.
“I feel you can do anything behind the scene that is your life, if you are performing in the ground and you are working hard for it, that is important for me. When I was the coach or mentor, I believed that when you in the ground, I want to 100 per cent effort from you, off the field what you do, I have not meaning in that, that is your life. I truly did not understand what ‘behind the scene’ meant. It could be that he (Umran) had a fight with the management or maybe there was an argument, then that is bad. You were given an opportunity, you did not perform, now you have to wait until your next chance. You should shut the mouths with your performance,” Sehwag said while talking to Cricbuzz.
