Sunrisers Hyderabad are back to winning ways after losing the first two matches of the IPL 2022 and are now looking to make the most of the momentum that they have. The Hyderabad team is doing exceptionally well in the bowling department and Umran Malik's pace has been the talk of the season.

Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Kolkata Knight Riders with ease and are now looking on course to move towards the top half of the points table. The team has clicked as a unit which is a great sign for the Kane Williamson-led team. SRH's bowling had always been an asset for them through the years and this time around also it is proving to be no different. 

The fast bowlers are doing a great job for their team and Umran Malik is looking like the most threatening bowler for them. Malik's pace is breathtaking as he consistently clocks in the 150 kmph bracket which was a rare sight up until now for most Indian fast bowlers. SRH bowling coach Dale Steyn was all praise for the young Umran Malik after the game against Kolkata Knight Riders.

The former South African cricketer while in conversation with host broadcaster Star Sports said, "Umran is fantastic. It (his performances) is no reflection of me at all. It's all him at the moment. He has got amazing skills, he is showing everybody, bowling 150 kph. I am kind of living through him, wishing I could do it. But it's all him at the moment. He is certainly somebody whom we should keep an eye on for the future".

Dale Steyn was asked how great of an opportunity Umran Malik has to learn from the best people to which he responded saying, "I felt the same when I used to play. I had somebody like Alan Donald in the dressing room. I idolized Alan. When he congratulated me when I did something, that was fantastic. I kind of want to do the same thing for Umran.

He further praised the young fast bowler for his performance and did not take credit for the youngsters' bowling performance in the game against Kolkata Knight Riders.

"It's all him. I am going to just be there to put an arm around him when things are not going well and I am just going to be there to shake his hands when it goes really well."
