Umran Malik returns to playing-11. (IPL photo)
Mumbai: The team of Sunrajers Hyderabad has shown great faith in some players for the past few seasons. Umran Malik is one of them. Umran Malik is a stormy fast bowler and has won his team by stacking many batsmen with his speed. But in IPL-2023, this team did not give Umran many chances. Many questions also arose on this as to why Umran is not getting a place in the playing-11. But on Sunday, Umran has finally returned to the playing-11. Umran himself has told that he is playing the match against Mumbai Indians.
However, Umran’s return has come when the Hyderabad team is out of the playoff race. This team is playing its last match of this season on Sunday, in which victory or defeat will not make any difference to it, but if it wins, then Mumbai may be in trouble.

return after 5 matches
Umran is returning after five matches. He played his last match this season on 29 April against Delhi Capitals at the Ferozeshah Kotla Stadium in Delhi. Since then he was dropped from the team. No reason was given as to why he was excluded. In the match played against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Hyderabad captain Aiden Markram said at the time of the toss that he did not know why Umran was dropped. Markram had said that he did not know what was going on behind the scenes.
However, the current season of Umran has not been good. This season he has not appeared in his form. So far he has played seven matches and has taken just five wickets. This could be a reason why Umran did not get a chance, but it is strange to hear the statement of the captain that he does not know what is going on behind the scenes.
