Aakash Chopra reacted to Umran Malik bowling only one over in a video shared on his YouTube channel, where he said,
Why did Umran Malik bowl only one over? Undoubtedly, that one over of his was costly, but a 12-12 over match is very difficult. Only two bowlers could bowl three overs each. One of them was Bhuvi, and the other was Chahal. In my opinion, there was a mistake in the calculations of the bowlers.
Talking about Umran Malik, in IPL 2022, he made many headlines due to his tremendous pace. He was the second-fastest bowler in the 15th season of IPL.
