Brian Lara heaps praise on Umran Malik –

Former West Indian great Brian Lara is in India as the batting coach of Sunrisers Hyderabad. The soon to be 53 year old was in full praise for the talents of Umran Malik who has been the best uncapped bowler on view so far. Lara who has seen some of the finest fast bowlers both during his playing days and after it, had words of praise for the 22 year old. Lara said Umran Malik reminds me a lot about Fiedel Edwards when he first started, a lot of pace and I hope that he understands it as he goes into international cricket, which I think he'll eventually play. In the IPL, a lot of batsmen get accustomed to playing sheer pace, so I hope that he adds a little bit more to his armoury later on. He's a quick learner in the nets, he's willing to learn and it's just awesome to see India has a pacer of that calibre, it's just tremendous”
