He has thrown the fastest delivery this season at his own pace, which some pundits have labeled him as a contender to play in India. After bowling well in the second half of the 2021 season, Malik took 15 wickets in his first eight matches in the second IPL season, including a brilliant 5/25 leg against Gujarat Titans. But in his last three matches, the 22-year-old fast bowler has had to content himself without a wicket.
