Indian young pacer Umran Malik lacks consistency despite his speed. Compared to that, Pakistan’s Haris Rauf is a much more consistent and fast, former pacer of the country Aqib Javed. Javed compared Haris with Virat Kohli while expressing his opinion on social media.
Two bowlers from two countries. The size is similar in shape. The bowling style or style is also clear. Naturally, there will be comparisons between the two playing the field at the same time. One is Pakistani pacer Haris Rauf and another is India’s young pace sensation, Umran Malik.
Both have been consistently bowling at 150 mph in recent times. From IPL, Big Bash, and CPL to International Genres. But in the eyes of Pakistan’s legendary pacer Aqib Javed, there are several differences between the two. He said, just like Kohli is not compared with other batsmen in the world, Haris Rauf is also much ahead of his contemporaries.
Akib’s eyes caught several differences. One of which is the lack of consistency. He felt that Umran’s batting had flashes of speed at the beginning of the ODIs but at the end of the day, it decreased a lot. And this seems to be holding him back a lot in the race with Harris. Although he sees both of them equally in the storm of speed. Harris bowled at a rate of 93.8 miles or 151 kilometers in the last Twenty20 World Cup. Umran is still the best 156 in the international even though he raised 157 km in IPL. So to survive in this world of cricket Umran has to be fitter, the pace legend thinks former Pakistani pacer Aqib Javed said, ‘Umran is not as fit as Haris. His training is not complete. Because of that, he is not able to pick up the pace consistently in the ODI matches. Initially, it was 150 but later it became 138. Harris is way ahead here. His consistency is commendable. See speed is not the last thing. How consistent you are will set you apart.’
Aqib Javed has compared Haris’ skill with Virat Kohli’s in the current modern cricket. According to him, Harris is the Kohli of bowlers. He lives a disciplined life like Virat and follows the rules. And this lifestyle has an impact on the playing field. Aqib Javed said, ‘The difference between Kohli and others is his fitness. In his orderly living. Harris is also ahead there. He is the Kohli of bowlers. Many people have the skill, but applying it requires fitness and training. His life, training, and everything are very clean. According to cricket experts, one of these two may one day break Shoaib Akhtar’s speed record. Create a new history. But consistency is more important to Akib than speeding up to 160 km
