Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer Umran Malik rattled the Punjab Kings in the 20th over of an IPL 2022 match in Navi Mumbai, picking three wickets without conceding a run.
The J&K quick had Odean Smith caught off the second delivery before cleaning up Rahul Chahar and Vaibhav Arora off the fourth and fifth balls, respectively.
Umran Malik became the fourth bowler to bowl a maiden in the 20th over in the IPL, joining Irfan Pathan, Lasith Malinga, and Jaydev Unadkat.
Irfan Pathan (Kings XI Punjab vs Mumbai Indians, Mohali, April 25, 2008)
