Shami advises Umran: If you work on line and length you can rule the world

Veteran Indian pacer Mohammed Shami feels young Umran Malik, with his raw pace, has a bright future ahead and the youngster “can rule the world” if he works on his line and length.

I don’t think it’s easy to play against the pace that you have. Just that we need to work a little on line and length. If we can get a command over it, we can rule the world. “You have a lot of power, future is bright. Best wishes for you, hope you do well,” Shami said during a chat with Umran, which has been posted by bcci.tv.

India captain Rohit Sharma on Tuesday said he did not want Sri Lanka skipper Dasun Shanaka ‘Mankaded’ after the batter had backed up too far on way to a gallant hundred in the first ODI here on Tuesday. Riding Virat Kohli’s 73rd international hundred and half-centuries from Rohit and Shubman Gill, India posted an imposing 373 for seven after being asked to bat first. Sri Lanka were never in the hunt after losing half their side for 161, but Shanaka (108 not out off 88 balls) stood tall amid the ruins with his fighting knock.

The ongoing series was originally planned as the final tune-up for Rahul Dravid's team but Bumrah's absence from the ...
