The 22-year-old pacer's inclusion in the Indian cricket squad for the five-match T20I series against South Africa, which began on Thursday, has boosted expectations.
Umran's development is being eagerly monitored as he wowed everyone with his speed in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. Many former players, including Dale Steyn, believe it is time for Umran to be reintroduced into the starting lineup.
With only a few series left for the Indian cricket team before the T20 World Cup in Australia in October, Umran needs to build a name for himself at the international level quickly if he wants to be included in the Indian squad.
Former Indian cricket team coach Ravi Shastri, on the other hand, believes it is too soon to give the youngster his big break.
