Express Indian fast bowler Umran Malik continued to impress in ODI cricket. The pace bowling sensation from Jammu & Kashmir has bowled another searing spell against hosts Bangladesh in the second ODI on Wednesday.

Umran replaced Kuldeep Sen in the game. He justified his selection in the final eleven by knocking over Bangladesh No.3 batter Najmul Hossain Shanto with his express fast delivery of 151kmph.

Umran was included in the Indian team last week after his impressive performances in the three-match ODI series against New Zealand. The Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer replaced Mohammed Shami, who is ruled out of the ODI and Test series.

The young tearaway pacer conceded just eight runs in his first five overs and clean bowled Shanto with a peach of a delivery for 21 with the stumps sent flying with a fiery delivery. However, he was a bit expensive during the last part of his spell as he gave away 58 runs for two wickets in his quota of 10 overs. 

Notably, Bangladesh are leading the three-match series 1-0. India need to win the second ODI to force the series into a decider in the third match at Chattogram on December 10.
