“Of course, Umran needs to get his opportunity in the entire upcoming T20 series against England,” Ghavri told InsideSport.

With the T20 World Cup coming up in October and November, Rahul Dravid and co have time in hand to prepare the youngster for the quadrennial event. The pitches in Australia are going to assist pacers, which will help Malik get adjusted to bowling in such conditions.

Malik can prove to be the X factor in the T20 World Cup with his pace. However, Malik needs to prove himself at the elite level as well. This England series will be his litmus test. Shining against one of the best white-ball sides in world cricket will give him further confidence to deliver his A game in Australia.

“Now it is right time for him to establish himself in the T20 over format. This series can be good preparation for the T20 World Cup. His pace, no doubt will matter a lot. Even his deliveries in the air is also quick, which can trouble batters. If the wicket is helpful for pacers, he can prove to be a fruitful,” Ghavri added.

“If you have that extra pace and put the ball in the right areas along with accuracy, he can take wickets. He has done that in the IPL too.”
