“He’s got a lot of mates in the team as well and that helps in sharing the knowledge. It’s a great opportunity for the younger guys to get involved and hopefully we will keep learning and we go (win) again on Friday.”
Jason Holder, the opposite senior member of the SRH group, mentioned tempo is Malik’s “biggest asset.”
“The first thing to mention is his pace; that is his biggest asset. He has been consistent in training and giving us a hard time in training. He is very hard to get hold of and has been deceiving the batters through his pace. That extra pace adds a boost to any bowling attack,” mentioned Holder throughout a digital submit-match press convention.
“It is good to see his control as well. A lot of guys who have bowled quick over the years. Generally they can be erratic but he has been pretty consistent,” Holder added.

We (Roy and I) were fortunate to build a partnership and we knew things wouldn’t happen quickly from a bowling perspective, but we knew if we held our nerve and stay there for longer periods, we can build that pressure.

Williamson said the dismissal of Maxwell was the turning point.
“Game was getting tight and dismissing him (Maxwell) someway was the important thing. They (RCB) are a unbelievable aspect and although we’re not in rivalry (for playoffs), it was nice to see the combat,” he concluded.
“It’s been a tricky season and it is nice to see some of these small enhancements. To see these small changes was good. We thought that the whole was aggressive and we noticed that combat all through the ball as properly.
