However, Vengsarkar feels that India are missing a trick by keeping Malik on the bench. “Everybody has a different outlook on the game. But I feel he deserves to play after showing that kind of speed and accuracy in the IPL. Also when you are playing (international cricket) at home, that’s the right time to test somebody like him, ” he said, while speaking to Khaleej Times.

He is one of the most exciting prospects I have seen in the last 10 years. I hope he does well because he looks very fit, and he has that aggression of fast bowler. He has got pace and accuracy. I think he should be able to play for India for a long time, ” the former Indian cricketer further added.
