Early Life

Randhir Singh Manhas, Umran’s coach, took him as a ward when Umran was just 17. He had come to the Maulana Azad Stadium in Jammu where he met Manhas in the Cricket Coaching Centre.

Mahas has said during the beginning, that Umran was very lazy and not very hard working despite having a natural talent and passion for the game.

Manhas, who is also known as ‘Rajan Sir’ by his students, recalled that Umran got selected for the U-19 Jammu & Kashmir Team, but hardly received any chance to play. He also says that Umran developed his speed by bowling with tennis bowls and playing regular tennis ball Cricket.

Umran, who had been a class X Dropout and came from a humble background, never found it easy to play Cricket but his father’s support did help him come ahead. Ajay Ratra, the current coach of Assam and former Indian cricketer was impressed by Umran when he saw him in the nets during a Ranji Trophy Match.

Things took a very different turn for Umran as former Indian bowler Irfan Pathan took him as his ward. Pathan believed that while Umran had a great pace, his bowling action needed some work. In 2019, he wanted to give Umran maximum time for practice, but could not due to the abrogation of Article 370.
