In 2016, Dawid Malan made a compelling case for an England call-up with a remarkable innings, scoring an unbeaten 185, surpassing Ravi Bopara’s previous record of 168, while representing the England Lions. The left-handed batsman has showcased his prowess with 18 first-class centuries and an additional 10 list-A hundreds.
His sensational performances for Middlesex earned him a long-awaited Test debut in July 2017 at the Oval, marking an 11-year journey since his initial foray into first-class cricket. Malan’s exceptional form didn’t go unnoticed in the shorter format either. In July 2017, he earned his spot in England’s T20I side against South Africa, where he delivered an impressive knock, scoring 78 runs.
