0 3

England opener Dawid Malan played an impressive knock against Bangladesh in world cup match at Dharamsala after scoring 140 runs off 107 balls and vwas man of the match.

Dawid Malan said that he is not in India to ‘prove a point’ when asked about criticism surrounding his ability to play quality spin bowling.

It is nice to contribute. It has been a long journey to get to this stage. To get in here is fantastic and to put in a performance and win a game is great,” Malan was quoted as saying after the match.

If I can score as many runs as I can and help contribute to wins, then hopefully, eventually people’s opinions might change

Since June last year, Malan crossed the 50-mark nine times and converted six of them into hundreds.

The batter attributed it to his hunger for runs that would keep him in the team.

I’ve wanted to be part of this team for so long, it’s been impossible to break into with the players that have been so good.

I feel like every series I’m under pressure, so you know for me to keep silencing people is all I can do,” the left-handed batter said.

While he often had to sit out in the past, Malan has been in red-hot form in recent months grabbing every possible opportunity to cement his place in the side.

Malan was also involved in a partnership of 151 runs with Joe Root, who scored 81 runs. Malan eventually got out to off-spinner Mahedi Hasan.

With the win, England moved to fifth in the points table with a net run rate of 0.553. Their next match is against Hashmatullah Shahidi’s Afghanistan on Sunday, (15) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi.
