Dawid Malan, one of the most prolific English T20 batters, has signed for the PSL 9 Drafts. Previously, Dawid Malan was part of Islamabad United, a franchise that has won two PSL titles.

He has also played for Peshawar Zalmi. PSL 9 is about to kick off, and things are speeding up. The drafts will start after the National T20 Cup has concluded. Among all these, Malan is the first foreign player to register for the Drafts. Let’s have a closer look at the story.

Why Dawid is such a profound batter?

You may not consider him an expert on the longer formats of the game. However, he has marked himself among one of the most batsmen of limited-over formats like T20 and the ODIs. But why should you believe me, right? Well, you can believe the numbers.

To this date, Malan is the fastest to reach 1000 runs in T20 internationals. He is also the 4th fastest to reach 1000 runs in ODI cricket.

Also, the registration for foreign players is open. And Dawid Malan is one of the first to sign for this season. He has previously played for Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi. More about his exploits in HBL PSL later in the article.

Dawid’s T20 Exploits

Dawid is the fastest to reach 1000 runs in the T20Is. However, his overall performance in the format is nothing to scoff at. He made his T20 debut back in 2006 against Surrey. This should tell you that he has been around for a while now.

Since then, Malan has played about 316 T20 matches and scored 8667 runs at an average of 32.95 and a strike rate of 129.74. These numbers are phenomenal. And maintaining this portfolio when you have played more than 300 T20 matches is insane. It speaks volumes of his expertise in the format.

Malan’s performance in HBL PSL

Talking about PSL specifically, Malan hasn’t been that great compared to the rest of his T20 career. He has played 20 PSL matches, scored about 508 runs at an average of 29.8, and has a strike rate of 118. Malan scored only 50 runs three times, with the highest score of 64 runs. This has caused mixed reactions among fans. Let’s talk about that.

However, it will be exciting to see him in PSL 2024. It is worth mentioning that he hasn’t played in PSL since 2020. He last represented Islamabad United in 4 matches in the 2020 season. Malan scored 131 runs in 4 matches, at an average of 43 and a bombastic strike rate of 142.
