David Malan said that it was a great wicket. A small boundary line helps. It’s tough to
miss those two (World Cup) matches with all the hard work you’ve put in over
the years, but it was exciting to be back here and prove my fitness with that
hundred. The pitch got better in the second innings, then he bowled very well
with the new ball. Maybe we were about 30 runs short.
This England batsman further said that I think 50-over cricket is my
strongest format, but it is very difficult to get into this team. Hopefully, if
If I keep performing like this, I can make a mark. (On bowling) I was about to
come earlier but didn’t come against Alex Carey with a short boundary.
Significantly, while batting first, the England team scored 287 runs for 9 wickets. David
Malan scored 134 runs. All other batsmen flopped. This was the reason that the
England’s team failed to score 300.
In reply, Australia achieved the target by losing 4 wickets. David
Warner, Travis Head, and Steve Smith played half-century innings. In this way,
the champion team of the T20 World Cup had to face defeat in the first ODI against Australia.
Two more matches are to be played in the coming days.
