Chris Silverwood says “I think it is a role he does very well” and features Dawid Malan in T20 World Cup 2021. Silverwood has underlined the significance of Dawid Malan. Amid polarizing suppositions regarding his inclusion within the group. In any case, Chris Silverwood accepts Malan holds the batting line-up together. Which can be vital for England. Amid tricky situations within the ongoing T20 World Cup. While Dawid Malan is the No.1-ranked T20 batsman. Also, his ability has come under criticism. Due to him consuming too many deliveries. He averages a healthy 43.19 in T20 internationals. However, he slightly struggles against spin-bowling.
Moreover, Silverwood defended the move by not deciding to send Malan to bat. Against the West Indies, saying it was about net run-rate. However, he asserted that England might not face the same situation. Also, Malan is the ‘glue’ for them.
“Just because you saw what we did yesterday, I wouldn’t read too much into that. It was just us trying to get ahead of the game, trying to get some extra breathing space further in the tournament. We have a lot of power around him and just because we decided to go for power last night, there was a method behind that, we wanted to get the run-rate up. On other days we wouldn’t do it. To have him up the top of the order, he can act like glue for us. I think it is a role he does very well,” Chris Silverwood said.
Lastly, Dawid Malan bats at No. 3 did not come out. In to the bat at his usual position as England. They decided to send their stroke makers to gun down the target of 56 in Dubai. Also. the Three Lions lost four wickets but won the match in 8.2 overs. While Silverwood hailed the performance. Against the defending champions in Dubai. He warned the players against complacency. And then he stated that this was only a start.
