Scoring 103 runs in 51 balls, Dawid Malan smashed his way to an incredible 15 boundaries as he cascaded his way to an exceptional knock. It was a testament to why he’s considered such an electric player and has become such a hot property in the English cricketing fraternity, one which alludes his to hammering his down in our setup for this one.
Someone who was part of his knock was the side’s captain Eoin Morgan with the two stitching together a massive 182 run stand for the second wicket.

Across the course of this series, New Zealand have seen spinner Mitchell Santner become their leading wicket taker with the spinner being more than willing to pitch the ball backwards and take pace off the ball to entice batsmen to go after him. It’s see him snare wickets at consummate ease, seeing us make him an instant pick for this clash alongside Colin de Grandhomme owing to the role he’s played with the bat for his side.
