English Batsmen Dawid Malan
Good news for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) regarding the second edition of IPL-2021. English drummer Dawid Malan has said that playing IPL is a top priority for KXIP. If necessary, he will think about the T20 World Cup, said Dawid Malan. The second phase of the IPL will start on September 19 in the United Arab Emirates. Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, the first phase had to be canceled in several shifts. Malan is the world's top ranked T20 drummer. He
a good comeback in Test cricket after three years with an impressive 70 points in England's opening rounds against India in the ongoing third Test at Headingley here.
“The only guarantee we have at the moment is IPL. We don’t know if we’re going to the (T20) World Cup. We also don’t know if we’re going to the Ashes. So it leaves us in quite a tough situation,” the 33-year-old said at a virtual press conference after the second day’s play.
“I think all possibilities but at the moment I’m committed to the IPL. Yeah that’s where I am at the moment. Nothing sort of changed at the moment, maybe we can reassess,” the left-handed batsman added.
Thursday's play-offs may have revived Malan's testing career to boost his chances against Australia's coveted Ashes later this year. However, Malan said he doesn't take anything for granted.
“Say you give up the IPL and you don’t get picked for either of the England squads, then you’ve given up the IPL also. There are no guarantees at the moment, it (Ashes) is still a long way to go. There is five innings left in the Test series so far,” Malan pointed out.
”…Or if you go to IPL and then you get selected after you’ve gone to IPL, then you’re in the bubble for five-and-a-half months. Hopefully we can get some answers and we can find some time to get a rest out of these bubbles,” Malan added.
