Dawid Malan Surpasses Imam-Ul-Haq’s Record In The ICC World Cup 2023

Dawid Malan surpasses Imam-ul-Haq’s record in the ICC World Cup 2023. In Tuesday’s second match of the ICC World Cup 2023 versus Bangladesh at the HCPA Stadium in Dharamshala, India, England’s explosive batter Dawid Malan demonstrated his batting prowess.

Malan, 36, became the player to score six ODI tons the fastest, cementing his place in cricket history with his masterful performance in a key match.

The left-handed batsman smashed Pakistan’s Imam-ul-Haq’s record, who accomplished it in 27 innings, by reaching this milestone in 23 innings.

Following Imam, Upul Tharanga of Sri Lanka is in third place with 29 innings, Babar Azam of Pakistan is in fourth place with 32 innings, and Hashim Amla of South Africa is in fifth place with 34 innings.

England was chosen to bat first, and after a dismal start to their World Cup campaign in which they were severely defeated by the runners-up of the 2019 big event, New Zealand, they needed to put up a huge total.

Malan’s 140 runs off 107 balls at a superb strike rate of 130.84 helped his team amass a mammoth 364 run total in 50 overs. He hit 21 boundaries, 16 fours, and five sixes throughout his ferocious innings.

With his outstanding knock in Dharamshala, Malan set two more personal records. In Dharamshala, where the Indian batsman made 127 runs against the West Indies in 2014, Kohli had held the previous nine-year record for the highest individual score, he first overcame that mark.

When Malan reached 113 runs in his innings, he also beat Ian Bell’s record for the greatest individual ODI score by a visiting hitter at the same location.

Malan entered the select group of English batters who have recorded the most ODI hundreds in a single year with his fourth century this year.

Malan has now joined the group of players who have scored four ODI tons, which also includes David Gower in 1983 and Jonny Bairstow in 2018. Bangladesh had reached 160-5 in their 30 overs of batting at the time this item was sent.
