Dawid Malan hope she has ticked a few boxes for England dur­ing the last 12 months and is ea­ger to put pres­sure on Eoin Mor­gan and the se­lec­tors be­fore the 2021 Twenty20 World Cup.

The York­shire bats­man con­sid­ers him­self a fringe player for his coun­try de­spite a record of 661 runs at an av­er­age of 50.84 in only 15 T20 in­ter­na­tion­als.

Ahead of to­day’ s third T 20 I against Aus­tralia, Malan said: “It’s been tough. We all know how good the play­ers are that hold those po­si­tions.

“Their records over the last four or five years have been fan­tas­tic. For any­one to break in, you have to be ex­tremely con­sis­tent and win games of cricket for England.

“Hope­fully I’ve ticked a few boxes that Eoin, the se­lec­tor sand coaches want and hope­fully I can keep build­ing on this if I get op­por­tu­ni­ties.”
