Absolutely incredible conversation on SKY just now, Nas and Isha discussing Malan's approach, wondering if his supposed lack of intent (45 off 47 as I type) could be seen as playing for a red inker and harm his future chances....incredulous after having watched Root and Morgan stroke it around at a SR of 80 in the last completed ODI against SL, don't remember it being discussed then!
I think the difficulty with Malan is the gap between his best and worst performances. Very much a mini Chris Gayle in that respect - he can do 80 off 45 but he can also do 11 off 20, especially against spin. Do you take that player or a Root type who'll give you a run a ball 50 more often that not? Honestly not sure.
He's definitely good enough, England just have so many options and bat so deep that there'll always be discussion.
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
