Adelaide: England will play India in the semifinals on November 10th and it will be the ticket to the final of the tournament. However, just before the game, the England squad faces a major blow as their star player, David Malan, suffers an injury.
Malan sustained a groin injury in the game against Sri Lanka and was taken off the field. The former world no.
Moeen Ali is worried about Dawid Malan
England vice-captain Moeen Ali is concerned about Malan’s injury and said it was not looking good. Speaking to the BBC, Ali revealed his injury “doesn’t look good”.
He said: “He’s a great player and has been for a number of years. He was one of our best players. I don’t know but it (Malan’s injury) doesn’t look good.”
“It doesn’t get any bigger and better than playing India anywhere in the world because of the crowd and they are such a big team and force in cricket,” he added.
Who will replace David Malan?
Currently, Phil Salt is the only player in the England squad who can replace the star batsman. However, Malan’s exclusion can have many negative effects on England’s performance in the game.
