ADELAIDE: England batter Dawid Malan is a doubtful starter for his side’s T20 World Cup semifinal against India on Thursday after picking up an injury during the team’s final Super 12 game.
Malan sustained a groin injury in England’s four-wicket win over Sri Lanka on Saturday. The former world No. 1 T20I batter hobbled off the field during the Sri Lankan innings and did not return to bat in England’s run chase.
Vice-captain Moeen Ali said Malan’s injury doesn’t look good.
“He is a big player and has been for a number of years,” Ali told the ‘BBC’.
“He has been one of our best players. I don’t know but it (Malan’s injury) doesn’t look great.”
England, who finished second in their Super 12 Group 1, will clash with Group 1 toppers India on Thursday.
“It doesn’t get bigger and better than playing India anywhere in the world because of the crowds and they are such a big side and force in cricket,” Ali said.
Phil Salt, the only spare batter in the squad, is the likely replacement if Malan does not take the field.
