Malan touched the milestone figure on Saturday during the fifth T20I against India. He achieved the feat in his 24th inning, bettering Azam’s record of 26 innings. During the match, Malan played a knock of 68 runs from 46 balls.
Third on the list is India skipper Virat Kohli, who scored 1000 T20I runs in 27 innings, followed by Australia’s Aaron Finch (29) and India’s KL Rahul (29).
After the blistering half-centuries by Kohli and Rohit Sharma, Indian bowlers restricted England to 188/8 to register a 36-run win in the fifth T20I.
With this win, India clinched the five-match series by 3-2 and now both the teams will face off in the three-match ODI series.
