Babar Azam took 26 innings to get to his 1000 T20I runs feat whereas the Indian skipper Virat Kohli took an innings more, a total of 27 to get to his 1000 runs mark in T20I’s. The English southpaw batsman stands a fair chance to leave behind the modern greats and become the fastest one to score 1000 runs. Malan has accumulated 855 runs in 19 innings so far and if he manages to score a handful of at least 145 runs in the upcoming series against India, he will be scripted number 1 in yet another ranking.

With a noticeable difference between him and Babar Azam at the moment, it perfectly encapsulates the red-hot form he is in T20s. If Dawid Malan successfully stretches his purple patch into the series, it will just be a matter of time for him to score the needful to become the fastest 1000 run-getter. Having said that, the series against India won’t be an easy one considering that it will be his first outing on the Indian soil and he might take some time to adapt to the sluggish nature of the tracks. This will be a testing time for the southpaw especially before IPL 2021 after he bagged his maiden IPL contract with Punjab Kings.
