England coach Chris Silverwood has warned this may maybe furthermore be worrying for Dawid Malan to power his scheme into the one-day aspect even if he’s now the tip-ranked Twenty20 batsman on the earth.

Left-hander Malan scored 129 runs in three innings towards a stable assault as England beat Australia 2-1 in a Twenty20 assortment at Southampton that carried out on Tuesday.

The 33-12 months-veteran has climbed to the tip of the International Cricket Council’s T20 batting rankings, above Pakistan skipper Babar Azam and Australia captain Aaron Finch.

But Malan was once completely drafted into England’s squad for a three-match one-day world assortment towards Australia on Wednesday, and precise as a reserve batsman.

Malan’s possibilities of playing for the 50-over world champions in Friday’s first ODI at Gentle Trafford seem slim.

But Rashid’s narrate is refined by the truth he would no longer currently play red-ball cricket for Yorkshire and has been managing a lengthy-term shoulder smash.

England need Rashid to play some lengthy-format cricket sooner than he makes a 20th Check look, with Silverwood suggesting a warm-climate coaching camp may well furthermore be an answer.
