Dawid Malan Awarded Testimonial Year in 2019
Middlesex Cricket is delighted to announce that Dawid Malan has been awarded a Testimonial Year in 2019, and has put pen to paper on a new long-term contract which will see the club captain remain at Lord’s until at least the end of the 2021 season.
Malan made his Middlesex debut back in 2006 and has since made over 350 appearances for the club in all three formats, scoring almost 15,000 runs, including twenty-six centuries - nineteen of which have come in the first-class game.
Malan made both his Test and T20 International debuts for England in 2017, hitting his maiden Test hundred against Australia in the Ashes Test in Perth that same year.
On being awarded a Testimonial Year and on committing his long-term future to Middlesex Cricket, Dawid Malan commented:
“I am very pleased to have extended my contract with Middlesex and feel honoured to have been granted a Testimonial.
“The club has become my cricketing home in every sense, and everybody – staff, coaches, teammates and members can rest assured that I will be giving everything to represent Middlesex well and to bring success on the field.
“There is a sense of energy around the club, and I believe that 2019 will be a great year for us all.”
Angus Fraser, Middlesex Cricket’s Managing Director of Cricket, commented:
“I am delighted that Dawid has committed his future to Middlesex Cricket and the award of a Testimonial Year is a fitting reward for the commitment he has given and performances he has produced since 2006.
“Dawid is a hugely important figure at Middlesex and has been one of our most consistent and outstanding performers. He is a high-quality cricketer and has much to offer Middlesex, and still potentially England.”
Further information on Malan’s Testimonial Year will be available soon.
