In the historic Lord’s Cricket Ground in London, England are taking on New Zealand in the fourth and final One Day International (ODI) on Friday. The match promised high-intensity cricket, and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

The hosts won the toss and opted to bat first, setting the stage for what was expected to be an exciting contest. However, the English side faced an early setback as Jonny Bairstow, one of their key batters, was dismissed in the fifth over, sending a ripple of concern through the crowd.

Dawid Malan’s stellar form continues

Despite the early loss of Bairstow, England had a shining star in the form of Dawid Malan. The left-handed opener was in fine form, carrying on from his impressive performance in the third ODI. In that match, Malan had narrowly missed out on his century, falling just four runs short. This time around, he was determined to make amends.

Malan reached a remarkable milestone during the fourth ODI. In the 32nd over of the match, he showcased his class when he flicked a half-volley bowled by Matt Henry behind square and scampered back for two runs. This brought up his fifth century in the 50-over format, and it was a moment of sheer brilliance.

As soon as Malan reached the milestone, his face lit up with joy. He punched the air in celebration, removing his helmet to acknowledge the roaring applause from the spectators at Lord’s. The crowd was in awe of his exquisite batting display, which had now culminated in a well-deserved century.
