Yesterday, Middlesex played against Surrey in the T20 Blast. Middlesex won the match by 37 runs. But during the Middlesex inning, AB De Villiers got out by Imran Tahir. Even Imran Tahir starts his trademark celebration before the umpire has given out.
Dawid Malan scored a brilliant century and helped Middlesex to win the match. He made 117 runs in just 57 balls with the help of 11 fours and 7 sixes.

After the match, Dawid Malan said: “It was one of those days for me when every time I hit the ball it seemed to go over a fielder. It worked for me and I managed to change a game and as a top-order batsman that is what you want to do.”
“We have worked hard on areas where we have struggled in the past like the power-play, and we are putting things into place,” said Malan.
“There are always ways we can improve, but we are pleased with how things have gone so far.”
It is early, but the signs are good,” he said. “Whether we win or lose, the signs are good. The way we are approaching it, they are changing their mindset – if the average score says 150 before the game, we are trying to get 180 to 200.
“The way we are thinking as a bowling unit, we are not just running up and bowling the same ball we’d bowl in four-day cricket, we are changing up what we’re doing.”
“We are thinking about what we’re doing, we’re thinking about different batsmen. It doesn’t mean it’s going to work every game, but it means it gives us a better chance of getting the result that we want.”
“It’s nice to get some wins under the belt, especially early in the campaign, especially while we’ve got guys like AB and Mujeeb around,” Malan added.
