Napier, Nov 8 Dawid Malan created history on Friday as he smashed the fastest hundred by an England batsman in T20Is in Napier. Dawid Malan got to the hundred in just 48 balls, breaking Alex Hales's England record -- 60 balls. Malan's blitzkrieg helped England post 241 for 3 in their quota of 20 overs in the 4th T20I of the ongoing 5-match series. This was also England's highest T20I total. Malan hit 9 boundaries and 6 sixes as the England batsmen went after the New Zealand bowling attack led by captain Tim Southee. Meanwhile, Dawid Malan also set the record for the highest partnership for any wicket for England in T20I cricket when he added 182 runs with captain Eoin Morgan. Notably, Eoin Morgan was on course to break Dawid Malan's record but he was dismissed on 91 from just 41 balls. Morgan had hit 7 sixes and as many boundaries during his fiery knock. However, Eoin Morgan broke the record for the fastest fifty by an England batsman.
