Dawid Johannes Malan (born 3 September 1987 in Roehampton, Inner London) is an English cricketer.

Malan is a left-handed opening batsman and occasional leg-spin bowler who has represented Boland in South Africa (2005/2006) and the MCC Young Cricketers in 2006. He joined Middlesex on 7 July 2006 and he made his 1st XI debut in a Twenty20 Cup tie versus Surrey at The Oval on the same day.

In 2007 Malan was the top run scorer in the Second XI Championship with 969 runs at 51.00.[1] He made his first-class debut for Middlesex in June 2008, scoring 132 not out.[2]

His father (also called Dawid) represented Western Province B, Northern Transvaal B and Teddington, as a right-handed batsman and a right-arm fast bowler.[3]

On July 8, 2008, Malan hit the 24th century in the history of the Twenty20 Cup after compiling 103 off 54 balls in the quarter-final against the Lancashire Lightning. Dawid Malan played for Peshawar Zalmi in the first season of PSL and continued with them the following season in which they won the Final played in Lahore. He was part of a very select group of foreign players who agreed to play in the Final; due to terrorism threats afflicting Pakistan for several years and as a result of this, gained a fan following in Pakistan

Dawid Malan along with Rakep Patel jointly has the record for the highest ever individual score in any forms of T20s when batting at number 6 position(103).[4]
