Malan has appeared for several English clubs including Nelson, Royton, Colne and Rishton.

He was then signed by Lancashire League club Ramsbottom as the club professional for the 2012 season.[2] He was included in the Western Province cricket team squad for the 2015 Africa T20 Cup.[3]

He was the leading run-scorer in the 2016–17 Sunfoil 3-Day Cup, with a total of 1,069 in nine matches.[4]
