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. He made his first-class debut for Middlesex in June 2008, scoring 132 not out.
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.
On 8 July 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. 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.
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).
In June 2017, he was named in England's Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for the series against South Africa. He made 78 on his T20I debut for England against South Africa on 25 June 2017. England won the match and Malan adjudged man of the match award for his batting performance.
In July 2017, Malan was added to England's Test squad, ahead of the third Test against South Africa. He made his Test debut for England against South Africa on 27 July 2017 as a no. 5 batsman. He made 1, before being bowled out by a yorker from Kagiso Rabada. In the second innings he was dismissed for 10 – an unimpressive debut compared to his T20 debut the previous month. He also failed to impress in his second Test, raising questions over his Test future. However, he managed to keep his place for the series against the West Indies and was able to score his maiden test fifty, helping England to win in their first day-night test.
