Also of the potential candidates to bat top 3 (Roy, Buttler, Bairstow, Banton, Malan) Malan is the only one who starts slow and accelerates. The others all just go after it immediately, and it seems pretty clear Morgan/England value that.
You are spot on. Read this https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/28033633/will-england-dare-leave-dawid-malan-again?

Essentially captains are determined by the sums of their parts. After the dreadful performance in 2015 it was obvious we needed a revamp.

Is Morgan really a captaincy genius ? For me not even close. But the role he was tasked for, hes perfect for.

We decided flatter pitches and a collection of big hitters was the way forward, in the previous cycle its bearing in mind after Pietersen, Morgan was the only other truly dynamic batsman we had.

So in Morgan we had the blueprint. But Bayliss was the real brains for me. His white ball cv is stacked by all sorts of trophies won, BB, IPL and CL. He is one of the greatest limited overs coaches of all time.

Morgan have the right people backing him which helped him achieve his iconic moment.
