As the hard-hitting, powerful Singaporean
prepares to return to international competition, this time for Australia, Tim David is only one name on everyone’s lips. In the three-match series against India, David, who has captivated the T20 cricket world everywhere he has played, is set to make his T20 World Cup champions debut. Judging by the net session, the 26-year-old is sure to set off some fireworks.
David is seen hitting the ball to every part of the ground during his first practise session for Australia in a video posted by cricket.com.au. The rapid hands, the vicious bat swing, and the spin or pace were all present, and Australia will hope they stay that way.
Here’s the video:
Although David played his first full season with the Mumbai Indians in 2022, he made his IPL debut in 2021. David shown his abilities against the cricket ball and bowling assaults despite having regular opportunities in the latter part of the season. Rishabh Pant, the captain of the Delhi Capitals, and the Delhi fans will never forget his 34 off 11 that helped Mumbai Indians eliminate Delhi Capitals.
In T20, David had a career strike rate of 163, and in his eight IPL games, he struck at a rate of 216. David undertakes a difficult task but does it with ease, according to vice-captain Pat Cummins, who expressed the hope that his performance in leagues like the PSL, BBL, and CPL will also be on display for Australia.
While preparing for the for the First T20I in Mohali Pat Cummins addressed reporters, talking about Tim David, he said, “Batting in the middle order of T20 cricket is a really tough spot. You see most of the run-scorers opening, or batting top of the order. It’s really hard to be consistent coming in when there’s spin bowlers or at the end of the innings. I think he’s been fantastic. If he gets his chance, hopefully he can continue doing what he’s been doing in the domestic leagues around the world. I think he’s an X-factor. He just goes about it slightly differently so look forward to it.”
