All eyes are on Tim David as the celebrity gears up for her first series in an Australian shirt during the three-match T20I competition in India, which kicks off on Tuesday. The Aaron FinchThe team are looking to capitalize on his successful finish when they defend the T20 World Cup title at home next month. David, 26, made his T20I debut for Singapore in 2019 and played 14 games, scoring 558 runs with a 158.52 strike rate. He also impressed in patches for the Mumbai Indians during IPL 2022.
Former Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardena, who had seen David from close quarters at the Mumbai Indians, praised the hitter.
“I think he will have the ability to take the free kick (free kick) and the good thing is that there is no expectation on him,” Jayawardena said in The ICC Review.
“Personally I think it’s a great space to be in. Australia have a very, very good squad and Tim will bring in a bit of an x-factor if they want to use that in the No. 6 role, this they do. needs a big hitter and an explosive attacker. So it’s great for Australia to fall back on someone like that, having those options.”
Recently, the former Australian scorer Matthew Hayden praised him as a “big X-Factor” and said he had a “killing instinct” in his “heap and limit”.
“Absolutely, I think he’s an X-factor,” Hayden said during a press conference in response to an NDTV question.
“The challenge for him will be to show that to the yellow and green team. Once you get to that international stage, it’s a completely different game. You need to have a solid foundation. But X-factor, yes 100% agree,” he continued.
“If you look at the Australian team, to be honest right now there’s a lack of X factor. Aaron Finch’s form is questionable, you have some other big names that are X-factors like Maxwell, he has can play both orthodox. and unorthodox shots. Tim David, nothing beats strength in T20 cricket,” said the legendary smasher.
