IND vs AUS: Australia’s Tim David is Set To Play Three T20Is Against India Next Week, there has been a lot of talk about what David can do in Australia’s shirt. Next week we’ll get our first chance to see what he can do.
He has played 14 T20Is for Singapore:-
It was always likely that these three games in India would see David make his second international debut – he has played 14 T20Is for Singapore – but injuries to Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis made it certain.
IND vs AUS: The work David produced during his globe-trotting cannot be doubted. Of the teams, he has played more than two matches since December 2020 (when his T20 league career started with Hobart Hurricanes).
His strike rate of 216.27 for Mumbai Indians in IPL:-
He has the lowest strike rate of 143.92 with St Lucia Kings in the CPL. His strike rate of 216.27 for Mumbai Indians in the last IPL made fun of him for being dropped during that competition.
There remains a feeling that Australia prefers to have Smith in their line-up. So if they keep him and swap David for the player he likes more, the only option will be Stoinis.
It will be harder than ever to leave him:-
IND vs AUS: The one who helped them win the World Cup semi-final against Pakistan last year and has since scored 162.50 in T20Is. He can also give a few overs if needed.
The low return in these three matches against India should not reduce David’s chances of playing in the World Cup. But if he repeats the kind of innings he has already shown around the world, it will be more difficult than ever to leave him.
