Tim David don’t require an introduction anymore. His striking was special, said the Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson. The young lower order power hitter is a talented individual who can win matches on his own.

Singaporean cricketer was bought for Rs8.25 crore by Mumbai Indians in the auctions. He earned himself a huge pay day, with the Mumbai Indians buying his services for the 2022 season of IPL for A$1.53 crore. Also, Tim David has been re-signed to the Hobart Hurricanes on a two-year deal, just two days after earning an incredible contract worth Rs 8.25 crore in an Indian Premier League auction in which Mumbai Indians bought the services of Tim David.

David has played for Singapore national cricket team as well as for various franchise teams in the Twenty20 circuit around the world. The Indian Premier League is not his first championship game, yes, the Singaporean cricketer has played domestic cricket for teams in Australia, England, and Pakistan. Tim Davids contract in IPL was signed from Royal Challengers Bangalore in UAEs 2nd Phase of the 2021 season. After playing in Dutch League, Tim David signed for Surrey County Cricket Club for Surreys last two matches in 2021 T20 Blast in England.

Tim David scored 15 runs in six balls in the Twenty20 Hundred season finale, before making a crucial catch and then running out Liam Livingstone, both contributing to his sides win. Less than three years later, a relatively unknown player became an overnight millionaire, having been picked up by the Mumbai Indians, coached by Sri Lankan great Mahela Jayawardene and captained by Rohit Sharma. Sri Lankan great Mahela Jayawardene believed in the ability of this young aggressive batsman but after a couple of matches, he was dropped from team.

When he came back, he made sure that Mumbai Indians should have a retrospective of what they missed by leaving him on bench. For now, it looks like Mumbai Indians are seeing a future star in him and they will be gutted to now use him consistently.
