Nagpur. In one of the videos that went viral earlier this week, Tim David was seen hitting long sixes in Australia’s net session in Mohali ahead of the opening T20I against India, which was ultimately a memorable start for Australia. Playing T20 cricket for Singapore a few years back, David never thought that one day he would play for Australia and be selected for the T20 World Cup to be held in the country next month.
David made his white-ball debut for Australia against India in the first T20I of the three-match series on Tuesday and teamed up with Matthew Wade to help the guests win a four-wicket haul and take a 1-0 lead in the series. . David was born in Singapore to Australian-born people who moved there in the early 1990s. In 1997, when he was two years old, his family moved back to Australia and grew up in Perth. He made his debut for Singapore in 2019.
Having been recognized as a big hitter in various franchise-based leagues such as Perth Scorchers, Hobart Hurricanes, Lahore Qalandars, Southern Brave, St Lucia Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Multan Kings and Mumbai Indians, David was recently picked up this year. At the end of the year he was included in the squad for the T20 World Cup.

Although he debuted with a huge reputation as a big hitter of the ball, 25-year-old Tim David said there was no extra pressure when he debuted for Australia. David said during a conversation with the media before the second day, ‘No, I don’t think it creates any pressure. I just play my game there and do what everyone else does.
