The new batting sensation Tim David has played some stunning knocks that made him a smash hitter. It took some time for Australia to value his potential but the opener David Warner has expressed his happiness to see the 26-year-old be a part of the Australian squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
“Now he’s in our team and our set-up, it’s a godsend. He’s an incredible player and he’s got some serious power. It boosts our middle order. With his height as well, and strength, it suits us that’s for sure,” David Warner said after Australia’s 31-run victory over West Indies.
One of the best finishers, Marcus Stoinis is currently not a part of the Australian squad while Mitch Marsh also missed the second T20I against West Indies as well. However, Australia’s plans will soon be known when England plays a three-match T20I series against the defending T20 world champions. Before the all-important tournament, that will be the last time when both these teams will play competitive cricket as well.
“Coming out and playing that role there when it was a hard wicket to start on really opens our eyes to ‘how do we utilise that?’ But even what he did for Mumbai (Indians, in the IPL), he got a couple of thirties or forties off eight or nine balls – it’s incredible. You don’t get these types of players every day. It’s going to be good for us moving forward and hopefully, there’s a spot there as well because the selectors have got a headache now,” David Warner concluded.
