Singapore-born swashbuckling batter Tim David has expressed his desire to be a part of Australia’s T20 World Cup squad. He has also said  that international cricket would be a different challenge than T20 leagues, but he is happy with the potential opportunity. However, David has been one of the most popular finishers in T20 cricket worldwide due to his skill of big hitting. The youngster played with a strike rate of 158.52 in the shortest format and averages 46.50 in 14 matches as well.

And, Tim David also acknowledged that he would be thrilled to be in Australia’s T20 team despite knowing the side has gone unchanged since their T20 title win as well. However, he is looking forward to enjoying the experience if given an opportunity as well.

He said, as quoted by BT Sport: “They won the World Cup six months ago and that team hasn’t changed since then. Those guys have been playing for Australia for a long time. If I had the opportunity to be a part of it, I’d be thrilled and really excited. I’m not really thinking about it too much, to be honest. Playing well in T20 leagues fills me with a lot of confidence, but international cricket is a different beast so we’ll see what happens if I get that opportunity. It’s just another challenge. I just want to keep trying to improve and have fun.”

Meanwhile, both Aaron Finch and Matthew Wade strongly believe Tim David will play for Australia sooner or later, with the former applauding his big-hitting skills and revealing that he is on their radar too as well. Based on his IPL 2022 performances, where he played at a strike rate of 216.28, the Australian selectors could add him in at the T20 World Cup at home this year.

“I’m really lucky to have the opportunity to do this. It’s definitely hard. I haven’t seen my family in a long time, they’re coming over to the UK soon and I’m looking forward to that. I’m really lucky to have a lot of support from my family and my partner. It is challenging so it makes you hungry to want to perform and make the most of the playing opportunities that you do get,” Tim David concluded.
