One of the most notable acquisitions at the Indian Premier League (IPL) mega auction in Bangalore was the purchase of Singaporean star Tim David. Mumbai Indians have bought Tim David for Rs 8.25 crore. The Mumbai Indians, who bought Ishant Kishan for a record amount on the first day, today teamed up with Joffre Archer (Rs 8 crore) and Singapore firing batsman Tim David (Rs 8.25 crore).

Like Archer, David was part of an auction battle between multiple franchises. But it was only the Mumbai Indians who won the auction. With a base price of just Rs 20 lakh, why did Mumbai Indians, who are five-time IPL winners, get David at such a high cost? Judging by David’s recent performances, it is certain that the crores spent by the Mumbai Indians will not be in vain. Tim David, 25, has played in tournaments such as the Pakistan Super League, the Caribbean Premier League and the Big Bash League. In 2021, he made his IPL debut for Bangalore Royal Challengers. That was when Tim David played against CSKA.

Tim David is a tiger in T20 cricket

Born in Singapore, Tim David has grown into a well-known midfielder. The progress made in T20 cricket over the past one year is unparalleled. Tim David, who played for the Hobart Hurricanes in Australia’s Big Bash T20 League, is a player who has rocked Australian cricket fans with his silver innings. He later played for the Lahore Khalanders and the St. Lucia Kings in the PSL in Pakistan and the CPL in the West Indies respectively. In his last few PSL innings, David has been consolidating his value in the IPL star market with some smashing innings for the Multan Sultans.

Tim David won the toss and elected to field. The teams he represents have been able to get back into the game with Tim David’s brilliant innings in all of the innings that often got off to a bad start. This is the main reason why the Mumbai Indians decided to shell out crores for him.

He has already earned the reputation of being a player who can play well against spin bowlers. Tim David is different in that there are very few batsmen outside the Indian subcontinent who can handle leg-off spinners equally well. In addition, the world of cricket has been constantly watching Tim David’s ability to beat pace bowlers in recent times. He even has the nickname Sixer Hero. That is why Tim David is going to appear in the role of the best finisher in the Mumbai Indians.

He has represented Singapore in 14 T20s, scoring 558 runs at an average of 46.5. Tim David was born in Singapore but is of Australian descent. His father, Roderick David, is of Australian descent. But Tim David wants to represent international cricket, where he was born and raised. Singapore is an associate member who is not a full member of the ICC. Tim David is not the first IPL player from an ICC Associated country. Earlier, Ryan Tendulkar of the Netherlands played for the Kolkata Knight Riders. In any case, cricket fans are hopeful that the arrival of Tim David will bring a new, Southeast Asian flavor to the Indian Premier League and enhance the existing Australian flavor.
