About Timothy

No total’s ever safe; no boundary is ever too big, and no bowler is to be pardoned when Tim David’s in the mood. He’s a proper monster with a bat; ask our MI Paltan!

Singapore-born, Australia-raised Tim is the son of former Singapore seamer Rod David. His clean ball-striking capabilities first came to the fore in the 2017-18 season of the Big Bash League. A call to represent the Singapore national side soon followed, and he emerged as the leading run-scorer with 369 runs in five matches in the World Cup Challenge List A tournament.

Over the next couple of years, he travelled around the globe and became one of the most in-demand players in franchise cricket. The 2022 season saw some exceptionally quick cameos in the death overs for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL, and he finished with 186 runs in just 8 games. From there onwards, it was a steady climb up the ladder — T20I debut for Australia in 2022 and ODI debut in 2023.

In addition to the Mumbai Indians, the 6 feet 5 inches man has also donned the Blue and Gold for our sister teams: MI Cape Town (2023), MI New York (2023), and MI Emirates (2024). With long levers to fetch and send the ball into orbit, as witnessed in his unbeaten 45 off 14 balls against RR in 2023, Tim David is all geared up to torment opposition batters in the latest campaign.
