About Timothy

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

Singapore-born, Australia-raised, Tim is the son of former Singapore seamer, Rod David. It was in the 2017-18 season of the Big Bash League where his clean ball-striking capabilities first came to the fore. A call up to represent the Singapore national side soon followed, where 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 was travelling around the globe, and became one of the most in-demand players in franchise cricket. The 2022 season saw some insanely quick cameos in the death overs for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL, and he finished with 186 runs in just 8 games. He’d done enough to catch the eye of the Aussie selectors, and he’d made the transition successfully from Associate cricket to playing with the big boys.

At 6 feet 5 inches, and long levers to fetch and send the ball into orbit, his intimidating frame and presence on the pitch is set to do wonders to our middle order.
