ICC T20 World Cup 2022: “He’s got raw power” – Glenn Maxwell on Tim David’s ability


ICC T20 World Cup hosts Australia will tour India as a preparatory campaign ahead of the big event, scheduled for October and November. The defending champions, announcing their team, made just one change to their squad, putting Tim David in the place of spinner Mitchell Swepson.

David, who has not represented Australia so far, is a highly sought after product in the shortest form of the game. The globetrotter has always done well in franchise competitions around the world and has made a name for himself as one of the top finishers.

Maxwell compares the sheer power of Tim David to Marcus Stoinis and Mitch Marsh

Speaking of David, another great batter of the Australian team, Glenn Maxwell, said David’s abilities were rare.

“One of the rare things he has, of which there aren’t many in Australia, is just brute force. He can flex the ball in much the same way Stoinis and Mitch Marsh do.

“He’s probably developed his game a little bit over the past two years, with a little more offside.” [shots] so he’s not a one-dimensional batter, he’s able to clear the line in different areas,” Maxwell told The Bharat Express News in an interview.

Tim David likely to make his debut for Australia on the India tour

The 26-year-old Singaporean-Australian was one of the biggest buys in the late stages of the IPL auction and lived up to his lofty reputation. After being dropped from the lineup mid-season, David returned to play some great innings, scoring 186 runs with a staggering 216 success rate.

“He’s doing it against spin and quicks, which is something that’s really impressive and something that impressed me during the IPL and also to watch him go about his business,” Maxwell concluded.

Australia is expected to debut David for the World Cup and give him time to settle into the schedule of things. The team has yet to figure out their batting formation, something they are expected to do in the run-up to the tournament.
