Tim David scored 44 runs off 21 deliveries and helped Mumbai Indians post 177 runs on the board.

David who has shown his potential with the bat in leagues around the world was bought by MI in the auctions at a whopping sum but just after two games he was benched and Dewald Brevis was given a go.

This performance by David will give MI management the confidence that he has immense potential and he could replace Kieron Pollard in the long term.

It Is Great To Be On The Winning Side: Tim David

Earlier in the day, after having into bat first Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan got off to a great start as they raced to 74 runs in just 7.1 overs but then Rohit got out to Rashid Khan and MI lost their momentum. They kept losing their wickets as inform batters Suryakumar Yadav and Tilkak Varma could not add much to the scorecard. Pollard’s poor run continued as he was bowled by Rashid Khan.

It was all Tim David in the end who helped MI post a competitive total on the board. Since his return to the side he has scored 20 off 9 balls against Rajasthan Royals, and 44 of 21 against GT.

In the post-match presentation, Tim David said, “Given the context, us winning the game, it feels great. It was a good batting wicket, I missed out on a few scoring opportunities in the last over. Shows how well our bowlers bowled in the second half and get us over the line. The wicket was slightly two-paced, it’s about starting your innings, if you get off to a flier then you just run with it. It’s great to be on the winning side.”

Tim David was dropped after the first couple of games, when asked about how hard was it, he said, “It’s tough when you are sitting off the field, especially watching your teammates not get the result. Try as hard as you can in the nets and be ready when the opportunity comes.

MI cannot qualify for the playoffs now but these performances by David would surely give them the much-needed confidence for the next season.
