114

T-20 sensation Tim David became the first cricketer from Singapore to feature in the Indian Premier League when he made his debut for Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Sharjah classic against MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings on Friday. 

David also became the first-ever cricketer to play an IPL match before his national team got Test or ODI status.

 David was picked as a replacement for New Zealand’s Finn Allen ahead IPL 2021’s UAE league.

The 6 feet 5 inch tall David, who is of Australian descent, currently plays international cricket for Singapore and he brings with him a novelty factor in Virat Kohli’s team. 

Since ICC has accorded T20 International status to all its 106 member nations, David has played 14 T20 Internationals with 558 runs in his kitty at a strike rate of 158 plus.  

He has played 49 T20 games, factoring in his appearances in the BBL and PSL with a tally of 1171 runs at a strike rate of 155 plus.

 In BBL, he has played for Hobart Hurricanes and Perth Scorchers while he had recently scored two List A hundreds in the Royal London Cup for Surrey, including a career-best 140 against Warwickshire. 

While David by birth became a Singapore passport holder, the family migrated back to Australia and he grew up in Perth. 

His father apart from being an Ex-Singapore international is also an engineer.
