Tim David, the flamboyant batsman of Multan Sultans, has expressed his excitement to hit sixes and score big runs in this season of Pakistan Super League (PSL). In an interview with Geo News before the Sultan’s game against Islamabad United in Rawalpindi, the Australian cricketer shared his high expectations from himself and his desire to contribute as much as possible for his team.
David’s confidence was not misplaced as he scored 60 off 27 balls, hitting 5 sixes, just hours after his interview to Geo News. “I have high expectations of myself. I just want to go out on the field, contribute to the team’s success, and have a lot of fun out there,” he said.
As an aggressive batter, David aims to win the tournament for his team, Multan Sultans. He expressed his disappointment at coming second last year and losing the final, but also acknowledged that such things are hard to control. However, he remains committed to playing well and winning the tournament this season.
David was first introduced to the PSL by Lahore Qalandars in the COVID-hit 2021 edition for the Abu Dhabi leg of the competition. His flamboyant performance during his stint with Qalandars brought him to everyone’s notice and made him one of the most sought-after players in franchise cricket.
In his recent interview, he praised the PSL for its competitive nature, describing it as a great challenge. “PSL is great. It’s so challenging for me. It was the first franchise tournament I played in and then came back last year and did well. I knew I was playing really good cricket because it is a challenge to come here, especially as an overseas batsman and to do well with the spin,” he said.
David also spoke about the role of the PSL in his professional growth, highlighting how it has helped him figure out his game and discover different ways to improve. He emphasized the competitive nature of the local players and the opportunities it provides for overseas players to test themselves.
