“We will definitely look at it”- Aaron Finch hints that Tim David’s Australia call-up is on cards

David made 186 runs for MI in IPL 2022 at a strike rate of 216.27 | MI TwitterAustralia white-ball captain Aaron Finch has said that the Kangaroos are keeping a close eye on Singapore-born cricketer Tim David and that his callup to the Australian team is very near. David played for Mumbai Indians (MI) in IPL 2022 and impressed a lot.

He made 186 runs in eight matches at a strike rate of 216.27, after being benched for an extended period of time. The right-handed batter made his debut in the Big Bash League with Perth Scorchers in 2017 and has since played in the Pakistan Super League, Caribbean Premier League, The Hundred, and IPL.

He is currently playing in the T20 Blast in England, for Lancashire, and on Wednesday, against Worcestershire at Old Trafford, he scored 60 runs from just 25 balls and hammered four fours and as many sixes during his stay at the crease.

Yeah, I think so. He’s been in fantastic form for a while now. The back end of the IPL was fantastic for him. He was at his brutal best. The ability to hit from ball one is a pretty rare skill and he’s done that plenty of times now. Him being so consistent, that’s something we will definitely look at over the next little while,” Finch was quoted as saying by Fox Cricket when asked about David.

Meanwhile, Aaron Finch endured a lean patch in the IPL 2022, where he turned out for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), but managed 86 runs with one fifty in 5 matches he got to play.

However, he was confident that technical adjustments to his batting technique can help him end his “reasonably lean patch” ahead of their Twenty20 World Cup title defense this year.

It’s been a reasonably lean patch. I’ve been through that plenty of times in my career. At times, you go through stages where you get a heap of runs in a hurry and then go through some lean patches. When you’re worried about the ball swinging back in your front pad you can tend to open up, which then has a bit of a flow-on effect.

So it’s just trying to get back to a little bit more square and making sure that I’m giving myself every chance to get through the first five or six balls and then in T20 or ODIs you can sort of flow on from that,” he said.

Australia is set to travel to Sri Lanka this week to take part in three T20Is, five ODIs and two Test matches.
