Tim David in the T20 World Cup squad in Singapore – Australia

David decided to be a part of the Australian team this year after Mumbai Indians bought over a million dollars during the Indian Premier League auction this year. The 26-year-old David played 14 T20I games for Singapore in 2019 and 2020, batting with an average of 46.5.


David grew up in Perth, but returned to Australia when he was 2 years old.

The Australian team will travel to India in September for three T20 Internationals and then play the West Indies, England and India in the World Cup before returning home, starting on October 22 against New Zealand at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Legspinner Mitchell Swepson was overlooked after visiting the United Arab Emirates last year when Australia won their maiden T20 World Cup.

“This is the same team that has become the first Australian men’s team to win the T20 World Cup, now very much looking forward to playing the tournament at home,” chairman of selectors George Bailey said on Thursday.

“The team (David) continues to build itself up with some quality performances in leagues around the world, making it into the team. He is a very talented natural football striker who can punch in groups that are very successful in T20 cricket. Will add extra depth.”

Legends opener David Warner will miss three T20Is in India in preparation for cricket’s hectic summer, to be replaced by the all-younger -Cameron Green.

The T20 World Cup is scheduled to be completed on 13 November at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Afghanistan, Australia, England and New Zealand will play in Group 1 with two qualifications, while Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and South Africa will play in Group 2 with two more qualifications.
