Australia name Tim David in T20 World Cup squad

Defending champions Australia have added Tim David, in their 15-man squad, announced on Thursday, for the upcoming T20 world cup. The same team, led by Aaron Finch, will travel to India for three T20Is and then return to play matches against England, West Indies in preparation for the mega tournament.

There aren’t a lot of other changes to the squad that won the T20 WC last year in UAE, apart from the absence of Mitchell Swepson. David, who has made a strong impact globally in T20 cricket, has never played for Australia. All his 14 T20Is, in which he has scored 558 runs – at an average of 46.50 and a strike rate of 158.52 – have come playing for Singapore, the country of his birth. His last international appearance was in March 2020, against Hong Kong.

“He is a highly gifted, natural ball-striker who will add extra batting depth to the group which has had a lot of success in T20 cricket,” national selector George Bailey said. “We expect him to play a similar role to that he has been playing in the past few years.”

Squad: Aaron Finch (c), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Tim David, Josh Hazlewood, Josh Inglis, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis Matthew Wade, David Warner Adam Zampa
