Ricky Ponting wants Tim David to play T20 World Cup for Australia

Legendary Australian captain Ricky Ponting believes that hard-hitting revelation Tim David can be a key figure in Australia’s squad and can help them win the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, later this year.

The 26-year old all-rounder has emerged as a bolter for the squad off the back of a number of headline-grabbing individual performances across domestic cricket.

A batting all-rounder with 14 T20Is under his belt through his time with the Singapore national team, David is eligible to switch allegiances and has compiled more than 2,000 runs in quick time across competitions in Australia, England and India.

“I would have him (Tim David) in the team. He has improved over the last couple of years, I think he’s the sort of player that could actually win the Australian team a World Cup in that finishing sort of role,” said Ponting in the latest episode of The ICC Review.

“Two years ago he was struggling to get a game in the BBL. He was a fringe player at the Perth Scorchers, then moved down to Hobart Hurricanes. He’s done really well down there,” he added.

According to ICC Hall of Famer Ponting, David is going through his career-best form right now.

“He’s done well in the IPL games he played last season, he’s done well in England – and every other tournament he’s played around the world. He’s probably in career-best form right now, and when you’ve got guys that are at the peak of their powers, I think you just have to play them,” he said.
