Scary Tim David adds ‘mystery leg spin’ to Australia armoury for T20 WC Super 8

With his batting prowess and newfound spin skills, Tim David is shaping up to be a valuable all-rounder for Australia in the crucial Super 8 stage.

Australia’s powerful batting lineup has a new weapon in their arsenal for the crucial Super 8 stage of the T20 World Cup – Tim David’s legspin. With the tournament shifting to spin-friendly conditions in the West Indies, Tim David has been secretly working on his leg-break bowling, offering another option to the team’s frontline spinners.

Tim David: Power hitter to all-Rounder?

Known primarily as a big-hitting finisher with the bat, David revealed he started practicing legspin in the nets nine months ago. The early results have been promising, and he’s been enjoying the challenge of a new skill.

It gives us more options,” Tim David said. “Just been working really hard on it. Honestly, I enjoy bowling more than just sitting in the field for 20 overs.”

David has been receiving valuable guidance from Australia‘s established spin duo, Ashton Agar and Adam Zampa. He’s also working with bowling coaches to refine his technique and “find his own method.”

Facing the Spin Challenge in Super 8

Australia’s Super 8 group includes teams known for their strong spin attacks, particularly Bangladesh with their rising star Rishad Hossain. However, David remains confident: “That’s the nature of the World Cup. We’ll take him on.”

While David has been diligently practicing against spin in the nets, he acknowledges the importance of staying focused in the lead-up to matches. “You can’t change too much at the last stage,” he said. “Just get feeling good, ticking a couple of boxes, and having fun at training.”

Another crucial factor Tim David is paying close attention to is the wind. The Caribbean islands are known for their strong, variable winds, which can significantly impact batting decisions.

The wind’s really important,” David explained. “You hit it into the wind, it goes shorter. Get one downwind, you can’t stop it.”

Understanding the wind patterns will be key for David, both as a batsman and a potential bowler, as he weighs risks and calculates his options on the field.

With his batting prowess and newfound spin skills, Tim David is shaping up to be a valuable all-rounder for Australia in the crucial Super 8 stage. His ability to adapt and embrace new challenges could be a game-changer for the team’s World Cup aspirations.
