The Mumbai Indians will want to forget about this season as quickly as possible, as they had the lowest finish in the IPL this year. MI finished the season in tenth place, having won only four of their fourteen games. Meanwhile, Tim David was bought for INR 8.25 crore by Mumbai and will participate in the IPL this year.
David is known for his big six hitting ability, so when Mumbai offered him a large sum of money in order to utilize him as a replacement for Hardik Pandya, it raised some concerns. He batted down the order and scored 186 runs in eight innings, averaging 37.2 and striking out at a rate of 216.28.
When asked about the season as a whole, David stated that there were many difficult occasions that were really frustrating. "We weren't receiving the results we were looking for right away." It was a difficult season for him because it was his first time in India."
"When you first arrive in a new place, you don't know many individuals. "As the competition progressed, things with the group became more comfortable," he remarked.
He also lauded Ishan Kishan, Tilak Varma, and Ramandeep Singh, three promising Indian actors. "These boys are all future players with whom I can always have a little fun."
"I'm hoping to be more steady at the crease coupled with more controlled swings," David remarked when asked about his batting progress. It has aided me in becoming more stronger. Overall, it's been a great period of growth for me, as well as some field experience."
