|Tim David Quick Info|

Tim David is a Singaporean-Australian professional cricketer who made his international debut for Singapore in July 2019 in the T20I format and represented the country in 14 T20I matches until March 2020. His family had moved from Australia to Singapore in the 1990s because his father was working there as an engineer. Tim was born in Singapore but the family returned to Australia when he was about 2 years old, in the aftermath of the 1997 Asian financial crisis. Tim then grew up in Perth, Western Australia. This situation made him qualified to represent both Singapore and Australia in international cricket. He chose to represent his birth country of Singapore initially and was even a part of Singapore’s squad for the 2019 edition of the ICC World T20 Qualifier tournament that was held in the United Arab Emirates. By 2020 though, as he began performing well in T20 leagues around the world, there were murmurs that the Australian selectors were looking to draft him into their national squad. Under the rules of the ICC (International Cricket Council), he was deemed eligible to play for Australia despite having previously played for Singapore. Tim stopped playing for Singapore thereafter and bided his time, waiting for an Australian call-up. In September 2022, he was included in Australia’s 15-man squad that was named for the 2022 ICC World T20 that was to be held in Australia in the months of October and November.
