In DC vs MI Man of the Match Tim David said: “It’s nice to finish with a win. It’s a good feeling. We got close the other night. We can’t ask for much more than to finish with a win. Ishan as he walked off, he said to me, ‘The wicket’s gotten flatter.’ So it was holding a little bit with the slower balls but you just have to hold your shape, back your game, keep it simple. I think there was a couple of baby sixes today so I got away with a couple,” David said
And then when he was asked about being an ex-RCB player, David said:
“I got a message from Faf this morning. It was a picture of him, Maxi and Virat all in MI kit. Maybe I’ll have to post to Instagram later.”
