“The season didn’t really start for us”- Tim David on Mumbai Indians’ IPL 2022 campaign
Tim David quoted in the Indian Express:
“Kind of felt like the season didn’t really start for us till we got that first win. Since then, we have played some really good cricket.”
“We have won three of our last four games and there has been a good feeling in the team.”
“I spend a lot of my time in the nets trying to hit sixes. I think it’s about putting pressure on the bowler and recognizing the right situations when you can try that in a game,” David said.
“There might be different pitches, or grounds that suit power-hitting off particular bowlers. You have got to pick those moments, and also you have got to be aware that it’s not going to come off all the time, and batting in the middle-order can be risky,” he added.
