Mumbai Indians' hard-hitting batsman Tim David has revealed that 'there has been a good feeling in the team' after they won three of their last four matches in IPL 2022. However, David admitted that MI, who are at last on the points table, did not really have a start until they won their first game.
Mumbai Indians (MI) are having one of their worst campaigns in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this year. The franchise, led by Rohit Sharma, are at the last on the points table, with just three wins in 12 matches. All three wins came in the last four matches as they lost first eight matches on the trot in IPL 2022.
Tim David, who joined MI this year, has been decent with the bat so far this year. David chipped in with handy contributions in all three wins for MI, and has already made a name for himself by hitting lusty blows at the death overs. The Singapore-born cricketer, on the eve of the team’s penultimate league game against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), revealed that they have been feeling good after the recent success.
"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," David said at the pre-match press conference.
When asked about his own batting technique, David explained, "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.
“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.
MI will play against SRH on Tuesday at Wankhede Stadium.
