Captain Rohit’s big statement when David-Pollard comparisons started, said “He has potential. But…”
The match between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2023 was played on Sunday (April 30). In this historic match, Mumbai Indians successfully chased a record 213 runs. Aggressive batsman Tim David made a valuable contribution to the team’s victory. He ended the match with his storming batting. After that, now he is being compared with former Mumbai cricketer Kieran Pollard. When asked about this, Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma expressed his opinion.
Mumbai had a chance to chase down 200-plus runs for the first time in IPL history at the Wankhede Stadium. Suryakumar Yadav’s brilliant batting made this challenge unheard of. However, as Suryakumar Mokya was dismissed at the moment, it was the responsibility of Team David to end the match. He fulfilled this responsibility perfectly. He scored an unbeaten 45 off just 14 balls with the help of 5 huge sixes and 2 fours. Needing 17 runs to win in the last over, he ended the match by hitting Jason Holder’s first three balls for three sixes.
After his innings, he is being compared to Kieron Pollard, former Mumbai Indians finisher and current batting coach. Speaking at the prize distribution ceremony after the match, Harsha Bhogle asked Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma about this. And he said,
“Pollard’s place is difficult to fill. He has won many such matches for the team over the years. David has the same ability. When he plays like that, the bowler feels pressured to bowl against him.”
David is only in his second year playing for Mumbai Indians. Pollard represented Mumbai Indians for 13 years from 2010 to 2022. He played a major role in all the five titles won by Mumbai.
