Lancashire Lightning signs Tim David for the Vitality Blast
Lancashire Lightning is delighted to announce the overseas signing of Tim David, for the Club’s 2022 Vitality Blast campaign.
A batting all-rounder, Tim was born in Singapore and has played 14 T20 Internationals for the National Team, averaging 47 with a strike rate of 159. He has also claimed three wickets with his right arm off-spin.
Standing at six foot five inches, Tim is renowned as a powerful and clean ball striker who is currently playing a key role for Multan Sultans at the Pakistan Super League (PSL), lighting up the early stages of the tournament with a 29-ball 71 against Islambad United before striking the second-fastest half-century in PSL history against Peshawar Zalmi.
The 25-year-old – who has also represented Southern Brave in The Hundred, St Lucia in the Caribbean Premier League, the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League and Hobart Hurricanes in Australia’s Big Bash League – has an impressive T20 record, playing 83 matches, scoring 1,850 runs at a strike rate of 159.
Tim enjoyed his first spell in English county cricket with Surrey last summer – scoring two centuries and a fifty in 10 Royal London Cup matches along with making two Vitality Blast appearances for the Kia Oval outfit.
Tim David said: “I am really excited that this opportunity has come about, and I can’t wait to join up with the rest of the Lancashire Lightning squad for the start of the Vitality Blast in May.
“There is such a strong squad at Emirates Old Trafford and hopefully I can contribute with the bat and the ball to help the team go well this summer.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my brief spell with Surrey and the Brave in England last year and I am looking forward to building on that experience with the Red Rose.”
Head Coach Glen Chapple added: “Tim fits the profile of player which we have been looking to bring into our T20 squad and his addition will give us more power in the middle order.
“His impressive T20 record – both at international level and in various leagues around the world - speaks for itself and we are really looking forward to him joining us in May.”
