Virat Kohli’s heroics at the MCG were repeated by Tim David in Wellington.

MCG heroics were repeated in Wellington as middle-order batsman Tim David scored 31* off just 10 balls to win the game for Australia. David hit 2 fours and 3 towering sixes in his brief innings and led his team to victory.

David came into bat when Australia were 172/4 and they still needed 44 runs from 19 balls. Captain Mitchell Marsh is with him at the other end. When Australia needed 28 off just 8 balls, David hit 2 consecutive sixes to reduce the situation to ’16 off 6 balls’. The situation is reminiscent of the India-Pakistan match in T20 World Cup 2022 at MCG when Virat Kohli won the game for India.
