He has been one of the most destructive batters in the T20 format. Many former cricketers and cricket pundits have dubbed him the “next T20 superstar” and urged Cricket Australia to select him. On the other hand, David has also revealed his desire to play for Australia in the upcoming T20I World Cup.

In his latest interaction with BT Sports, the hard-hitting batter said that Australia won the last T20 World Cup six months ago and since then the team hasn’t changed. He also added that playing in T20 leagues all over the world has given him more confidence. But international cricket is a different ball game altogether.
