As the Mumbai Indians defeated Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 match on Sunday, Tim David emerged as the match’s hero after smashing three sixes in as many balls. The ball was given to Jason Holder with 17 runs needed from the last over, but the start was not what was anticipated.
After smashing the opening ball for a six right down the middle, David followed it up with another maximum through midwicket. The West Indies international was under intense pressure, and he successfully sent the third ball over the deep square leg fielder for the winning six. Even Sachin Tendulkar could be seen grinning as the audience cheered.
Tim David, take a bow 🔥

Talented teenager Yashasvi Jaiswal’s first century (124) went useless as Mumbai Indians defeated Rajasthan Royals by six wickets on Sunday in the Indian Premier League. Tim David hit three consecutive sixes in the game’s penultimate over.
After deciding to bat, the Royals scored 212 for 7 thanks to the 21-year-old Jaiswal’s 124 off just 62 balls, which was laced with 16 boundaries and eight maximums and a strike rate of 200.
With key contributions from Cameron Green (44) and Suryakumar Yadav (55 off 29 balls) in the middle, Mumbai Indians made a comeback. David and Tilak Varma (29 not out) then put an end to the game as the home team completed the goal with three balls remaining.
David struck three consecutive sixes off the first three deliveries of the last over, which Jason Holder was bowling, to end the match as MI reached 214 for 4 in 19.3 overs and won the match and give captain Rohit Sharma a birthday present.
