“Yeah, I think when we got him (Tim David) at the auction. We felt that in the last 12 months what he has done in the circuit, he has a lot of talent. For us, it was about his temperament and how is he going to handle IPL. Because it is a different tournament from what he has experienced before. How he is going to adapt, initially, I felt it was a bit tough for him and that’s probably why I guess he did not play through the season but we felt that he was hitting the ball.

He is adapting pretty well at the moment so for us, it is about giving him the opportunity and giving him the confidence as well,” said Jayawardena while replying to a NDTV question during a virtual press conference.
