“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," David said, per the club's announcement.

“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.”

David brings plenty of international experience to the Lightining, having featured in 14 International T20 matches with Singapore while also having forged stints with the IPL side the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lahore Qalandars and the Multan Sultans in Pakistan.

"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," Lancashire Chapple said.

"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."

The Lightning, who are home to English stars James Anderson and Jos Buttler, will begin their 2022 campaign against Sussex on May, 28 at the Bristol County Ground.
