Mills made his first-class debut for Essex against the Sri Lankans in the tourist match of 2011 at Chelmsford. He made his Championship debut against Leicestershire at Grace Road in July 2011. His figures in the first-innings were 0–51, but in the second-innings, he took 3–48. During the winter of 2011, Tymal Mills was named on the England Performance Programme (EPP). He began with training at Loughborough as well as camps in North Wales and with the Greater Manchester Fire Department. Mills then went to Potchefstroom, South Africa for three weeks in November on a specialist fast bowling programme. On Friday 16 December, Mills was a surprise inclusion in the 16 man England Lions squad. In 2012 Mills took 5 List A wickets and average of 58.60. He performed better in the Championship, taking 14 wickets at an average of 30.35. In 2013 his form in List A cricket improved, as he took ten wickets at an average of 23.30. However, he failed to kick on in the Championship, taking 11 wickets, three less than the previous season. His performances for Essex earned him another place on an England performance programme, and he took six wickets for the Lions on their tour of Sri Lanka.
In 2014 he joined Sussex. He took wickets at an average of 20 in the English T20 competition, and his pace ensured he continued to stand out. He also bowled in the First division of the County Championship for the first time, taking 14 wickets at an average of just below 35. In 2015 he was diagnosed with a congenital back condition and as a result took time out of playing white ball cricket. He continued to play T20 cricket, and took 19 wickets at an average of 18.84.

In February 2017, he was bought by the Royal Challengers Bangalore team for the 2017 Indian Premier League for ₹12 crore (US$1.9 million or £1.4 million). This made him the second highest-paid foreign player in the IPL behind Ben Stokes, who receives ₹14.5 crore (US$2.3 million or £1.7 million).
Mills was selected for the T20I series against India. He took 1-27 in the first game as England recorded a seven wicket victory. In the second match, too took figures of 1-36 as India made 144-8, which proved to be a winning score. In the final match of the series he took figures of 1-31 and was then dismissed for a duck as England lost by 75 runs to lose the series 2-1.
