Josh Inglis is ruled out due to injury, Cameron Green replaces him in the squad.
When it comes to World Cup cricket no doubt Aussies are always one step ahead of the rest. If we have to find a burning example of the phrase ‘ Big teams rise on Big Occassions’, then undoubtedly one name comes to our mind. It is Australia. They are always sensational when it comes to any ICC event. Without any doubt this year also they are one of the big favorites to write their name on the surface of the Trophy. The tournament is taking place in Australia, which adds a great boost to their opportunities.
Aussies are 5-time ICC ODI World Cup champions and 1-time ICC T20 World Cup Winners. It is the highest among any Cricketing Nation. They are often renowned as the ‘ Brazil of Cricket’ based on their superiority in ICC events. They won the ODI World Cup in 1987, 1999,2003,2007, and 2015. They have won their only T20 Title last year in 2021 defeating New Zealand in the Final.
Australian squad for T20 World Cup 2022:
Aaron Finch(c), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Tim David, Josh Hazlewood, Cameron Green, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Mathew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa.
Possible Playing XI
Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Jos Hazlewood.
Experts are calling Tim David to be the X factor of the Team. Thu Aussie hard hitter has the potential to single-handedly change the scenario of the game. The middle order looks extremely solid with big names like Marsh, Maxwell, Wade, David, and Stoinis . Warner Finch pair will start the proceedings. The Aussie bowling attack is also one of the deadliest bowling attacks with names like Cummins, Starc, Hazlewood, and Zampa.
Aussies will start their campaign on October 22 against New Zealand at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
