The defending champions of World T20 will be heading into this year’s mega event under the leadership of Aaron Finch, the man who won the event last year. Australia T20 world cup wining chances are very bright and they could become the first team to defend their title successfully.
Analysis of Australia T20 World Cup Squad
One of the openers David Warner is in form and but captain Aaron Finch not looking as good force with the bat as he used to be in T20 format. Mitchell Marsh, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis forming the middle order of the Australian side. This looks like a weak middle order as Maxwell, Marsh and Smith have not had much success recently, however all of them possess the firepower to deliver. Stoinis has played some good innings this year in T20Is. Josh Inglis is a backup choice in this middle order.
Matthew Wade and Tim David are two of the finest strikers of the cricket ball and they both have the same role in the lineup. These 2 will be seen in the lower-middle order with the finishing role, and they both have expertise in that.
The pace attack of Australia is probably the strongest which includes; Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins Mitchell Starc and Kane Richardson. Hazlewood is currently No.1 T20I bowler, while Cummins and Starc are too hot to handle in Australia.
With a strong pace attack, Australia also have 2 quality spinners, Ashton Agar and Adam Zampa. Zampa has been phenomenal in T20I Cricket lately, while Agar is also handy.
