Australia Announce T20 World Cup Squad; Top Veterans Make Return
The T20 World Cup is just a few months away and the teams are getting ready for this major tournament. Many of the teams are being announced and quite a few players have been recalled to action. There have been some ups and downs due to the pandemic. However, most of the teams are getting their act sorted and the players are ready to go.
One such team that has seen its fair share of struggles in recent times is Team Australia. The players have had a poor tour against the West Indies, followed by a shocker against Bangladesh. Despite that, a lot of their first-team players had taken a rest and will now return for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
With squads being announced for the upcoming edition of the T20 World Cup, Cricket Australia also came out with its list of players that will be playing the tournament in UAE and Oman. Some of the veteran cricketers made their return to the squad, while there were a few new names as well.
Below is the list of players that will represent the Aussies at the tournament-
Aaron Finch (c), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins (vc), Josh Inglis, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Marsh, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Swepson, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Matthew Wade, Adam Zampa
It looks like a well-balanced squad on paper, though the competition will be tough. Some of these stars have really produced great performances over the years. On the other hand, some of the others will want to make an impact and win over hearts in the upcoming competition.
It will be a crucial tournament for the Aussies. They will want to declare their supremacy in the shortest format of international cricket with a win. Despite the ambitions, some of the other sides will have a lot to say in that. They will all be keen on lifting the T20 World Cup that the BCCI will be hosting, before the next one that is going to be hosted down-under.
