Australia Could Get Boost For Their T20 World Cup Chances

Australia struggled on their tour of the West Indies, with some of their key players dropping out of the tours. They needed every star who had made the trip to fire for the team. However, that was not the case and they ended up losing the T20 series. Though they did win the ODI series, things did not totally go as per plan for the Aussie side with the T20 World Cup coming up.

They will be hoping to rectify these mistakes ahead of the T20 World Cup that is coming up. All teams will be keen on giving their best in the competition. It is an international trophy that they want to win. To add to that, the change in venue could favour some of these teams that had lesser hopes than others, while the venue was still in India.

The Huge Boost That Australia Could Get Going Into The T20 World Cup

Ashton Turner is hoping that if he can bowl, it will boost his chances of being picked for Australia’s T20 World Cup squad. The player has undergone multiple shoulder operations right through his career. The last one was a couple of years ago. He has rarely bowled since that point.
To add to that, He bowled 14 overs in the last couple of ODIs against the West Indies. To add to that, he claimed a couple of wickets. It was really impressive to see his ball control, something that any spinner would be proud of. He is a batting all-rounder, who can bowl off-spin as well.

With that being said, he looked determined to make it to the T20 World Cup squad for his country. The player feels that if he can bowl, he should get into the side. He said in a recent video, “Bowling is something I have always loved right through my career. Unfortunately due to my shoulder injuries, I failed to contribute much in games. It has been almost two years since my last operation. I feel as good about my bowling as I have in a long time. Although I have not been able to bowl a lot in games, behind the scenes I have been working a lot at training. It is really nice in conditions that suited spin bowling and to be another option for the captain. Hoping that my bowling workloads can increase from here.

“Do not think I have bowled eight overs in a game for more than four years…no doubt that will take some time. Feel like I have done everything. I can over the recent periods and I am starting to enjoy it as much as I used to.”
