Melbourne: There is very little time left in the T20 World Cup 2021. The T20 World Cup will begin on UAE soil from October 17, with the final match to be played on November 14. Australia has announced its team for the T20 World Cup 2021. More than one explosive batsmen and deadly bowlers have been given place in Australia’s T20 team, making the Kangaroo team a strong contender to win the T20 World Cup this year. Steve Smith, David Warner and Pat Cummins have returned to Australia’s T20 team.
Australian team announced for T20 World Cup
Australia’s 15-man squad announced for the T20 World Cup has a good balance of fast bowlers, spinners and aggressive batsmen. Steve Smith, David Warner and Pat Cummins withdrew from limited overs tours of West Indies and Bangladesh. Australia have included Josh Inglis as a backup for wicketkeeper Matthew Wade. Inglis was preferred over Alex Carey and Josh Philippe, while he has not played a single international match so far.
Other teams will be afraid of these players
Australia, which is a five-time champion and runner-up twice in the ODI World Cup, has not yet won the T20 World Cup and this time it would like to remove the tension. Steve Smith has been kept in the squad despite an elbow injury while limited overs captain Aaron Finch, who underwent knee surgery, will be fit for the tournament. Dan Christian, Nathan Ellis and Daniel Sams will accompany the team as reserve players. Looking at the UAE’s pitches which are helpful to the spinners, three spinners have been given place in the form of Ashton Agar, Mitchell Swepson and Adam Zampa.
