Australian cricket team squad for the coming T20 World Cup 2021 looks very threatening. All the Stars are back into the Squad, making the Australian Team a hot favorite of the T20 World Cup. The West Indies tour of the Team will help the selectors to choose the best possible T20 World Cup Australia Squad.
In February this year, Australia lost the series against New Zealand 2-3. The reason was not including big guns in the Squad. Probably, the board was trying to prepare a much stronger backup. That is why they went with new players in the series. But now with the old stars back in the team, team Australia is among the four strong contenders( India, New Zealand, And England) of the World cup.
Australia tour of West Indies will play a vital role in selecting the final Squad for the T20 World Cup 2021-UAE and Oman. The Squad for the tour consists of 23 players. The players also include Steve Smith, David Warner, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Moises Henriques, Alex Carey, and Mitchell Swepson.
Steve Smith and David Warner will strengthen the top-order batting lineup. Both of them have plenty of experience under their belts. The enclosure of Steve Smith and David Warner will resolve the top-order batting issues of the Team.
Eight Key players Are Back In the Squad
Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood are making their comeback to the Team. We all know the competence of all these three bowlers. They have got the ability to destroy any team. So, the bowling department seems to be a destructive one.
Moises Henriques, Alex Carey, and Mitchell Swepson are also included in the squad. Moises Henriques is playing as an all-rounder. This will provide the Team will different bowling and lower-order batting option. The wicket-keeper batsman, Alex Carey, is a good wicket-keeper who can also bat outstandingly.
The slowness of the pitches in UAE has forced teams to pack themselves with quality spinners. That is why West Tours of Team Australia is filled with an extra spinner, Mitchell Swepson.
Every department of Team Australia for the coming world cup looks very threatening. Well-Experienced Top-order, solid Middle-order, Power-hitters in the lower-order, destructive fast bowling attack, and decent spin department make the Team a strong contender for the mega event.
