Everything You Need To Know About Australia Squad for T20 World Cup 2021

The ICC has declared the detailed schedule for the forthcoming T20 World Cup that will be conducted from 17th October to 14th November 2021 in the United Arab Emirates and Oman. Currently, the Australian team is going through a rough phase. Despite their constant changes and efforts on the field, the team displayed a poor performance and thus, received criticism from the experts and fans alike. Remarkably, the Australian team was defeated in the past five T20 International series. The corresponding matches were played against Bangladesh, India, New Zealand, West Indies, and England.

The Australian squad will be led by Aaron Finch in the upcoming T20 World Cup. Moreover, this team is positioned in Group A. That is going to be quite challenging for the team that has struggled in the recent past. Group A comprises some strong teams like South Africa, England, and West Indies, alongside Australia. All these teams possess outstanding skills to succeed in the shortest format of the game. West Indies and England can be huge competitors for Australia in the group stage of the T20 World Cup.

Team Australia will begin their campaign in this upcoming world cup with a match against South Africa. Names of prominent batsmen in the Australian team include Glenn Maxwell, David Warner, and Steve Smith while the bowling is spearheaded by the likes of Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, and Adam Zampa. With some big names and a balanced team, Australia would love to redeem their poor performances in the past and put up a good show in the forthcoming T20 World Cup. Furthermore, the captain, Aaron Finch, is quite hopeful to regain their winning form. Remarkably, the Australian team has never won the T20 World Cup to date. Thus, they are certain to focus on winning their maiden T20 World Cup. With the assistance of the senior members in the squad and under the expert guidance of the captain, the team will try to reach the finals.
