Australia Squad for Cricket World Cup 2019

World Cup is not just a cricket tournament. It’s a stage where old rivalries write new chapters. But battles are fought with soldiers. Same can be said for this historic event when top 10 nations fight tooth-and-nail for cricket domination. Each team has to decide 15 men who they can trust to win the title for their country. With the World Cup nearing with each day, teams have begun announcing their squads for the main event. One of these teams is Australia, who have provided names of 15 players who’ll compete against 9 other nations for a chance to be called the best.

Australia Squad For World Cup 2019:

Who could’ve thought a year ago that Australia would be one of the favorites to win this tournament? They hit a rough patch due to the ball-tampering controversy which led to a one year ban on their best batsmen: Steve Smith and David Warner. But now they’re back in action and have made their way into the Australian squad. All the players who’ve succeeded in making it to the World Cup are given below:

  1. Aaron Finch (c)
  2. David Warner
  3. Steve Smith
  4. Usman Khawaja
  5. Shaun Marsh
  6. Glenn Maxwell
  7. Marcus Stoinis
  8. Jhye Richardson
  9. Alex Carey (wk)
  10. Pat Cummins
  11. Nathan Coulter-Nile
  12. Mitchell Starc
  13. Jason Behrendorff
  14. Adam Zampa
  15. Nathan Lyon

Australia’s form hit rock bottom in the previous year but they found their lost form in the series against India where they lost the initial 2 matches but made a strong comeback in the last 3 matches to win the series. They took this sublime form to UAE where they thrashed Pakistan 5-0 at their home. All these accomplishments without their top batsmen. A team which seemed weak throughout 2018 is now one of the most promising sides. Australians are firing at all cylinders in IPL which means that they’re ready for this tournament.

Remarks on Squad:

Australia have selected a balanced squad for this tournament. They’re batting was already impressive but now with the addition of Smith and Warner, their batting might be second only to India. With seasoned all-rounders like Maxwell and Stoinis, the already strong batting has been made even stronger. Australians have an equally impressive bowling as their batting because they have Mitchell Starc in their side and he performed exceptionally in the last World Cup. Nathan Lyon and Zampa will be available to slow down the run rate in middle overs. Looking at this squad, it’s safe to say that Australia might win the trophy second time in a row.
