Australia Recall Their Key Players Ahead Of World Cup 2022
Ahead of the Upcoming World Cup, Australia has recalled four of their stars for the upcoming series at home against West Indies consisting of two T20Is, as they prepare to boost their preparations for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, which they will be defending in home conditions. The two matches will take place on October 5 and October 7.
The series will be extremely crucial for the Aussies and they will be looking forward to getting every box ticked ahead of the World Cup, especially after a 2-1 series loss to India recently. Opener David Warner, pacer Mitchell Starc, and all-rounders Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis have returned to the squad after missing the series against Men in Blue.
Starc, Marsh and Stoinis were out due to injuries while Warner was rested against India. Young all-rounder Cameron Green has also been included in the squad, after an impressive series against India, where he topped the batting charts with 118 runs in three matches, including two quickfire half-centuries.
Though he is still not included in the 15-player squad for T20 World Cup, consistent performances can help Green earn his place there. Right-arm pacer Kane Richardson and spinner Ashton Agar have been given a rest while Aaron Finch will continue leading the side.
Australia will begin their ICC T20 World Cup on October 22 against New Zealand. They have been placed in Group one along with the likes of Afghanistan, England and New Zealand.
Australia squad for WI series: Aaron Finch (c), Sean Abbott, Pat Cummins, Tim David, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Josh Inglis, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Daniel Sams, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa.
