Australia ready to defend T20 World Cup

The reigning champions, Australia, have had a rough run-up to their defense of the T20 World Cup. However, this week’s competition gearing up means that Aaron Finch’s side cannot be discounted. Australia’s win in the United Arab Emirates last year was the result of remarkable teamwork, yet it was ultimately unsatisfactory. Australia ready to defend T20 World Cup.

In the next weeks, 14 of the 15-man squad will be competing at home to try and duplicate their triumph from last year.

The Australian lineup looks solid overall, with only small doubts over Mitchell Marsh’s fitness. In addition, we need to know how Glenn Maxwell, another all-arounder, is doing.

Australia has a lot of depth, so they can afford to lose a few players if they go hurt.

Cameron Green is a brilliant all-rounder and Kane Richardson is a reliable backup seamer, but none of them made the cut. This coming Saturday at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Australia and New Zealand will play a replay of last year’s Super 12 final. A resounding triumph at home, where they had previously been unable to beat the Black Caps. The next week, in Melbourne, may be a deciding match against England, so this would be a huge confidence boost.
