Defending champion, Australia, became the second team to announce their cricket world cup 2019 player list. David Warner and former Australian captain Steve Smith will be back in the team for the event after their respective year-long ban. They have not played any international cricket since March 2018 after their ball tampering incident.
ICC world cup 2019 Australian squad is equipped with five pacers including Mitchell Starc, Jason Behrendorff, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Jhye Richardson along with two spinners, Adam Zampa, and Nathan Lyon. Josh Hazlewood, another Austrian pacer who got injured during test series against India, was not selected as he is still working on his fitness. Starc and Richardson are included in the 15 member squad however their involvement in the event is subject to their recovery from injuries.
Alex Carey will be the wicket-keeper whereas all-rounder position will be filled with Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell. Aaron Finch will captain the team with Shaun Marsh, Usman Khawaja and Steve Smith as batting specialists. The most surprising omission from the squad was right-handed batsman, Peter Handscomb, who played some tremendous innings including 117 in Mohali which paved the way for Australia’s highest ODI chase ever in India. Handscomb, who is also a backup wicket-keeper, was left out because of the endless supply of top order batsmen. Young all-rounder Ashton Turner who recently made his debut was also missed out in squad.
