ICC T20 World Cup 2022 Australia Squad: Hosts Australia will have a sizeable advantage when the rest of the world arrives in their country in pursuit of 20-over glory. Historically, the fast, pacy pitches Down Under have sounded the death knell of many a visiting side — especially those from the subcontinent. But that script has changed of late. Sides like India have fought toe-to-toe with the Aussies and emerged victorious. That should give rivals some sense of confidence.
“If the right one don’t get you. Then the left one will,” wrote Tennessee Ernie Ford in his song ‘Sixteen Tons’. These words perfectly define the Australian T20 side. The squad full of proven match winners like Glenn Maxwell, Tim David, David Warner, Steve Smith, and several others, keeps going hammer and tongs at the opponents even when a player or two has an off day. Their proven killer instinct and winning mentality has time and again been on display, and their opponents just can’t relax at any point in the game. All this makes Australia a force to reckon with.
Having hung his boots in the 50-over format, skipper Aaron Finch will have his eyes set on the Cup. Despite a slump in form, his teammate Josh Hazlewood and former Aussie cricketer George Bailey believe the experienced campaigner can turn things around. During the T20 World Cup, Finch will have a mixed squad of experienced campaigners and talented youngsters at his disposal.
The ICC T20 World Cup 2022 starts on October 16 and ends on November 13 with the final at the MCG – Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne.
