2 changes Australia could make for their Super 8 game against India

Australia had to endure a tough result against Afghanistan on Sunday. The Afghans clinched their first-ever win against Australia in this game. Now, the next match for India is extremely vital for Australia. If they do not win this game, they are most likely out of the tournament. On that note, here, we take a look at the list of two changes Australia could make in the playing XI for their Super 8 game against India.

1) Cameron Green for Tim David

Tim David has been a disappointment for Australia in recent months. He has been consistently getting opportunities but Tim has somehow not been able to make the full use of it. The conditions in the 2024 T20 World Cup also do not seem to support his strengths.

Cameron Green can be an interesting addition to this place against India. Yes, he might prefer to bat at the top but Green has experience batting in the lower middle-order, as well. He is technically better and is more equipped to take on the Indian bowlers. Most importantly, he can offer quality bowling, which can help the balance of the side.


2) Mitchell Starc for Ashton Agar

Mitchell Starc for Ashton Agar is one of the changes Australia could make in the playing XI for their Super 8 game against India. Ashton Agar is a threat against only some of the Indian players. Hence, Australia is not very dependent on him to be a part of the playing XI.

However, Mitchell Starc can destroy the Indian batting in the powerplay and it is better to take this risk than to have Agar in the XI. Rohit Sharma has issues against left-arm pacers and if Australia can take his wicket early, panic could set in. Starc does well in crucial matches and Australia will hope for him to deliver again.
