One of the most balanced squads in the competition
Australia has a top squad for the upcoming World Cup. Led by Pat Cummins, Australia has experience and importantly, there is balance in the strongest XI. The all-rounders include the likes of Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green, Mitchell Marsh and Ashton Agar. There is batting depth with the likes of Cummins and Starc.
The bowling unit has some serious penetration capabilities. Adam Zampa will lead the spin attack while Steve Smith will head the batting unit, aided by the likes of Travis Head and David Warner. Overall, it is a serious squad that can go on and win the tournament in India.
