It was surprising to see Marnus not being selected. He has only missed 8 ODI games since his debut with the Kangaroos. Let’s see if he makes it to the world cup squad by 28 September.

Another pressing matter for the mighty Aussies is that their skipper is injured. He got his wrist fractured in the Ashes series this year. But the chief selector is hopeful that Cummins will fully recover before the world cup starts and will be available for the games before the world cup.

Let’s see how these things play out!
