Cricket Australia has announced their squad for the 2024 ICC T20 World Cup, and the fans are excited to see what combination they will see from the Australian cricket team. Yes, the mighty Aussies right now have the T20 World Cup, the ODI World Cup, and the World Test Championship trophy.

Can they do this with this squad? Let’s see.

This is the Australian team that will take on all the heavy hitters during the 2024 T20 World Cup in the West Indies and USA. They will have to break the dominance of the English this time as well.

Surprisingly, Australians won the CWC last year, taking the trophy away from the English team. This time, England is the defending champion. Is something cooking? I bet it is.

Purely based on this superstition, can Australia win this tournament? I mean come on, that will be ridiculous. We will argue with logic. And for that, we have to see the key players Australia is going to have in the team for this tournament.

Key players

The following are the key players for the Aussies during this championship. Can they help the Kangaroos win the T20 World Cup as well? T20 is a different ball game from the ODIs after all.

Mitchell Marsh

Marsh didn’t have an explosive start in this career. Hailing from such a cricket-based family, you may think things were easy for him, but it is the other way around. However, his emergence in the Cricket World Cup 2023 showed the world his calibre as an all-rounder. Right now, he is Australia’s best T20 batsman as well.

Here are Marsh’s stats in T20s.

Economy rate8.34

Travis Head

Head could have been the head of Australia’s batting lineup if he wasn’t suffering from those injuries during the World Cup last year. However, he is completely fit and kicking for the T20 World Cup. His aggressive style is well-suited for the T20s and will make him lethal in the Caribbean conditions.

Here are his T20 stats as a batsman.

Average 27.71
Strike Rate134.15

Josh Hazlewood

You might think Hazelwood’s traditional bowling style is “not fit” for the aggressive T20 format. However, you will be surprised to know that Hazelwood is Australia’s one of the best T20 bowlers right now. His tight line and length, along with the pace variations will be useful for the Aussies in the powerplay.

These are his stats in the T20 format.

Mitchell Starc

If you think Starc needs an introduction, you are not a real cricket fan. However, for the sake of those cricket fans who do want to read more about Starc, there are a lot of new things to talk about. Apart from the pace and swing, and those crazy yorkers, Starc is now the most expensive player in the history of the Indian Premier League. This should tell you his utility in the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Glenn Maxwell

Maxwell is one of the best all-rounders Australia can ask for in the limited-overs. And this isn’t because of his stats and numbers, but because of the impact this guy can create in white-ball cricket. We all saw his exploits during the game against Afghanistan in the recent World Cup. The 40-ball ton should tell you that Maxwell doesn’t kid around when push comes to shove.

Here are his stats as an all-rounder in the T20s.

Strike Rate (Batting)153.29
Economy rate7.75

Adam Zampa

Zampa is one of the best strike-bowler options that the Kangaroos have in this format. He can go a little bit on the expensive side. But Zampa can take those wickets. He had a patchy start in the last World Cup. However, he was quick to become a crucial part of the tea, taking wickets and saving runs.

Best bowling6/19
Economy rate7.37
Strike rate18.4

Marcus Stoinis

Stonis has established himself as Australia’s all-round option in this format recently. He has a lot of experience in this format already and can fit into the team at any position. Do you want him to play fast? He will. Or, do you want him to take wickets and provide those breakthroughs? He will!
