Australia's squad for the ICC tournament includes David Warner, Steve Smith, and Pat Cummins.

T20 World Cup

Thursday, 19th August 2021


Australia has named a star-studded squad for the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021, with captain Aaron Finch and Steve Smith among a slew of familiar faces returning to the field. Josh Inglis, an uncapped wicketkeeper, was a surprise inclusion in Australia's 15-man squad for the Twenty20 World Cup.

The powerful squad dispels rumours. Australia may hold off on sending some of their top players to the October-November World Cup in order to prepare for a busy summer, which will include an Ashes series against England.

The Australians have had a rough patch in T20 cricket recently, having lost four of their last five series. However, in the three most recent matches, they have been unable to field a full-strength XI and will be hoping that Warner's return will set them on the right track.

"We have some of the best players in the world in their respective roles, combined with the collective experience to succeed against the world's best T20 sides," said chairman of selectors George Bailey.

"Josh has been on our radar for a while now, thanks to his performances in white ball cricket and, more recently, the Vitality Blast, where he topped the run charts. With his adaptability, counterattacking ability, and power striking, he provides the squad with batting order flexibility. He's a player we're excited to see in the future."

T20 World Cup Squad: Aaron Finch (C), Pat Cummins (VC), Ashton Agar, Josh Hazlewood, Josh Inglis, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa
