Key Players for Australia in T20 World Cup 2024

The performance of the Australian players in the IPL is currently going on, and they are looking quite good. After winning the ODI World Cup, the team is also looking forward to winning the T20 World Cup this time. There are a lot of great players on their team. A big change in the Australian team is that Pat Cummins is not the captain this year; Mitch Marsh is the new captain of the Australian team. 

  • Travis Head

He is one of the deadliest hitters in the game right now, and he has made many bowlers afraid. Many teams are buzzing about his stunning batting performances for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL). In T20 cricket, Travis Head‘s batting changed the way powerplay overs are conducted. Till now, he has scored 338 runs in 8 matches with a strike rate of 211.

  • Mitchell Marsh (C)  

He is counted among the best all-rounders in the world, and he is also captaining the team in this T20 World Cup. If we talk about his stats, till now he has played 176 T20 matches in which he has scored 4228 runs, that too at a strike rate of 132. He is also a fast bowler. He has taken 85 wickets in all his T20 matches, and that too with an economy of just 8.44.

  • Mitchell Starc

He is already an all-time great, one of the best bowlers in the game today and a dangerous bowler with the new ball. Despite his disappointing performance in the Indian Premier League, the 34-year-old’s skill with the ball is evident. One of the rare bowlers who can turn the tide of a match in the opening few overs with the ball is Mitchell Starc.

  • Pat Cummins

Australia’s ODI and Test captain, Pat Cummins, is currently captaining Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL. His team is performing very well under him. He has played 52 matches in T20 cricket, in which he has taken 55 wickets. He can also bat. He holds the record for scoring the 2nd fastest half century in IPL

  • Glenn Maxwell

Maxi coming in in the middle order and scoring runs quickly for the team is very beneficial for Australia. He is not in any special form in the IPL, but he can come into form anytime. Maxwell has played 106 T20 international matches so far, in which he has scored 2468 runs with 5 centuries, and that too at a strike rate of 155.

What can we expect from other players?

  • Tim David

One of the most recent members of the Australian team is a talented player. In franchise cricket, the 28-year-old has become one of the most sought-after names, particularly as a finisher in the final overs. Currently, he is playing for the Mumbai Indians. Tim David has already amassed 1062 runs in 39 appearances for Australia. In his brief career, he has also scored six half-centuries, with the highest score of 92. Tim David is a dangerous batsman because of his ability to strike the ball cleanly and large. His strike rate in T20 cricket is 164.

  • Marcus Stoinis

All-rounder Marcus Stoinis has established himself in the Australian squad thanks to his strong play in the current IPL season. Stoinis has amassed 316 runs in 10 games, including one hundred and two half-centuries. Currently, he is playing in the IPL for the Lucknow Super Giants.

  • Matthew Wade

The hero of the Australian team that won its first T20 World Cup trophy in 2021, Matthew Wade, came in the last over and led the team to victory by hitting 3 consecutive sixes. This time too, the same expectation will be from him that he can lead his team to maximum victory.

  • Josh Inglis

The 29-year-old proved how devastating he is with the bat in late 2023 when he scored a century against India. Josh Inglis is a skilled situational player who can bat anywhere in the order. He is also fairly athletic when it comes to the gloves and is currently regarded as one of Australia’s top wicket-keepers. 

  • David Warner

David Warner, who has been scoring runs for the Australian team for many years, may be seen playing his last World Cup this time. The team will expect a good start from him. Warner is currently struggling with his bad form in the IPL, but his fans are hopeful that he will get back in form by the end of the IPL. Warner has played 103 international T20s in which he has scored 3099 runs at a strike rate of 139, which includes 26 half-centuries and 1 century.
