Aaron Finch has been named the captain of the Australian team whereas star all rounder Pat Cummins has been named the vice captain of the team. Australia Squad for T20 World Cup 2021 is studded with star players and there is huge probability that Finch leading side might get their hands on the trophy this time.
Australia will be looking forward to win their first Men’s T20 World Cup trophy. Although it has not been a good time for the Australians in the past few months of T20 cricket. They have lost each of their past five series. The recent T20 series defeat came against Bangladesh.
Big names like Aaron Finch, David Warner, Glenn Maxwell and Steve Smith will return in the Australian squad. The most surprising name in Australia Squad for T20 World Cup 2021 is Josh Inglis. He is an uncapped player and plays as a wicketkeeper-batter who is capable of playing both as an opener and in the middle order. Inglis has come forward by defeating both Alex Carey and Josh Philippe to the role of reserve keeper after both men featured in Austalia’s tour of the Caribbean and Bangladesh.
Alex Carey, Josh Philippe, Moises Henriques, Ashton Turner and Andrew Tye are some of the surprising names to be left out of the 15-member squad.
