Australia T20 World Cup 2024 Squad Announced, No Place for Steve Smith and Jake Fraser-McGurk in the Team | ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024: Cricket Australia announces the 15-member squad of Australia Men’s Cricket Team for ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 and it comes up with a lot more surprising and heavy conversational decisions. Australia Star player Steve Smith and Youngster Jake Fraser-McGurk weren’t added to the squad for the upcoming ICC tournament. Steve Smith has played a significant role in the success of the Australian Team in the past few years.

The shocking decision was announcing Mitchell Marsh as their skipper for ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, who haven’t played regular cricket in the past few months. The Australian Team won two ICC trophies under the leadership of Pat Cummins in 2023 and he has performed phenomenally both as a captain and bowler for his team.

The Youngster Cameron Green and experienced spinner Ashton Agar finds a spot in the team and it was a good move by Cricket Australia (CA) as both the players will increase the bench strength of the team. Cameron Green is expected to be added to the Playing XI but he needs to consistently perform for his team.

Australia Continue their Believes in Multi-role Players for T20 World Cup 2024:

The Australian teams have been following a multi-role players strategy for the past few years and it led them to get some remarkable results. In 2023, the Australian Team won the ODI World Cup 2023 and ICC WTC 2021-2023 with the same approach. The Multi-role player is a player who can contribute with both bat and ball, it is quite successful in T20 cricket.

Skipper Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, Cameron Green, and Glenn Maxwell are proper all-rounders of the Australian Team and they will be part of the Playing XI in the T20 World Cup 2024. However, the Indian Team has only Hardik Pandya, Shivam Dube and Ravindra Jadeja in the team who can contribute with both bat and ball. 

Australia T20 World Cup 2024 Squad:

Mitchell Marsh (Captain), Pat Cummins, Matthew Wade (WK), Tim David, Nathan Ellis, Cameron Green, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Josh Inglis (WK), Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Ashton Agar, Adam Zampa.

T20 World Cup 2024 Australia Schedule/Match List:
