World Cup 2023: Australia Schedule, Match List

Australia tour to India: Cricket fans around the world are eagerly waiting for the upcoming ODI series between Australia and India starting from September 22.

Australia recently announced their 18-man squad for the series, and it is a mix of experience, flexibility and talent.

The team sees the return of several key players who were sidelined due to injuries and personal commitments, promising an exciting and competitive series.

Players Comeback:

Pat Cummins: Leading from the front as captain, Pat Cummins is a threat to Australia. His return to the team after recovering from injuries adds both leadership and firepower to the bowling attack.

Steve Smith: The reliable Steve Smith, known for his brilliant batting, was battling wrist injuries but is now back to strengthen the team’s batting lineup.

Mitchell Starc: Fast and aggressive Mitchell Starc had some back and shoulder problems after his stint in the UK. His return brings experience and venom to the Australian bowling armoury.

Glenn Maxwell: Maxwell’s absence due to an ankle injury and the birth of his child was a blow to Australia. His return, now that he is fit, adds a much-needed all-round dimension to the team.

Cameron Green: After suffering an injury during the South Africa tour, Cameron Green followed strict protocols and is ready to play against India. The middle order has been strengthened with his return.

Notable omissions

Although the team has returning stars, some players will be missed. Travis Head and Ashton Agar are two notable omissions. Agar, who had suffered a calf injury and missed the T20I leg of the South Africa tour, was later ruled out of the playing eleven due to pain. He returned home for the birth of his first child.
