Predictions for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022:
The top predictions for Australia are that Australia will play the semi-finals against any of the other teams. The least that Australia would be satisfied with will be a top 4 finish. They have many things in their favor.
Top Performers for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022:
The Big Show will have a lot on his shoulders. He is expected to bat at number 4 his favorite position. He has been timing the ball very well off-late. He can use his “All-out attack” approach to deal with the spinners like Yuzi, Hasaranga, and Rashid. Maxwell will also bowl a few overs in the powerplay if required.
The Big Singaporean has been given Australian citizenship on very short notice, keeping in mind the World Cup. So, if you buy a suit, the suit has to be used. Keeping that in mind, Tim David will have to perform well. He can even be bought in place of Marcus Stoinis. Tim certainly has the potential; he will have to turn it into performance as he plays in a very crucial position.
