Australia’s best possible starting line up - Unified Sports

Australia’s best possible starting line up

Probably no other side has hustled towards building a perfect eleven for the 2022 T20 World Cup as much as Australia. Chasing their second T20 World title with the Australian team, the defending champions will be looking to form the ideal playing eleven. The squad is more or less similar, the only change is the addition of T20 powerhouse Tim David in place of Mitchell Swepson. Backup wicketkeeper Josh Inglis, who was part of Australia’s World Cup winning squad last year, has been unfortunately ruled out of the tournament. In the Australian team, Cameron Green has replaced him in the squad. But not all is lost for the Men in Yellow. Despite injuries, the Aussies will start the tournament as one of the firm favorites—a side that their opposition will be wary of. Australia has some aggressive batters in the squad, like Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, and, of course, Tim David. The batting unit is looking solid with a mix of aggression and experience in the form of Aaron Finch, David Warner, and Steve Smith. They will rely on their big hitter to clear the ball out of the stadium frequently.

Their main headache would be selecting Steve Smith, Marcus Stoinis, and Tim David. The recent rise of Tim David makes it tough to leave him out. where Marcus Stoinis is a match-winner. It’s a tough decision to leave out a player like Steve Smith. But they would have to make this decision; at least to start with. Amidst the selection conundrum, we pick the best possible Australian playing XI for the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022.

Openers- Aaron Finch and David Warner

Australian team player

Skipper Aaron Finch and David Warner are one of the most destructive opening pairs with the experience of 41 innings, accumulating 1544 runs, including four 100-run stands and six fifty-plus scores.

The pair also holds the record for the most unbeaten fifty-plus opening partnerships in men’s T20I (3). Both seasoned T20 campaigners will be key to Australia’s success.

Middle order- Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David

Australian team

The hero of last year’s World Cup final– Mitchell Marsh is an automatic choice at number 3. Marsh has made that position his own, and alongside Finch and Warner, he will form a formidable top 3. As far as the toss-up between Smith and David is concerned, Australia should go with a more attacking option in Tim David rather than Smith. With Marsh fixed at 3, Smith will have no role to play as there’s no vacant spot for him. In an ideal scenario, Australia cannot afford to have Marsh and Smith in the same lineup at 3 and 4 respectively. Smith’s omission promotes Maxwell at 4. Although Maxwell has been going through a lean patch, the maverick batter will still be a sure starter in the lineup. He also gives an extra bowling option to Captain Finch. Stoinis will come in at 5, again an all-rounder who can change the course of the game with the bat and can chip in with the ball as well. Tim David at 6 is the real deal for Australia. If they want to retain their title, David will play a big role in that. The right-handed explosive batter has been a valuable and timely addition to the team. Australia’s middle order is packed with power hitters, right from numbers 3 to 6. The best part about this middle order is that all the batters are versatile, which makes this line-up flexible.

Wicketkeeper- Matthew Wade

Matthew Wade will don the gloves for the defending champions. The left-handed batter has been terrific with the bat at number 7 giving the finishing touches at the back end. In the all-star Australian lineup, the dynamic batter serves as the team’s designated finisher. He also provides a second option at the top and has also opened the batting for the Aussies in the past. Regarding his keeping abilities, the 34-year-old seldom drops a catch and stumps balls pretty quickly.

Bowlers- Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

Australian team

Talking about the Australian team’s bowling attack, they have one of the most potent bowling attacks in world cricket. A pace bowling attack comprising Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, and Josh Hazlewood is certainly one of the most well-rounded pace attacks in the competition. Starc’s express pace, along with Rabada’s accuracy, makes Australia a dangerous bowling unit.

Couple that with the medium pace of Mitchell Marsh, Cameron Green, and Marcus Stoinis and it makes Australia one of the most exciting bowling line-ups in the tournament. Kane Richardson also provides a more than reliable backup option for the rest of the bowling unit. Zampa has been the frontline spinner for a long time now. The wily leg spinner has the knack of picking big wickets at crucial junctures of the game. Zampa at 11 completes the bowling attack and the Australian line-up.
