Australia Squad for T20 World Cup 2012
Australia’s Twenty20 World Cup squad
Australia squad for Twenty20 World Cup is placed here. Australia may derive strength from past heroics.
Australia enters any World Cup with a baggage of legacy. However, with the charisma of Warne and exploits of Gilchrist now a state of past, they may find it a difficult voyage in Sri Lanka.
Their bowling snake has long lost its fangs and the new breed lacks incisive teeth. Lee is no more the terror of old. Pattinson or Cummins, whoever is selected, should be exciting to watch nonetheless. They have a wily spinner in Doherty who comes with enormous responsibility on helpful pitches.
Even in batting, they might stutter with the absence of Ponting and Clarke who have retired from this format. David Warner is however in McCullum and Gayle league, and together with Watson, forms an inspiring opening combination. Their middle order anchors heavily around David Hussey and the recent blot in Shaun Marsh’s form may hit them hard. It seems Australia is in a transitional phase and is picking players on a trial-and-error format. Thus their T20 World Cup 2012 contention appears resting on shaky barracks.
However, with their scintillating past record in the other two formats, one can only underestimate Australia at his own peril. They remain to this day an exceptional fielding unit and a side fit to turn over a few apple-carts. Australia Twenty20 Squad is placed below.
