The Australian team looks like a balanced side in the World Cup with a robust batting and bowling line-up. They won their first match in the tournament against Afghanistan by 7 wickets and their second one against the Windies by 15 runs. The defending champions will look forward to register their third win against the Men in Blue today. Let’s have a look at their key players

Mitchell Starc- Mitchell Starc can be a major threat to any opposition in the tournament. He had a tremendous start to his World Cup 2019 journey and claimed 5 crucial wickets against the Windies in his second match of the tournament. In his 10 overs spell, he picked up 5 wickets and gave only 46 runs. Starc was also the X-factor in the team’s 2015 triumph and was named the Man of the Tournament for his consistency and exceptional bowling skills.

Steve Smith- After returning to the team post his one year ban from International cricket, Smith will play a crucial role in the team. In the previous match against the Windies, Smith scored 73 runs off 103 deliveries with a strike rate of 70.87. With the return of Smith and David Warner in the team, the Australian team looks exceptionally robust in their batting department.

Pat Cummins- This Australian bowler has been consistent with his bowling in the tournament. He picked up 3 wickets against the Afghans in their first match and claimed 2 in the next match against the Windies. He was also the team’s most economical bowler and gave away only 41 runs in 10 overs.
