Cricket World Cup 2019 Australia Team Analysis
It is difficult to assess how strong the hopes are of the Australian team to win this World Cup 2019. Going with this form, the defending champions must have little chance to be called defending champions once again. It has been almost 2 years since the last time they won an ODI series and in that long time period. They only have four victories and 19 defeats to their name which is the worst in the world done by once best in the world.
Bowling Attack of Australia
However, with five World Cups trophies in the cabinet and an attack with Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins. They simply cannot be ruled out easily of the tournament as they both bowlers are in form to give damage to the opponents’ batting order. It does not need to look beyond the respective XI in the first ODI of the series India-Australia for that in which luckily Australia survived and won the series but that is not going to happen again as the Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan had a century (15) more than all the Australian XI combined. Rohit Sharma (22) and Virat Kohli (39) have more than all the combined Australian team (19). With 14 and 8 centuries respectively, Warner and Smith need to fill that hole to defend the title in upcoming World Cup 2019.
Batting Attack of Australia
There are a lot of concerns about the Australian team, and now it is the time for Steve Smith and David Warner to remedy those problems for their team. This was a team of more than 50 people in trouble before their suspensions, after all, with the pair involved in 10 consecutive losses of ODI before their 12-month prohibitions which cause the team too much.
But the most important factor for Australians could be the return of David Warner and Steve Smith. With more than 7000 runs, 22 centuries ODI between the two, Warner (4343 runs in 43.43) and Smith (3431 in 41.84) are the two most proven batsmen in Australia side and are good enough to take the Australian batting order from waver to the elite. So, with those both batsmen and bowler, Australia has an advantage of most experienced and skillful players that can lead their team to win the trophy 6th time.
