Finch encourages players to make selectable performances in T20 World Cup squad

Australia’s limited overs cricket team captain Aaron Finch has encouraged players to perform worthy of selection in the squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup to be held in October-November this year for the upcoming tour of the West Indies and Bangladesh. In fact, the Australian team will tour the West Indies from July 9, where they will play five T20s and three ODIs. After this, she will play five T20s against Bangladesh in early August on her own land.

Finch said, “I think on the upcoming tours, the players will have a chance to almost confirm their place in the team for the World Cup.” I think the best thing about Australian cricket at the moment is that people who are doing well in BBL (Big Bash League) and domestic cricket are getting opportunities.

It is noteworthy that earlier this month Australia included six new players in the 23-man preliminary squad for the tour of the West Indies. It has rewarded some players who have performed well in domestic cricket, while also introducing a new face in fast bowling in the form of Wes Agar.

The Australian captain said, “In my opinion it is best for Australia to play cricket and do well, so this is the first time for the players to cement their place in the T20 World Cup squad on this tour.” It is hard to ignore the extremely good international performances. You have to go to the existing form. These conditions will be similar to what we face in the T20 World Cup. St Lucia in particular is hosting a lot and then playing in Bangladesh which is very similar to India or the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

“The team composition can change a lot,” Finch said. It could be based on the ODI World Cup in Australia and I think our team for the ODI World Cup to be held here is really fixed. You will need to reorganize your team to collect more information. The more pitches we play on and the more we play away from our traditional Australian wickets, the more we learn.
