Before competing in the high-profile T20 World Cup this year, Australia will play limited-overs series against the West Indies and Bangladesh. However, it has been reported that a number of prominent Australian stars have withdrawn from the approaching bilateral series. In similarly, Australia’s white-ball captain Aaron Finch has said clearly that these absentees have a “very realistic” prospect of being left out of the T20 World Cup selection. Let’s discuss, Which Australian Players Are Missing T20 World Cup.
Which Australian Players Are Missing T20 World Cup
David Warner, Pat Cummins, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Kane Richardson, Jhye Richardson, and Daniel Sams are among the players who have revealed their identities. All of these players competed in the IPL 2021 season, but have withdrawn from future duties for their country. Steve Smith, on the other hand, is still to heal from an elbow injury caused in the IPL 2021. Absentees, according to Finch, will undoubtedly be compromised since they will not be in top shape before the showcase event.
“Yeah, very realistic (to miss out of T20 World Cup). You have to go on current form, and you pick guys who are playing well. For guys to be on this tour, to get the first opportunity to really put their hand up and take a spot is what it’s about. It’s tough to ignore really good international performances. So yeah, absolutely, there’s going to be opportunities for guys to put their hand up and take spots,” said Finch.
On June 28, Australia will depart for the West Indies tour, which will take place from July 10 to July 25. Finch, who will lead the side on the forthcoming tours, recently revealed that he had eye surgery to correct his blurry vision. He went on to say that he first noticed the problem at last year’s IPL, but that he is OK now that he has had the surgery.
“I’m seeing them (balls) pretty good now. I’ve only been hitting them indoors on hard wickets. I think the biggest test will come in night matches, that’s when I noticed the biggest difference in my eyesight,” Finch has said.
