Australian Cricket Board has announced Squad for T20 World Cup 2024

Cricket Australia unveiled their 15-man squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup, co-hosted by the West Indies and USA in June. Mitchell Marsh, who led the team in T20s last year, has been officially appointed as the captain, as announced by the selection committee led by George Bailey.

Australia, aiming for their second World Cup title in this format, will be without veteran batsman Steve Smith. This marks his first exclusion from a T20 World Cup squad in a decade.

Smith's recent struggles, including limited playing time in the 2022 World Cup on home soil and poor form against India and New Zealand after the ODI World Cup, led to his omission. Similarly, young talent James Fraser-McGurk, known for his big-hitting prowess, also failed to secure a spot in the final squad.

Despite an 18-month absence from international T20 cricket, Ashton Agar and Cameron Green earned call-ups. Notably, Nathan Ellis joins Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, and Mitchell Starc as the fourth fast-bowling option. The wicket-keeping duties will be shared by Josh Inglis and Matthew Wade.

Australia's World Cup journey begins on June 6th against Oman at the Kensington Oval in Barbados. They will then face England, Namibia, and Scotland in Group B.

Here What Selection Committee of Australia has to say

Selection chair George Bailey believes Australia has a well-balanced squad and is confident of a strong showing in the ninth edition of the T20 World Cup.

“This is an experienced squad with extensive World Cup experience that offers a variety of structures and covers the scenarios the panel believes will factor in the West Indies with the unique nature of the venues and our opponents," Bailey said.

“It’s great to have Ashton Agar back into the squad following a spate of unfortunate and untimely injuries.

“We believe Ashton can play a critical role in this tournament along with Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Cam Green and Mitch Marsh in complementing our front-line attack options.

“The batting options available allow a tailored approach to each venue and opponent.”

While Marsh has been performing the role as interim captain of Australia's T20I side for much of the last 12 months, the T20 World Cup will be his first major tournament as skipper.

"It's been an immense privilege to play for my country and now an even greater honour to lead the squad to a World Cup," Marsh said,

"We have had some strong success in recent times and I am hopeful that will continue in what looks like a wide-open tournament."

Australia opens their T20 World Cup campaign against Oman in Barbados on June 5, before Group B fixtures against England, Namibia, and Scotland.
