The defending T20 World Cup champions Australia, are also World Cup favorites this time. The team has a lot of home advantages because the World Cup is being held in Australia. The Australian team, led by captain Aaron Finch, is extremely strong. They won the T20 World Cup for the first time last year, defeating New Zealand in the final held in the UAE. This time, Australia’s first match is against New Zealand on October 22. Australia has won the ODI World Cup five times and the T20 World Cup once.

Australia T20 World Cup 2022: Players to Watch out for
David Warner was named Man of the Tournament when Australia won the T20 World Cup in the UAE last year. David Warner, who has been in good form in the T20 format, is expected to be the best player again this year. David Warner has played in several domestic T20 leagues and 95 T20I matches. Warner has a strike rate of 142 and a batting average of 33.93.
Mitchell Marsh is a player who can lead his team to victory with both the bat and the bowl. Marsh was named Man of the Match in the 2021 T20 World Cup Final after scoring 77* against New Zealand. With a batting average of 61.67, he scored 185 runs in five matches in the 2021 T20 World Cup. The player batted well in the recent England T20I series, and we expect a similar performance in this World Cup.
The 26-year-old Tim David, who was born in Singapore, is currently playing for Australia. Australian grounds are generally large, so Tim David as a hard hitter will shine in the finishing role. David, who can hit sixes long distance, will cause problems for the opponent team’s bowlers. Tim David has a strike rate of 160.08 with a batting average of 37.57.
