The Aussies have never won T20 World Cup and this will be their biggest source of inspiration. Having fallen before the English team in the last world cup, Australia is on a mission to add T20 World Cup trophy to their four world cup titles in ODIs.
Led by T20 specialist George Bailey, Australia is one of the favourites to lift the coveted trophy. With Shane Watson, Hussey brothers and explosive opening batsman David Warner fully fit and in-form, Australia is a formidable side.
The batting, bowling and fielding departments of the team is enough to rattle any opposition. The slow pitches in Sri Lanka would create some trouble for the Aussies but only after league matches.
The 29-year-old cricketer from Victoria is a twenty-twenty specialist. Cameron White has captained the Australian T20 team in the past and his experience in this format of the game will be valuable for the kangaroos.
With a strike rate of over 146 and the ability to hit long sixes, Cameron is expected to play a key role for his team.
David Warner's quick runs at the start of the innings put the opposition under immense pressure and if the southpaw stays on the crease for some time a victory is ensured. This is not an exaggeration, for Warner has proved this time and again. Warner holds the record of being the first Australian cricketer in 132 years to be selected for a national team without having played in first-class cricket.
Shane Watson is one of the biggest names in international cricket. He is among the few players who have scaled extraordinary heights in all three formats of the game. Watson's ability to play as a proper batsman and proper bowler places him close to the great allrounders of all time. Shane Watson's performance holds the key for Australia in their attempt to win their first T20 World Cup.
Mr. Cricket has been the all weather friend for his team. Hussey plays in all the three formats of cricket and has been the most reliable player in tough situations. A middle order batsman and a useful bowler besides being an exceptional fielder, he knows his job well. Hussey's record in T20 world cup has been quite impressive having made 282 runs with a strike rate of 150.80.
