The cricketer of the Australian team, Marnus Labuschagne, expressed bemusement at the T20 scheduling against the India team after 4 days of the World Cup finals. On the evening of Thursday, India hosts Australia for 1st of five T20s in the subcontinent and the 4th bilateral white ball series between the two countries in September last year. The 7 members of Australia’s triumphant World Cup finals have remained in India for the T20s, whereas the opener, David Warner, withdrew from five cricket match series in the 11th hour, and all-rounder West Australian Aaron Hardie came to his place.
Hard to fathom, says Labuschagne
The all-rounders and multi-format bowlers of the Australian team include Pat Cummins, Mitchell March, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, and Mitchell Starc. But they were not selected for T20s because of the overload of work of home test summer, and get underway for next month. Labuschagne of the Australian team, who scored the 6-wicket victory against India and made the unbeaten half-century, confessed that ” it was hard to fathom” because his World Cup teammates were playing international cricket 4 days after the marquee match. It was surprising that there was another match tomorrow, he said.
It is too hard to fathom how players are playing in days. But it is only the nature of scheduling; it is cricket match nature at the moment. We get three weeks till the first T20s test, so we can practice and get ready for the next challenges, Labuschagne said.
The Australian player of the match for Heroic 137 ( 120), Travis Head, who played in the World Cup finals against India, will also play in the T20 Australia squad. But Mitchell Marsh does not tell clearly whether he will play in the T20 series as an opener in Vishakhapatnam.
He said I am not sure if I will play that game or not. I am no selector or coach, but if he plays in the T20 series, then a miracle will happen in the game. On this, Pat Cummins gave a statement to the media in Sydney that I look forward to seeing Travis head play tomorrow. In the T20s, Steve Smith is expected to play as a batter in India, and they also auditioned for a role in next year’s T20 World Cup finals in the USA and West Indies. The new Welshman of New South was dropped from Australia’s T20 squad last year.
