T20 World Cup: Australia odds, fixtures, key players, T20 World Cup record

Looking to become the first team to hold all three ICC trophies simultaneously, Australia head to the Caribbean and the USA eager to make amends for their T20 disappointment two years ago.

Australia failed to capitalise on home advantage at the T20 World Cup in 2022, having been dumped out in the Super 12 phase, but they have since added the ODI World Cup to their World Test Championship title.

Mitchell Marsh will lead a strong T20 squad in the West Indies and the USA and they find themselves in Group B with Namibia, Scotland, Oman and defending champions England.

Australia captain

Mitchell Marsh

Although only formalised as Australia's T20 captain at the start of May, Mitchell Marsh has plenty of leadership experience behind him at club level and especially in the Big Bash League.

The 32-year-old made his T20 international debut back in 2011 and was part of the Australia team which won last year's ODI World Cup in India.

Australia key players

Pat Cummins

Australia's captain for Tests and ODI cricket, fast bowler Pat Cummins is regarded as one of the best pacemen in the world, while he is also a reliable lower-order batsman.

With 57 wickets from 52 T20 internationals, the 31-year-old captained Australia to ODI World Cup glory in 2023 and was also part of the side that won the T20 World Cup in 2021.

Glenn Maxwell

Australia have an enviable batch of all-rounders at their disposal but few are as exciting as Glenn Maxwell.

With his unorthodox batting approach and handy off-break bowling, Maxwell is a terrific player to have for both disciplines and will be key lower down the order when Australia need to up their run-rate.

David Warner

Only the now-retired Aaron Finch (3120) has scored more runs in T20 internationals for Australia than David Warner (3099), whose experience could be crucial for his country this summer.

Warner was also among the leading runscorers at last year's ODI World Cup, striking 535 runs in 11 innings and he could again shine in the shorter format.

Australia one to watch

Josh Inglis

The experienced Matthew Wade will be first choice to take the gloves at the T20 World Cup but Josh Inglis is an exciting deputy wicketkeeper for Australia.

He was also part of the 2021 T20 World Cup-winning side and he has since shown promise in the middle order, blasting a century against India in November.

Australia's T20 World Cup prospects

It is a dangerous game to ever write off Australia at a major tournament but they will need a significant improvement on their last showing at the T20 World Cup back in 2022.

They were tournament hosts on that occasion but failed to capitalise, crashing out in the Super 12 phase of the competition and missing out on a spot in the semi-finals.

They have since redeemed themselves in white-ball cricket by claiming the ODI World Cup for the sixth time last year and they can boast terrific squad depth.

Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood will do the damage with the ball, while David Warner is a reliable source of runs and Australia have some great middle-order options.

Under the stewardship of Mitchell Marsh, there is every chance they could go the distance.
