There has been a slight change in the Australia team announced earlier for the T20 series against India from November 23. The star player of that team, the Aussie’s leading run scorer in the World Cup (535 runs in 11 matches) David Warner will be absent for the entire series. The Aussie Cricket Board has considered Warner’s request for rest. After the end of the World Cup, Warner went home. Cricket Australia has not selected any seniors for this series. Matthew Wade will be the captain of the Aussie team. Cricket Australia replaced Warner with Aaron Hardy.
On the other hand, the Indian selectors also rested the seniors for this series. In their absence, Suryakumar Yadav was selected as the captain of Team India. The Indian selectors announced Team India yesterday for this series of 5 matches. Meanwhile, it is known that Australia has become the winner of ODI World Cup 2023. In the final, the team defeated Team India and won the title for the sixth time.
Meanwhile, India and Australia T20 series will start in two days. Indian players hope to win this series and take revenge against Aussies.
