Team Australia is now planning for an experimental drop down of striking order for David Warner in the worldT20 platform, who is better known to be the opener through his career.
Warner has ruled the international cricket platform as a perfect opener since years but now sources are pointing towards the shifting of the vice-captain at the possible 3rd or 4th position of the batting line up in the Indian event next month.
The mighty Shane Watson and the rising star Usman Khawaja will be the openers for the T20 world cup. The versatility of David Warner is to be utilised at the mid-term batting line up, to ensure that the team is sharp enough to perform from all sides.
This roll down order can be a drastic change for the team but may be this is the key to alter the record for the team as they have never won the world T20 title.
But keeping all the emotions aside, what the experts can see is the right and left hand combination must be kept same to build up pressure on the opponent. In that case, David warner and Steve Smith will be coming freely to replace Usman Khawaja and Shane Watson respectively.
The team has some brilliant openers but to keep on the flow of runs it is needed to carry forward the potential during the mid-stream. That is why the selectors have settled such an arrangement.
Team Australia already have flew to South Africa for a head-on with the team Proteus. Three warm up internationals are to be played there from 4th of March in Durban.
This 29 year old cricket sensation managed to hit the victory stands as a T20 smasher from his debut at early 2007. From there he became a valuable addition to the team and raised a strong name to deal with the glory of the Australian openers.
Though it will be very odd not to see Warner at the first place, but if some people have any doubt on his performance as a mid-way hitter then they must recall his early matches where he did not play as the openers but still he became the star, even when he played 6th in the 2013 test series, he made his versatility clear to everyone.
Players except David Warner, have also played significant role to gift the Australian team its present glory. All-rounders such as Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Marsh, James Faulkner, better known as the game finisher, these are Australia’s building blocks. The names are perfect for the roaring progress in the mid-list of the team.
After the overall queries, the next probable Australian XI are formed to be:
Shane Watson, Usman Khawaja, David Warner, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Marsh, James Faulkner, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa, Peter Nevill, Josh Hazlewood.
