Australia have chosen their 15 member squad for the World T20
. It is the same 15 that will take on Pakistan in UAE. Gearge Bailey will captain the side that includes Glen Maxwell as the only uncapped player and the 41 year old Brad Hogg who made a comeback in the Big Bash League.
David Warner, Shane Watson, Matthew Wade (wk), David Hussey, Michael Hussey, George Bailey (capt), Cameron White, Daniel Christian, Glenn Maxwell, Brad Hogg, Xavier Doherty, Clint McKay, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Ben Hilfenhaus.
The team looks quite good. It seems to be a mix of experience, youth and a 40+ cricketer. George Bailey will be in the hot seat. Perhaps his namesake's Irish cream bottle would do him good. Since the World Cup will be held in Sri Lanka, their spinners will have a huge task, especially since the fast bowling unit looks a bit inexperienced.
