Australia uses their proven formula at the T20 World Cup

All major cricket titles are held by Australia, except the men's T20 World Cup.

Australia is about to accomplish a cricket feat never seen before. Between their men's and women's teams, they will hold every major cricket trophy if they win the men's T20 World Cup.

They are the current World Test champions, the men's and women's 50-over world champions, and the women's team also won the most recent T20 World Cup.

After a 12-month trial period, Mitchell Marsh will take over as captain of the team. He will be looking to duplicate the success Pat Cummins had in the 50-over event held in India less than a year prior. The roster is centred around a similar core of players to the ones that won the trophy in Ahmedabad, and there haven't been many changes despite the shift in leadership.

Australia will be a formidable team even if they have only won one of the eight T20 World Cup competitions thus far—that one being a tournament that was impacted by COVID and took place in Oman and the United Arab Emirates. For Australian great David Warner, it will also be his farewell match as he gets ready to play his last international if his damaged finger heals before the tournament.

The Indian Premier League has seen participation from Travis Head, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green, and Marcus Stoinis. Starc and Cummins played in the final, which is encouraging for their match readiness.

The remaining players' preparation for the competition has been somewhat hampered. With just nine players available, coaches had to take the field during their warm-up against Namibia. Despite this, the Australians easily defeated Namibia by seven wickets.

They will be among the favourites in the US and the Caribbean, and given their recent form, they will be hard to stop—especially since for many of them, this may be their last ICC tournament.
