Australia’s best chance of winning World Cup trophy will come if selectors dump a couple of big names
So it’s that time again – the one time every four years that we actually care and pay attention to one-day internationals, the World Cup is almost upon us.
Given the current tug of war between Twenty20 franchise money and the grand old traditional of Test cricket dominates most of the cricketing landscape, you could be forgiven for forgetting that this tournament is even happening.
And yet it’s a historic trophy that every country wants to win and given Australia’s glittered history – one we always believe we can win.
With this in mind, attention turns to the squad and what will be Australia’s best XI. Rather than looking at who isn’t there – Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Ellis and perhaps even Aaron Hardie can consider themselves a bit stiff to miss out – let’s look at who is and what the final make-up of Australia’s team may look like.
Starting from the top, it’s pretty clear the opening pair will be Travis Head and David Warner.
