T20 World Cup 2021 champions Australia will be defending the 2022 edition of the ICC tournament on their homeland and they look more than ready. The Aussies have slowly made their way back on the top to being one the best Cricketing team in the world and they are thus one of the favourites to win the 2022 T20 World Cup as well. If they manage to do so, they will have achieved the rare accolade of winning the title twice in a row.
Their squad depth might not be as much as that of India or England but Australia playing XI is cohesive and strong enough to oust any team in the world and they have proven it time and again. This will be the last time that Aaron Finch leads the Australian T20I side and thus he will look to end his captaincy career on a high as well.

T20 World Cup 2022: Australia Best XI
T20 World Cup 2022: Australia Players to Watch out for
1. David Warner – David Warner was the Man of the tournament in the 2021 T20 World Cup. He redeemed himself in the tournament as before that he was being heavily critiqued for a series of poor performances. He has been rested in Australia’s current tour of India and thus we can understand that the Aussies are counting on their veteran player for a standout performance in World Cup 2022 as well.
2. Mitchell Marsh – Mitchell Marsh was Australia’s hero in the 2021 T20 World Cup final. He was also phenomenal in the rest of the tournament and is one of the most dependable players in the Australia team. He always performs well under pressure and the fact that he can bowl well too makes him a must-have for Australia.
3. Mitchell Starc – Mitchell Starc is by far the best and the deadliest pacer in the world right now. He has consistently been Australia’s top performer in major International tournaments and there is no doubt in the fact that he will wreak havoc on Australia’s home ground. Starc might as well be the highest wicket-taker in the 2022 World Cup.
T20 World Cup 2022: Winning Prediction
As mentioned earlier, Australia are one of the favourites to win the T20 World Cup 2022. They have not only performed well in the last few International tournaments but their results in other ODI and T20I matches have been positive as well. The Aussies have everything that it takes to defend this title and we will predict that they will be winning the title this year too.
