Cricket Australia have added two superstar batters Jake Fraser-McGurk and Matt Short to their T20 World Cup 2024 squad reserves. The tournament will be played in the United States of America and the Caribbean from 1st June to 30th June. 

When Australia announced the squad for the T20 World Cup 2024 was announced, a lot of eyebrows were raised as Jake Fraser-McGurk wasn’t named in the team. The batter set the stage on fire in IPL and his not getting selected surprised many. 

Playing for Delhi Capitals, Jake Fraser-McGurk scored 330 runs in nine matches at an average of 36.66. However, what caught the attention of many was his strike rate of 234.04. He went after the bowlers right from the ball 1 and played brutal innings in almost every game.

But with Australia having packed top-order, he wasn’t selected in the T20 World Cup 2024. However, his performances were hard to ignore as he was added to the reserves and could be in contention to make it into team if someone gets unfit. 

Matthew Short also has been added to the  reserve list for the T20 World Cup 2024. He was the Player of the Tournament in the 2022-23 edition of the BBL as he scored 458 runs and also picked 11 wickets. He also has played 9 T20Is for Australia.

Here’s Australia’s squad for the T20 World Cup 2024: 

Mitch Marsh (c), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Tim David, Nathan Ellis, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Josh Inglis, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa.

Reserves: Jake Fraser-McGurk, Matt Short.
