Australia have been on fire in the last seven ODIs, winning five and losing just two that too against India and Pakistan, the top two sides of the 2017 Champions Trophy. Australia’s 3-2 win over India was unprecedented as not many gave them a chance and now the Men in Yellow are creating ripples against Pakistan in UAE as well.
Not to forget with the comeback of Steven Smith, David Warner, and Mitchell Starc, Australia will only get stronger. But, whom will the trio replace is a question that will give sleepless nights to selectors.
“That is just going to cause a massive headache for our selectors heading into the World Cup. It is a great problem to have for Australia. The guys in our dressing room, and with Steve Smith and David Warner coming back – they are world-class players – we have enough to be adaptable to whatever conditions and scenarios are thrown at us. The guys worked their backside off, firstly, and are now getting the rewards in the middle,” Nathan Lyon was quoted as saying by ICC.
