Shane Warne says “They can win the WC” in T20 World Cup 2021. Warne has supported Aaron Finch to lift their first World Cup trophy on November 14 in Dubai. Finch has played consistent cricket in the competition. With David Warner hitting his stride, the team looks like one of the best bets to win the illustrious trophy. Australia’s strategy of using Steve Smith as a floater seems to impress Warne.
“Now that the Aussies have their batting order right & finding form. They can win the WC. I wouldn’t have had Smith in my starting X1. But his role as Mr fixes it is spot on. Lose early wkts he goes in & if they don’t he slides down & the beasts (Marsh, Stoinis, Maxwell) go in,” Shane Warne said.
However, Australia faces a stiff challenge in the semifinals. They play Pakistan, who are still undefeated in the competition. Babar Azam has looked invincible, beating the likes of India. As well as New Zealand and Afghanistan on their way to the top four. Moreover, he will be bright with certainty.
After that, beating protecting champions West Indies in a must-win game. And to progress through to the semifinals. On-Going into the semi-final clash in Dubai. Australia isn’t losing their heads over chances of dew settling within the second stage of the game.
“I don’t think the toss is overly important. Most teams have obviously chosen to bowl first when they’ve won the toss. But the couple of games that I was there (in Dubai), the dew didn’t really come in,” Mitchell Marsh said.
“Obviously, if you can bat first and post a big score then bowl well, you go a long way to winning. We’re confident and now we’re in the semi-finals, anything can happen,” Marsh said.
