The captain of Australia’s 14-man team, which will play the West Indies in a three-match Twenty20 International series, is Mitchell Marsh. After leading the team while abroad in South Africa in August and September of last year. The 32-year-old all-around player now assumes command of the team.
Marsh could be a possibility given his appointment here. Even if Cricket Australia has not yet announced who would captain the team at the T20 World Cup later this year. Not coincidentally, Matthew Wade had skippered the team in the series immediately following the World Cup against India.
Mitchell Marsh Australian T20I Captain
Because of “ongoing minor physical issues,” both Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins. Two other contenders for captain, have been rested for this series. They are anticipated to make a comeback for Australia’s final Twenty20 match before the World Cup. Which is a series against New Zealand.
Senior hitter Steve Smith is also not included in the squad. He was rested following his trial as an opener in the series against India. David Warner, who is still active in this format, will likely begin the batting with Matt Short, who made 541 runs in the Big Bash League this season.
After being rested for the ODIs, Glenn Maxwell and fast bowler Nathan Ellis are also back in the lineup. The team will get together on February 7. Which is two days prior to the inaugural match in Hobart.
Mitchell Marsh (captain), Sean Abbott, Jason Behrendorff, Tim David, Nathan Ellis, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Josh Inglis, Glenn Maxwell, Matt Short, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, David Warner, and Adam Zampa are the Australia T20I team against the West Indies.
