Mitchell Marsh to lead Australia’s T20 squad against New Zealand

Australia has announced its T20 squad for the series against New Zealand. The squad is led by all-rounder Mitchell Marsh who has the experience of captaincy as the all-rounder led the side when the Aussies beat South Africa in a three-match T20I series preceding the World Cup last year.

The squad has some experienced names like that of ODI and Test captain Pat Cummins his fellow fast bowler Josh Hazlewood, experienced batter Glenn Maxwell, and David Warner

Selector’s Corner

Speaking in January, Bailey said a decision on the full-time skipper would come after the T20s against New Zealand.

“One thing we are conscious of is Mitch hasn’t had a chance to work yet with Andrew McDonald as coach,” Bailey said, with Michael Di Venuto having filled that role in South Africa last August while Daniel Vettori will coach against the West Indies.

“New Zealand will be the time when Andrew jumps back in so it will be a good chance to see how those two work together,” said Bailey. “We’re confident it’ll work but we just haven’t seen it yet.”

The Conundrum

The series against New Zealand will be Marsh’s first series as Australia’s full-time captain having led a second string squad against South Africa. The squad also possesses interesting names like that of middle-order batter Tim David and fast bowler Nathan Ellis both of whom haven’t played much cricket at the highest level. One of the questions that captain Marsh will need to answer before the start of the series is who will be Australia’s first-choice wicketkeeper. 

With Mathew Wade also a part of the squad will the team management prefer him over Josh Inglis considering the fact that he is coming off an injury in the BBL and also given the way Inglis has performed in the last six months
