Pat Cummins To Replace...; Australia's Probable XI For T20 WC Match vs ENG

In a highly anticipated game, England will take on arch-nemesis Australia in the 17th match of the T20 World Cup on June 8 at the Kensington Oval in Barbados. The two teams share a great rivalry and have enjoyed great success in the recent editions of the T20 World Cup. 

Notably, England are the defending champions while Australia lifted their first WC title in 2021. 

Focusing on Australia in this ongoing World Cup, the Men in Yellow got off to a positive start as they beat Oman by 39 runs in the first match

Notably, the Mitchell Marsh-led side were without Pat Cummins in the first game, so would the right-arm seamer, who led the Kangaroos to the World Cup 2023 title return to the playing XI? Here is the probable XI for Australia against England.

In the opening, they will stick with Travis Head and David Warner, the two explosive left-hand batters. Also, Warner is in top form as he scored a fifty against Oman.

In the middle-order, captain Mitchell Marsh will bat at No.3, while there is an uncertainty over Glenn Maxwell's place in the playing XI as he registered a golden duck against Oman

Marcus Stoinis, scored a fifty as well in the first match and we will see Tim David in the lower middle-order position alongside Matthew Wade, who will keep wickets.

In the bowling department, Pat Cummins is likely to return for the crucial game and replace Nathan Ellis. Other than that,  Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, and Adam Zampa will retain their place.

Australia's Probable Playing XI

Australia: David Warner, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh (C), Cameron Green, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (Wk), Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Adam Zappa,  Josh Hazlewood
