Key Batsmen: David Warner, Aaron Finch, and Steve Smith

Three important batsmen for Australia will be the openers and Steve Smith, who’s expected to slot in at No.3 with Khawaja out of the tournament. Justin Langer has confirmed that Peter Handscomb will be playing and the talented batsman will be a floater and come out to bat depending on the situation. Marcus Stoinis too has recovered well enough to play and will share the ball-striking duties with fellow all-rounder Glenn Maxwell.

Predicted Playing XI

Aaron Finch(C), David Warner, Steve Smith, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey(WK), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Jason Behnrendorff, and Nathan Lyon.

Can the Australian middle-order (finally) stand up?

Warner, Finch and Alex Carey have had such exceptional tournaments with the bat that Australia’s middle-order failures have flown under the radar. The trio has made nearly 60 percent of Australia’s runs in this World Cup. Their fourth shining light, Usman Khawaja, has been ruled out of the tournament with an injury.
