AUS vs SL 2022: Cricket Australia named 16 man Squad for the five match T20I Series

AUS vs SL 2022: Cricket Australia named a 16 man squad for their five-match T20I series against Sri Lanka beginning next month. Ben McDermott who has been named as the BBL Player of the tournament has received a call-up to Australia’s T20I squad.  Ashes fame Travis Head along with Moises Henqirues & Jhye Richardson has also been included in Australia’s T20I Squad.

David Warner & Mitchell Starc who starred in Australia’s T20 World Cup triumph in the UAE will be rested for the Sri Lanka T20Is. Australia’s Head Coach Justin Langer along with support staff will miss the five-match T20I series against Sri Lanka with Andrew McDonald taking up coaching responsibilities in Langer’s absence. Josh Hazlewood will make a comeback to Australia’s T20I squad after featuring in just one Ashes Test due to a side injury.

The other players who constitute Australia’s bowling attack are Pat Cummins & Mitchell Starc along with white ball specialists Kane Richardson & Adam Zampa.

“This squad will begin preparation for the ICC T20 World Cup defense at home later this year and includes several players who have an early chance to impress in these five matches against a quality opposition,” national selector George Bailey said.
