“Australia are yet to fix their best playing XI” – Brad Haddin
Australia assistant coach Brad Haddin says that Australia have yet to settle on a best playing XI after the injury of all-rounder Marcus Stoinis.
“Right now despite everything we’re trying to find that best XI,” Haddin said. “Marcus has tossed a spanner into everything there with his injury and how significant an allrounder he is. We’re still trying to find what best works for us. Come later in the tournament, we’ll begin to comprehend what the conditions resemble significantly better and what is our best XI,” the former Australian wicket-keeper said.
Haddin also confirmed that the unsettlement in the playing XI hadn’t been a worry at all for the team as they had to be flexible throughout the tournament to win their sixth World Cup trophy. “The players get that and we’re preparing them likewise,” he said. “I think one of the luxuries right now is we’re still winning, despite everything we haven’t found the ideal rhythm for our game, which is a hazardous sign pushing ahead.”
Australia played with two different playing XI after Stoinis got injured. They left out their frontline spinners in the previous two matches and played with four frontline pacers with all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, captain Aaron Finch himself as a fifth bowler.
Australia are currently at no. 1 position in the point table and will face Bangladesh to hold their position on Thursday, June 20 at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
