Warner and Smith will make a come back to the Australian side after a long gap, as they were suspended due to ball tampering case during a test series in South Africa last year. The right-handed Australian batsman Peter Handscomb could not make it to the 15 member squad for ICC World Cup 2019 which came as a shocker as he was in great form and had a wonderful series against India this year. Even the Australian pacer Josh Hazlewood would not be seen in the upcoming Cricket World Cup. The axing of Australian batsman Handscomb indeed was a tough call for Australia Cricket as he had an average of 43 in 13 games this year, including a superb maiden one-day hundred in India. The left-handed Australian batsmen Usman Khawaja made it to the squad for the World cup due to his excellent batting in recently concluded series against India and Pakistan. Alex Carey will be the sole wicket-keeper for the Australian team in their world cup campaign.
