Australia is the first team that is expected to suffer due to the lack of formidable spinners in the T20 World Cup 2021. Ashton Agar and Adam Zampa are two important spinners for Australia currently in T20Is. While Ashton Agar showed a brilliant bowling attack this year in the 5-match T20I series against New Zealand by picking 8 wickets, Zampa has been struggling with his form.

In 2021 and 2020, right-arm spinner Zampa managed to pick 14 wickets in 15 T20I games. Moreover, Ashton Agar and Adam Zampa have not emerged as a powerful spin combination for Australia in T20Is so far. Therefore, their spin attack will not favor Australia in T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE and it will be a cause of worry for the team.
