ICC World Cup 2019: Australia Players’ Rating
Five-time World Cup champions, Australia came to the ICC World Cup 2019 in a bid to defend their title. But their campaign came to an end one step ahead of the final going down against the host England by eight wickets in the second semifinal at Edgbaston.
Australia looked dominating with their openers – David Warner and Aaron Finch doing the bulk of the scoring and well supported by new ball bowlers – Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins. But defeat to South Africa in the last group game, and a few injuries hurt their campaign before the semifinals. Usman Khawaja‘s ouster from the playing XI for the semifinals made the difference as Australia’s top-order crumbled making things easy for England who chased down a target of 223 runs in just 32.1 overs to end their campaign.
Here is the players rating of the Australia Cricket team for the ICC World Cup 2019:
David Warner (9/10)
David Warner has returned to the international circuit with a bang finishing as the second highest run-scorer after Rohit Sharma. The southpaw has amassed 647 runs one short of Rohit at an average of 71.88 including three hundred and half-centuries each.
