For the shortest format of the game, Cricket Australia has announced a 13-man squad for upcoming T20Is against South Africa and India and removed the experienced trio of paceman Mitchell Starc, spinner Nathan Lyon and all-rounder Mitchell Marsh.
Australia will play a one-off T20I game against South Africa on Saturday before the commencement of the three-match T20I series against India which will start from November 21 in Brisbane.
Peter Siddle, the experienced cricketer, has also been dismissed to make room for the inclusion of Jason Behrendorff. Coach Justin Langer has high hopes from the young guns of Australia. The squad consists of following players:
Aaron Finch (captain), Ashton Agar, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey (wicket-keeper), Nathan Coulter-Nile, D’Arcy Short, Ben McDermott, Andrew Tye, Billy Stanlake, Adam Zampa, Jason Behrendorff and Marcus Stoinis
