Australian pace battery geared up for the World Cup

With just less than 50 days left for the ICC World Cup 2019, teams are gearing up for the biggest cricket carnival in England and Wales this summer. Amidst this all, the Australian pace attack is also getting ready to go hard in this World Cup.

Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood returned to nets after they improved on their respective injuries. Starc was suffering from Pectoral injury whereas Hazlewood was hit by a fractured back. The supreme leaders of Aussies pace attack are hopeful for a solid return in the mega-event.

Pat Cummins enjoyed a magnificent summer for Australia with immense form behind him. He took rest after just playing a single ODI against Pakistan in U.A.E. Therefore, he is Australia's go-to guy in this year's World Cup.

Jhye Richardson, who dislocated his shoulder against Pakistan in the U.A.E series, is hopeful for the comeback after his medical reports gave positive signs. Whereas Kane Richardson, Jason Behrendorff will compete for the spot in a close battle.

Nathan Coulter-Nile, Peter Siddle, and Billy Stanlake are the other options which Australia can look up to. Australia is yet to announce their ICC World Cup squad and with a lot of candidates for the seam attack, the management will have tough decisions to take.
