Australia are not a top flight team that are very good in T20’s and they are either going to do very well this tournament or very poorly. By looking at their group stage you would say that they should get through to the Super 8’s but Ireland could cause an upset and the West Indies look very strong. Shane Watson was rested for the tour of Pakistan and hopefully there isn’t any rust in his game because he’s Australia’s most important player in this World Cup.

Australia v Ireland – September 19
Australia v West Indies – September 22
Australia have been grouped with two teams that can play some excellent cricket when in their stride and I feel that Australia may struggle to make the Super 8’s since they aren’t a strong T20 side.
