Under the captaincy of Aaron Finch, the 5-time World Champions Australia will look to defend their title that they won in 2015 held in Australia and New Zealand. After the ban of Steve Smith and David Warner, Australia had a miserable run in cricket. In terms of ODIs, they were whitewashed by England 0-5, lost to South Africa 1-2.
In Jan 2019, they lost to India by 1-2 which further dented their confidence. After almost a year of their absence, Australians finally found some rhythm and won a series in India in March 2019. The team has been on a high since then. They followed it up by a whitewashing Pakistan in UAE.
With the return of star players, the Australian team looks stronger and could have a great chance to defend their title. They play their opening match against Afghanistan on 1st June 2019.
