Australia’s unity will be team’s strength in World Twenty20: ClarkeMay 4th, 2009 - 2:32 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, May 4 (ANI): Australia’s 15-man World Cup squad, due to be named on Tuesday, will include the names of most of the players who participated in the one-day series against Pakistan in the UAE, said stand-in captain Michael Clarke.Clarke is confident that the Australians have gained from being together as a unit.
“I think we’ll have the advantage because we’re playing as a squad, as a team. A lot of these guys are going to be involved in the Twenty20 World Cup and there’s nothing better than playing with your mates for your country. To me, that’s the opportunity that’s presented to us at the moment. We’re doing very well, we get a couple of weeks off back at home then we go as a squad,” Fox Sports quoted Clarke, as saying.
Clarke, however, said that the selectors could bring in some different players in the World Twenty20 squad, as the tournament would be played in vastly different conditions, but added it was always valuable to enter a tournament in winning form.
“England will be a completely different format, but any time you’re winning you certainly take positives out of that,” he said. (ANI)
