Australia picks pace quartet for Champions Trophy

Australia picks pace quartet for Champions Trophy

Australia has picked four fast bowlers – Mitchell Starc, James Pattinson, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins in its 15-man Champions Trophy squad. It has, however, dropped all-rounder James Faulkner, the man-of-the match from its triumph in the 2015 World Cup final against New Zealand.

Australian selector Trevor Hohns referred to the four quicks as a “fast-bowling artillery” and “a very exciting proposition for Australian cricket.

” Starc returned early from Australia’s tour of India with a stress fracture in his right foot, but Hohns said he was confident the left-arm opening bowler would be fit to play in the June 1st to 18th tournament in England.

Big-hitting batsman Chris Lynn, sidelined for two months recently with a neck and shoulder injury, has also been included in the squad.

Australia joins England, Bangladesh and New Zealand in Group A, while defending champion India is pooled with South Africa, Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Group B.
