Cricket Australia names three Indian cricketers in its team of the T20 WC tournament, Rohit Sharma is not the captain

Cricket Australia has named its own squad for the ongoing T20 World Cup tournament whose final will be played on Saturday.

Three Indian cricketers have been named in the team.

Based on his strong performance with the willow, Rohit Sharma was added to the team but surprisingly he was not named the skipper of the all-star squad.

The other two Indian cricketers are Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah.

The dream moments of the tournament were surely Afghanistan rising and reaching the semi-finals of the marquee tournament.

The South Asian squad won hearts with the players putting up a strong show and beating several top teams including New Zealand and Australia on its way to reaching the super-four stage.

Keeping the performance in mind and the skill shown by Rashid Khan in utilising his resources, Cricket Australia named him as the skipper of their team.

Rashid showed a strong show with his bowling abilities and took 14 wickets in eight matches.

South Africa defeated Afghanistan in the semi-finals to reach the final and ended the team's flying run in the tournament.

Apart from Rashid,  Fazalhaq Farooqi, a promising Afghanistani pacer, also found a spot in the squad.

Apart from Afghanistan, the USA also put up a strong show in the tournament and defeated Pakistan.

The USA surprised many pundits to reach the Super 8 stage of the elite tournament.

Aaron Jones could manage to find a spot in the squad after putting up a promising show with the willow in the tournament.

The full squad is given below

Rohit Sharma, Travis Head, Nicholas Pooran, Aaron Jones, Marcus Stoinis, Hardik Pandya, Rashid Khan (C), Rishad Hossain, Anrich Nortje, Jasprit Bumrah and Fazalhaq Farooqi.
