Dubai: Australia captain, Aaron Finch opined that Australia should not be considered as underdogs as they have a great ability to play well in big tournaments.

"Australia are probably never true underdogs in a world tournament. I think our record suggests that. Regardless of form you go into the tournament [knowing] Australia have a great ability to play well in big tournaments,” ICC (International Cricket Council) quoted Finch, as saying.

 

Finch-led Australia won both T20 series as well as ODI series against India, which evidently boosted the morale of Australia team. The defending champions may not be among the favourites of many former players but their recent series win against India has made them cynosure of all eyes and are being considering as a strong World Cup contender.

Moreover, the Australia team is about to witness the comeback of the banned duo, Steve Smith and David Warner, which will further succour the team with their experience.

Although, the selectors have decided to name the same squad for their series against Pakistan in UAE, but they will have a hard time selecting their squad for the World Cup as they will have to make room for the banned duo.

The first ODI between Australia and Pakistan will be played in Sharjah on March 22.
