World Cup 2023: Aussies to make last minute changes to their squad

Injuries have become a part of most of the team just before the arrival of the World Cup in 2023. With India making end-of-moment changes, Australia faces the same problem. Australia will miss their experienced spinner, Ashton Agar, because of a calf injury.

Agar’s recent ODI appearance was against South Africa in Bloemfontein, but the spinner failed to deliver the best for his team. He lacked performance because of his lingering calf injury, which resulted in his being ruled out of the main event. However, experienced batter Marnus Labuschagne will replace Ashton Agar in the 2023 World Cup.


Labuschagne was not included in the original squad, but his recent form in the 50-over format against South Africa made the selectors change their minds.

All the countries participating in the World Cup had to submit their final squad of 15 to the ICC before September 28, 2023. Moreover, changes in the team after the submission date will only be allowed with permission from tournament organizers.

Current Australia World Cup Squad:

Pat Cummins (c), Steve Smith, Alex Carey, Josh Inglis, Sean Abbott, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Mitch Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Adam Zampa, and Mitchell Starc
