Australia show they are the boss

Canberra: All the teams are busy finalizing their preparations for the T20 World Cup. Australia has also reached the West Indies. Australia played its warm-up match against Namibia before the start of the tournament. In this match, Australia defeated Namibia by 7 wickets with 60 balls to spare.

The team was fielded with 9 players
The special thing about this match was that the Australian team came on the field with only nine players. In fact, Australia, which played its first practice match against Namibia, had only 9 players. Former players and coaching staff members had to be included to complete the playing eleven. Despite this, Australia defeated Namibia very easily.

Warner hit a half-century in 20 balls

In this match, Josh Hazlewood bowled brilliantly with the new ball in the match and took 2 wickets for 5 runs. While David Warner hit a stormy half-century. Apart from this, part-time bowler Tim David bowled the entire four overs and Australia restricted Namibia to 119 runs. After this, David Warner ensured Australia’s victory by scoring a half-century in just 20 balls. Australia achieved the target in 10 overs. The Australian team’s next warm-up match will be against West Indies.

It is worth noting that despite the absence of its six key players due to IPL, Australia showed its strength. The team fielded four substitute players from its backroom staff.
