Steve Smith and David Warner returned to the national team as Australia revealed their 15-member squad for World Cup 2019 to be held in England and Wales. However, there were a few surprise omissions as fast bowler Josh Hazlewood and in-form batsman Peter Handscomb were both overlooked. Left-handers Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh have been rewarded for their good recent form by being included in the Australia World Cup squad, while Aaron Finch will continue to lead the team that also includes star all-rounders Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell.
