Australia cricket team has to play a 3-match ODI series against West Indies in the beginning of February. Cricket Australia had already announced the team regarding this. Now two major changes have been seen in that team, in which after the exit of Glenn Maxwell and Jhay Richardson, now two new players have been included in the team who have not yet made their debut in international cricket. Jake Fraser McGurk and Xavier Bartlett, who have performed brilliantly this season of the Big Bash League, have been included in the team.
He got rest to manage Maxwell’s workload.
The biggest reason for resting Glenn Maxwell from the ODI series against West Indies is to manage his workload. He was again seen playing in the Big Bash League after the World Cup 2023. Now it has been decided to rest him in this series before the T20 series against the West Indies team. Jhye Richardson will not be seen playing in this series due to his injury while playing for Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League.
McGurk had scored the fastest century in List A cricket
Talking about Jake Fraser McGurk, this 21 year old player made headlines last October when he made the record of scoring the fastest century in List A cricket. While playing against South Australia, McGurk scored a century in just 29 balls. After this, in this season of Big Bash League, McGurk scored 257 runs with a strike rate of 158.64 for Melbourne Renegades. Recently, McGurk had played a brilliant inning of 54 runs in 25 balls in his debut match in the International T20 team playing against Dubai Capitals, captained by David Warner. Talking about Bartlett, he has taken 17 wickets at an average of 14.82 while playing this season of BBL.
