Australia is out of the T20 World Cup and, with that bitter disappointment, the new cycle has officially begun.
There are less than two years before the next edition takes place in June 2024 in the Caribbean and United States.
And although that’s not a long turnaround, it’s long enough that we could be about to witness a major overhaul of Australia’s 20-over team.
Australia had the oldest team at this year’s tournament with only Pat Cummins, Tim David, Cameron Green and Nathan Ellis under 30. Only Green and David are under 28.
Others are believed to be on the verge of international retirement, such as 34-year-old Matthew Wade, 35-year-old Aaron Finch and 36-year-old David Warner.
Wade has previously indicated that he would retire after this year’s World Cup, while Finch has already called it a day in 50-over cricket after falling out of form.
