Surrey v Gloucestershire - Royal London Cup Quarter Final

Australia have confirmed their 15-man squad for this year's T20 World Cup title defence, making just one change as blooming big-hitter Tim David earns himself a chance on the big stage.

David has quickly risen to stardom in the past 18 months, having flourished across a number of domestic white-ball competitions with bat or ball in hand.

His rich vein of form and ability to strike the ball like no other uncapped middle-order option has seen David earn a place in Andrew McDonald's squad, with Queensland spinner Mitch Swepson the only omission from last year's trophy-clinching squad at the Worldw Cup in the UAE and Oman.

A spot in the starting XI won't come easily however, with the likes of Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Marcus Stoinis and last year's Player of the Match for the final in Mitch Marsh.

Australia are set to take on India this month, taking their 2022 World Cup squad for best preparation ahead of the October-November tournament.

Opening batsman David Warner won't feature in the fixtures, with Cameron Green taking his place for the matches in Mohali, Nagpur and Hyderabad.

The squad will return down under for clashes with the West Indies and England across Queensland, the ACT and Western Australia.

Australia will begin their World Cup campaign on home soil against New Zealand at the SCG on October 22, before further group matches against England, Afghanistan and two further unnamed rivals pending group qualification.
