Australia is on a roll in the T20 World Cup, winning all three of their matches so far. They’re looking strong and have a good chance of winning the whole thing. Their batting has been led by David Warner and Marcus Stoinis, while Adam Zampa has been impressive with the ball, taking eight wickets in three games.

As the tournament goes on, spin bowling is going to be more and more important. The pitches in the West Indies are already starting to favour spinners, and this trend is likely to continue. Australian wicket-keeper batsman Matthew Wade knows this and says the team is already working on how to play on these spin-friendly pitches.

Wade also talked about Australia’s upcoming match against India in St Lucia. He said it’s going to be a tough game. “We’ve all been practicing against a lot of spin, depending on which ground we play at,” Matthew Wade said.

“St Lucia is a good wicket and it might be where we play India, so that will be a challenge. But we’re going to face a lot of spin bowling. The guys have been preparing for that throughout the year, in the IPL and leading into the World Cup. We expect it to keep happening, and on their day, these teams are all going to be very difficult to beat.”

Matthew Wade also said he hopes this T20 World Cup isn’t the last time he plays for Australia. He knows there are a lot of young players coming up, but he’s not ready to retire yet. However, he’s also okay with stepping aside if the team decides to go with other players.

“I play my best when I know it might be my last chance,” Matthew Wade said. “Hopefully I can perform well in the next few games, but we’ll have the same conversation again after the tournament. Some players will move on from this team, and I’m fine with it if I’m one of them to make way for the next generation of Australian cricketers.”
