It is not a start that Australia would have wanted in first match of T20 World Cup 2022. It was big lost against New Zealand, now chances of Australia in reaching semi-finals are looking very less. Even skipper Aaron Finch at post match press conference said the same.
For Australia, now it’s about to play the Cricket they are known for and also lot will depend upon other matches of Group 1.
