David Warner’s form is a welcome sign for Australia. Mitchell Marsh is the game-changer for them with both bat as well as the ball along with Glenn Maxwell.
Adam Zampa is the key bowler. He has done well so far in the middle overs where he has choked runs and picked wickets. Josh Hazlewood will be crucial
