#2 Powerful openers

Australia are blessed with an opening combination that’s ideal for this format. Captain Aaron Finch and David Warner complement each other incredibly well, and the fact that one is right-and the other left-handed helps them demoralize most bowling attacks.

Finch is one of the successful openers in this format, and when in form he usually carries his momentum right through the tournament. His partner in crime Warner is a more sedate batsman nowadays, as he paces his innings to perfection and also picks the right bowlers to go after.

Along with the power the openers possess, it's their ability to run quickly between the wickets that makes them extra special. Having played their cricket on bigger grounds right from a young age, these two know the angles very well and regularly convert the ones into twos, which puts pressure on the bowlers throughout.
