The five-time champions are one of the favourites to win the 2023 World Cup in India but there are a few shortcomings that could hamper them
Pat Cummins-led Australia head into the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 on the back of two back-to-back series losses to South Africa and India. Injuries have not been kind with the Aussies with Mitchell Starc and Glenn Maxwell facing the big brunt. However, the much-maligned David Warner has scored few runs and Australia will look to gain from his form at the top of the order. (Full Coverage | Schedule | Cricket News)
Marnus Labuschagne has finally earned his spot in the World Cup squad but a lack of quality spinner would still hurt the men from Down Under. Australia are five-time World Cup champions (1987, 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2015), the most by any country. But with other teams in prime form, Aussies would want to bring their A-game to the fore if they want to make it six World Cup titles.

Best finish at the tournament:
Australia is the most successful nation in the history of the Cricket World Cup. With five titles to their name, a sixth could be on the cards.
