Australia primed to end T20 World Cup drought, says Gilchrist

Australia won 2-0 in India in February before blanking Sri Lanka and the world’s top-ranked T20 side Pakistan at home recently and they have scheduled plenty of matches in the shortest format before next year’s tournament.

“I think they’re probably still working out whether to use two spin bowlers or one spin bowler and a batting all-rounder like Mitch Marsh or (Marcus) Stoinis,” he said after a promotional event in Mumbai for Tourism Western Australia.

Batting talisman Steve Smith is banned from leadership roles until March because of his involvement in last year’s Cape Town ball-tampering scandal and Paine has been credited with helping guide the test side out of the dark days that followed.

“What he took on, when he took it on, he in partnership with (coach) Justin (Langer) and all the players over the past 12 months have done a remarkable job to just get a nice, stable balance back.
