t20 world cup: jake fraser-mcgurk expected to travel with australian team as reserve

The ICC T20 World Cup is knocking on the door. This edition of the T20 World Cup will be jointly hosted by the USA and the West Indies.

In every season of the IPL, some players manage to stamp their authority and Jake Fraser-McGurk is one such name. The devastating Delhi Capitals opener smashed 330 runs in just nine matches and took very little time to announce his arrival on the grand stage. The expectation was that the player would earn a place in Australia’s T20 World Cup squad but to everyone’s surprise he missed the cut as Australia named a 15-member squad for the T20 World Cup.

But it has now emerged the player is likely to join the squad as a travelling reserve. As reported by the Sydney Morning Herald, the Australia Cricket Board are set to pick up two reserves and the Delhi Capitals star is certainly going to be one of them.

David Warner is currently suffering from bone bruising in his hand while captain Mitchell Marsh is battling a hamstring injury. Fraser-McGurk already showed what he is capable of and if given the chance he will mostly make use of the opportunities that come towards him.

McGurk had a similar experience with his IPL franchise as the 22 year old was not picked up by any franchise in the IPL auction last year. It was DC coach Ricky Ponting who suggested his name and he was later brought in by the franchise as a substitute for South African fast bowler Lungi Ngidi.

McGurk has already generated enough buzz in the IPL circuit and if he is not retained by the Capitals there won’t be a dearth of suitors for him in the next mega auction.

The young Australian recently addressed the selection debate as he explained the current scenario in the Australian team.

On the Willow Talk podcast, he said, “You’ve got David Warner, our best opener in three formats, you’ve got Travis Head, who is lighting it up over here [at the IPL] and has lit it up the past 18 months, and Mitch Marsh is the same, and he’s also the captain.

“I can’t really see myself batting at five or six because we’re pretty set there with Tim David, Cam Green; those sorts of guys. The way I think about it is that’s fine, there’s hopefully going to be more time for that [World Cup appearances].”
