  • Josh Hazelwood might be the unlucky quick bowler among Australia's World Cup contenders

"Our key criteria focused on selecting a pool of players who are going to help us in our ambition to win the upcoming World Cup and Ashes Series in England, and who can also play the various formats over the course of the Australian summer", he added. The defending champions took the tough decision to drop Peter Handscomb and fast bowler Josh Hazlewood from the 15-man squad announced on Monday.David Warner now leads the run scoring charts in the IPL, holding the orange cap with 400 runs, while Smith has 186 runs to his name in 6 innings.Dropping two in-form players underlines both the reversal of Australia's recent one-day form and the depth of talent the panel had to choose from.

Monday was a day to remember for Steve Smith and David Warner.

April 15 started on a delightful note for David Warner and Steve Smith as both of them were picked in Australia's World Cup squad.

As with the batsmen, Australia's selectors faced a bowling conundrum as they target a record sixth World Cup triumph. But fortunately for him, the selectors named him in the Australia A squad for the England tour in July.

Having served their resultant one-year bans, Warner and Smith are trying to get back in the groove at the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).

Mitch Marsh, who was Australia's test vice-captain as recently as October, has been omitted and has lost his CA contract but his brother Shaun Marsh has been retained.

Usman Khawaja who has been Australia's most prolific batsman in the past year while opening the batting with Finch, may now be under pressure to hold that position with the return of opening batsman Warner.

"Mitchell Starc and Jhye Richardson have both been named subject to fitness".

"Given the depth of talent and competition for spots there were a number of tough calls we had to make to settle on our squad of 15".

Hazlewood was the biggest name to miss out with Warner and Smith back into the Australia squad.

Cricket Australia's 2019 contract list: Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Alex Carey, Aaron Finch, Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Harris, Travis Head, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon, Glenn Maxwell, Shaun Marsh, Tim Paine, James Pattinson, Jhye Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Adam Zampa.
