Australia in West Indies 2021 – Ashton Agar


The allrounder spent time working on his lower-order hitting ahead of the West Indies tour

Ashton Agar’s primary role in Australia’s T20I team is with the ball, but he knows contributing with the bat is key to the balance of the side and adds to his value.

Though he opened in the first intra-squad match on Monday – falling to Josh Hazlewood for 6 – Agar primarily finds himself around No. 7 in the order when part of a full team and admitted it’s a role he has found “quite hard” with usually only a few deliveries to make an impact and a requirement to find the boundary straightaway. His T20I strike-rate is underwhelming at 112.82 and exactly how he fits into the middle order is part of one of the key questions facing the Australia side in the lead-up to the T20 World Cup.
