Australia are entering the T20 World Cup 2024 high on confidence after their incredible 2023 season which saw them win the World Test Championship and the ODI World Cup 2023. Despite only fielding nine players in their first warm up game against Namibia, the Kangaroos emerged victorious by seven wickets and with ease.
