  • Steve Smith Reminds Justin Langer Of Sachin Tendulkar During World Cup Training

It's been hilarious for me because whether on the ANZAC cove or in the lunch room or we're in the bus playing cards, he's just shadow batting the whole time. "He loves batting - he's shadow batting on the sand, he's shadow batting in the shower - I'm not joking", he added.

The return of David Warner and Steve Smith has bolstered belief around the squad that a sixth successful World Cup is achievable and Langer said the pair have slotted back into the team effortlessly.

The team will take on England and Sri Lanka in two warm-up matches before the World Cup on May 25 and 27, respectively.

Winning three on the trot is no doubt unprecedented but such has been Australia's dominance in the tournament that they emerged victorious even in the 1987 edition when they entered as rank outsiders after the exodus of some of their best players.

'There's not too many I've met in my life who like being booed or heckled or disliked.

'It (crowd abuse) may heat up, but it won't be any hotter than it was 12 months ago, so the boys are well prepared.

"You're going to have a pretty thick skin to do well in global cricket, particularly on the flatter wickets and the fast outfields and the big squares we play on in England". Langer said both players were champing at the bit. "What's more, that is inauspicious for other teams, they know how great these sides are". I mean you just saw a 2K time trial, he's in great shape and Dave Warner is always elite fit. "In terms of their throwing they're building it up. I want them to enjoy the series", Moeen told the Guardian.

The Barmy Army provided an early indication of how hard they were planning on going on the pair sharing a photoshopped image of Warner in his Australian gear with the world "cheat" added to the front.

Australia will start their title-defence against Afghanistan on June 1 at the Bristol County Ground. Probably not at the moment but they're certainly working towards that.

Richardson, ruled out with a shoulder injury, was replaced by namesake Kane Richardson, with Starc, Pat Cummins and Nathan Coulter-Nile the other pace bowlers picked.

MELBOURNE (Reuters): Australia coach Justin Langer has defended the decision to leave Josh Hazlewood out of the World Cup squad, saying the paceman lacked match fitness as he recovers from a back injury.

"We've got three practice games in the next 12 days I think, every chance we get to get on a centre wicket is very important for us". We've shown if we stick to the formula then we'll have some success.

The team travel down to Southampton on Sunday where they'll play three warm-up matches, starting with an unofficial fixture with the West Indies on Wednesday.

"But we're really clear on the game plan". Langer believes that Australia need to back their strategy and give their best while competing against teams like England and India.
