11. Josh Hazlewood

Josh Hazlewood (eight wickets in five at 13.75 and 6.87) who was at his riotous best against West Indies, claiming 4/39

10. Adam Zampa

Adam Zampa has not only been the pick of the bowlers for his team but the entire tournament. He is currently the joint second-highest wicket-taker, with 11 wickets in five games at a stellar average of 9.90

9. Mitchell Starc

Mitchell Starc (seven wickets in five games at 21.42 and 7.89) has been no less, operating clinically in all the phases of the game

8. Pat Cummins

With only four wickets in the tournament so far, Pat Cummins has flown slightly under the radar, but the world is well-aware of his match-winning calibre.

7. Matthew Wade

Matthew Wade have given the finishing touches once against South Africa in what was their team’s first victory and will have a similar role to play again.

6. Marcus Stoinis

filling in Australia’s fifth-bowler quota alongside Marsh or Marcus Stoinis, who both have not had much to do either apart from the first couple of games.

5.  Glenn Maxwell

Glenn Maxwell has not crossed 18 in the tournament thus far but has come in handy at times with the ball, including delivering in the powerplay

4. Steven Smith

Steve Smith’s story, but one would suspect where Australia would have been without his crucial anchoring knocks against South Africa and Sri Lanka.

3. Mitchell Marsh

Mitchell Marsh struck an aggressive half-century (53 off 32) to kill the chase alongside Warner. Against England, the unit endured a collapse.

2. Aaron Finch

Warner struck four sixes and nine boundaries in the knock and hardly ever felt troubled against any bowler, even as his partner Aaron Finch was cleaned up cheaply by Akeal Hossein.

1. David Warner

David Warner helped Australia make short work a 158-run target against West Indies in a must-win encounter in Abu Dhabi. He might have entered the tournament with an underwhelming IPL that saw him lose plenty, but Warner has shown he is far from over.
