David Warner is currently the leading scorer for the team with 446 runs to his credit which includes 2 centuries and 1 half century. He is giving a solid start to the team and contributes most of the time when he gets to bat. Travis Head started the tournament with a blasting century against New Zealand. He is a destructive batsman and has the ability to boost the run rate any time. 

Mitchell Marsh scored 249 runs in the tournament which includes one century and one half century. He is contributing well in the starting and his highest score was 121 runs which was against Pakistan. Also with the ball he contributed as he got a couple of wickets against Netherlands. Steve Smith has had a cold tournament till now as he only hit one half century which came against Netherlands where he scored 71 runs. In the rest matches he started well but was unable to convert those into the big one. 

Marnus Labuschagne has been performing well in this World Cup. With 2 half centuries to his credit he looked pretty good. His highest score was 71 runs which was against England. He got a couple of 40’s but couldn’t convert them into a big one. Josh Inglis scored a brilliant 58 runs against Sri Lanka but after that knock he couldn’t put up a great show with the bat. Most of the time he got out early which needs to be rectified.  

Marcus Stoinis the hard hitter of the team, till now wouldn’t show his hard hitting much as he got out early. He can also contribute with the ball but till now didn’t get any match winning performance. Glenn Maxwell the match saviour in the last match who single handedly won the match against Afghanistan by his brilliant double century. He scored 397 runs in the tournament till now with a fantastic strike rate of 152.69 which includes 2 centuries. A;lso he scored the fastest century in the World Cup. In this tournament he is contributing with the ball as he got 5 wickets.   

Mitchell Starc, one of the most successful bowlers from the team in this format of gameplay, hasn’t been able to perform well. Though he got wickets but was mostly expensive in his spells. Earlier he was well known for his run saving but this he gave away many runs. Adam Zampa, the leading wicket-taker from the team has got 20 wickets in the tournament. He is performing well and withdraws the wickets when the team needs it the most.

Pat Cummins the leader of the team has shown his tremendous brilliant mentality as a player and also as leader. He can play aggressive when required which he showed against New Zealand where he scored 37 runs in just 14 balls and can play defensive as he played against Afghanistan where he scored 12 runs in 68 balls. Also with the ball he has 10 wickets to his and is performing well in both the departments. 

Josh Hazlewood has got 12 wickets in the tournament with the best against India where he grabbed 3 important wickets. He is bowling well with a decent economy of 5.22.
