Why not allow Jake Fraser-McGurk to unleash his potential for Australia?

Let’s be frank, we were all eager for it. Almost everyone, except those actively opposed to 20-over cricket, would have relished the opportunity to witness Fraser-McGurk unleash his explosive talent, especially after his stellar performance in the Indian Premier League over the past three weeks. However, instead of staying on for the T20 World Cup following his dominant IPL display, he will return home from India.

It’s rare for the IPL to capture attention in Australia, but Fraser-McGurk managed to do just that. He delivered impressive performances: a composed 55 off 35 balls on his debut to justify coach Ricky Ponting’s faith, followed by a blistering 65 from 18 balls in another innings at first drop. Opening the batting in place of David Warner for Delhi Capitals, he kicked off with 20 runs from 10 balls and 23 runs from 14 balls, before exploding with 84 runs off 27 balls and ending with 12 runs off 7 balls in his final outing. Even in his less successful innings, his strike rate remains consistently above 150.
