The nineteen-year-old sangha was having a breakout season when he was called up for Australia’s New Zealand tour next month

Even so, its 21 wickets at 1666 was not enough for a seat, with Adam Zampa (19 wickets at 1747) and Rashid Khan (16 wickets at 1675) winning the votes

Sangha and Lynn aren’t the only ones who might consider themselves unhappy with the Strikers duo Alex Carey (414 at 34 )33) and Jake Weatherald (401 runs at 3645) also missing, while Marcus Stoinis (396 runs at 3300 ) was only good enough for a place as an X-Factor-Sub

In their place, the coaches agreed to give Hales, Philippe and Ben McDermott the spots while Colin Munro, Glenn Maxwell and Dan Christian claimed the remaining punch positions

McDermott and Munro both racked up 400+ runs and healthy averages of 3654 and 3425 respectively that season, while Christian had the highest batting average (18666) of anyone who hit 200+ runs

Meanwhile, Maxwell scored 379 runs at 3158 with a hit rate of 14356 and threw himself in with seven wickets at 3157 His ability to influence games, along with Christian, gave him an extra boost in the selection

Further down in the order, Jhye Richardson won all eight votes for his 27 wickets leading the tournament by 1325

He was the only unanimous bowling selection, winning a spot alongside Mark Steketee (22 wickets at 21) 18), Wes Agar (21 wickets at 2033), Khan and Zampa

Sangha was the only bowler who took more than 20 wickets and did not win enough votes for selection

“The quality of cricket during this campaign and the strength of this team is also underscored by the caliber of those who missed it, including Alex Carey, Chris Lynn and Peter Siddle, who all had exceptional stunt times”Trent Woodhill, player acquisition and cricket advisor, said in a statement

“This is a team that would be very competitive in any T20 game around the world, made up of strong forwards, top-notch bowlers and strong X-factor batsmen”
