New Delhi, June 3: The three key players of Australia, who were star performers in the recently concluded IPL 2024 in India, had a troubled journey to Barbados, as they were heading to West Indies to play the ICC Men's T20 Word Cup 2024.

Before their T20 World Cup opener against Oman, several key players of the team suffered difficulties joining the squad in Barbados.

According to cricket-com.au, skipper Pat Cummins, left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc and all-rounder Glenn Maxwell experienced significant travel disruptions. 

Cummins, after competing in the IPL final, made a brief stopover in Australia before enduring a two-day journey to the Caribbean, only to discover his luggage was lost en route.

"A lot of the boys are coming off a long time in India in the IPL, maybe 48 hours at home for a couple of them, so to do something like that is so refreshing," Ashton Agar told the reporters as quoted by cricket.com.au.

"I think mentally once you've done that, you go into the sessions ready to go, because you've already enjoyed what the Caribbean has to offer," he added.

Meanwhile, Starc and Maxwell faced flight delays, resulting in overnight stays in Los Angeles and Miami. Another all-rounder Marcus Stoinis also encountered issues when his cricket kit failed to arrive in Trinidad for a warm-up match.

However, the team did not lose sight of their World Cup goals. The following morning, Aston Agar and four teammates attended an optional training session at Windward Cricket Club, located in the south-eastern parish of Saint Philip.

Australia will open their campaign against Oman on June 6 at the Kensington Oval Bridgetown, Barbados.

Among the few teams that are tipped to win the T20 World Cup 2024, the Australians are surely the hot favourites along with England and India.

The Aussies are known to overcome stiff challenges and hurdles and win big tournaments. May be the air travel difficulty may make them more determined to win yet another ICC World Cup. Because they are the toughest to beat in ICC multination tournaments. (With IANS support)
