As expected, Australia has announced their ICC Champions Trophy 2017 squad early. With no doubt, Steve Smith is leading the team and David Warner will be vice-captain. CA has surprisingly stuck with Aaron Finch as the opening partner for David Warner. Australian selectors have especially shown their interest in allrounders. Moises Henriques, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell are all the all-rounders who would be touring to England. Whereas James Faulkner has been the talking point who has not found his spot in final 15.
