Australia announce ODI World Cup squad: Tanveer Sangha, Nathan Ellis and Aaron Hardie left out

Young legspinner Tanveer Sangha has missed out on a place in Australia’s provisional 15-man World Cup squad after impressing on his international debut in South Africa.

Named in a broader squad for the South Africa tour, Sangha has been cut along with fast bowler Nathan Ellis and rookie all-rounder Aaron Hardie, the team confirmed on Wednesday.

Sangha took five wickets across his first two T20I’s during Australia’s 3-0 sweep of the Proteas but selectors have opted to take only two specialist spinners in Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar.
