Ricky Ponting served Australia's first captain Twenty20 Internationals.

Since their first match in 2005, 57 players have represented Australia in Twenty20 Internationals. A Twenty20 International is an international cricket match between two representative teams of ODI status, as determined by the International Cricket Council (ICC). A Twenty20 International is played under the rules of Twenty20 cricket. The list is arranged in the order in which each player won his first Twenty20 cap. Where more than one player won his first Twenty20 cap in the same match, those players are listed alphabetically by surname.

Australia have played 47 matches, winning 24 and losing 21; one ended in a no result and another in a tie.[1] Their first game was against New Zealand which was also the first ever Twenty20 International to be played.[2] In this game they scored 214 off their 20 over which still remains the 4th highest score made in an innings by a team in Twenty20 Internationals.[3] Their loss in their second game against England which was by 100 runs was also the fourth highest defeat in Twenty20 Internationals.[4] Most of the Twenty20s played by Australia have been one-off matches usually in association with a One Day International or Test series against the same team. Australia participated in the 2007 ICC World Twenty20, the first tournament of its kind, and were knocked out in the semi-finals of the competition by India who went on to win the tournament.[5] David Warner is Australia's leading run scorer with 808 runs and Mitchell Johnson is the leading wicket taker with 36 wickets. The highest individual score for an Australian is 156 out by Aaron Finch, who was the only Australian to score a Twenty20 Century (cricket) and holds the world record score, and the best bowling figures are held by Shane Watson with 4/15.

Captains[edit]

Ricky Ponting was Australia's first captain in Twenty20 Internationals. On occasions when Ponting was unavailable, vice-captain Adam Gilchrist filled the role. In December 2007, Ricky Ponting was rested from the team to give the younger players exposure. Although vice-captain Gilchrist was in the team, 26-year-old Michael Clarke was selected as captain. Ponting called him the "obvious choice" and Clarke has been predicted to be the next full-time captain of Australia once Ponting steps down from the captaincy.[7] With Gilchrist's retirement from all forms of representative cricket at the end of the 2007/08 season, Clarke has been promoted to the regular vice-captain's position.[8] Thereafter, Cameron White was promoted as the captain, but George Bailey has taken over the captaincy in the two match series against India.[9]
