Due to the Corona virus, very strict protocols are in place in Australia. Due to these protocols, the difficulties of Australian cricketers have increased a lot. According to the protocol, there can be a chance of missing the legendary Australian players till the Test match. Many players participating in the T20 World Cup may have to be out of the Test match to be played against Afghanistan.
If the Australian team reaches the final of the T20 World Cup, then it will remain in Quarantine upon reaching home. Players who will be part of the T20 World Cup will have to be out of the home Test due to the quarantine period. Australia has to play the only Test against Afghanistan from November 27 and the T20 World Cup is to be held in the UAE from October 17 to November 14.
In such a situation, there will be a gap of 13 days between the start of the T20 World Cup and the first Test. If Australia is successful in reaching the final of the T20 World Cup, then its top players like Pat Cummins, Steven Smith, David Warner and Mitchell Starc will have to stay in quarantine for 14 days.
Australian players are in very trouble
After this, Australia has to play the first match of the Ashes in Brisbane from December 8. Some of the top players of the Australian team have pulled out of the limited overs series against West Indies and Bangladesh.
Australian players have to stay away from their families for a long time due to strict rules being enforced. Players like Maxwell, Warner, Cummins and Stoinis have made it clear that they do not want to travel to West Indies and Bangladesh to spend time with family.
