A two-Test series is being played between Australia and West Indies. Australia won the first test match against West Indies by 10 wickets. The second test match between the two teams will start from January 25. But even before this a bad situation has come for the Australian camp. A star player of the team has been infected with the Corona virus. This has created problems for the team.

This player got infected with Corona

Before the second Test against West Indies, Australia’s star all-rounder Cameron Green and head coach Andrew McDonald have tested positive for Covid-19. Earlier, Travis Head had also been infected with Corona, but now his test has come negative and he can easily take part in the second Test match. The Australian team took part in the practice session on Tuesday, but Head was not a part of it. Whereas Green and McDonald will remain apart from the squad. Until their test becomes negative.

In line with Cricket Australia’s protocols, Cameron Green will be able to play his part in the Test. Even if his Covid-19 test is not negative in the next 24 hours. While they have an extra changeroom that can be used. Steve Smith said that both Green and McDonald are fine and the Australian team will field with the same playing eleven.

The captain said this

The Australian team will play the second Test with the West Indies with the pink ball. On this, Australian captain Pat Cummins said that there is no doubt that playing Test with pink ball almost every year and playing some Shield cricket with pink ball in the last few years helps us to familiarize ourselves. Perhaps based on experience it may be better than the opponents.

Australian team squad for test series:

Pat Cummins (captain), Scott Boland, Alex Carey, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Matthew Renshaw, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc.
