The performance of the Australian team in the T20 World Cup 2022 has been average so far. Along with being injured, the players of the host team have also come under the grip of Coronavirus.
At the beginning of the tournament, wicketkeeper batsman Josh Inglis included Cameron Green in the team in place of his injured, then after Adam Zampa, now wicketkeeper Matthew Wade was found corona infected. After Josh English was out and Wade was found to be Corona positive, the host team’s headache about the wicketkeeper’s option has increased.
Australia captain Aaron Finch brought in all-rounder Cameron Green in place of Josh and took a big risk. He believed that Wade would be completely fit and would take care of the maintenance throughout the tournament. But after his corona positive report, the team’s all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has practiced wicketkeeping.
If Matthew Wade is not part of the team before the crucial match against England, then Glenn Maxwell can be seen as the wicketkeeper. However, according to the rules of the tournament, even after being corona positive, the player can be part of the playing XI.
