Australia’s star batsman and wicketkeeper Matthew Wade has been found to be Corona positive. That’s why Matthew Wade has not participated in practice with the team. According to ICC rules, Matthew Wade can play further in the tournament, but there will be a ban on him. The restriction is that Matthew Wade will not travel with the team but will have to travel alone.
This could be a problem for Australia
Before the start of the tournament, Australia had two wicket-keeper batsmen. In which Josh was out of the team due to injury before the start of the English tournament. According to the rules of the ICC, Australia can choose another player, but Australia did not choose a wicketkeeper, but Australia chose Cameron Green, an all-rounder.
Now if Matthew Wade is also out, then Australia will be stuck in a serious problem. On this issue, Australian captain Aaron Finch had already said that David Warner can do wicketkeeping. Apart from this, we also saw Glenn Maxwell practicing wicketkeeping during the practice session.
Australia will play its next match against England which will be do or die for it. If Australia loses to England then it will be out of the World Cup 2022. At the same time, the condition of England is similar, whoever wins from both the teams will qualify for the semi-finals, then the journey of the other team will end there.
