As many as seven top Australian cricketers are likely to pull out of the national team’s limited-overs series against West Indies, scheduled to start in July.
The seven players are Pat Cummins, David Warner, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Kane Richardson and Jhye Richardson.
As per a report in Nine Media, these players could pull out as they all have spent considerable amount of time in various cricketing bubbles in the past few months.
Earlier. all-rounder Daniel Sams, who had tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL), had already made himself unavailable for selection due to mental health.
The Aussie players, who are being expected to withdraw from the Windies tour, were part of the IPL 2021, which was indefinately postponed in May.
These players had reached back home after spending 14 days in Maldives and about a week in Sydney on arrival from India.
After Windies tour, the Aussies are scheduled to fly Bangladesh.
