T20 World Cup: Corona stalking the host team like a shadow… Another star player infected with the virus

Before the match against Sri Lanka, star spinner Adam Zampa was infected with Covid. Recently, the only wicket keeper and star batsman in the team, Mathew Wade, has been diagnosed as corona positive.

Australia, who entered the T20 World Cup as the defending champions, lost badly in the first match against New Zealand. But in the second match against Sri Lanka, the team won. Meanwhile, in this World Cup, the host team is being haunted by the corona epidemic like a shadow. Before the match against Sri Lanka, star spinner Adam Zampa was infected with Covid. Recently, the only wicket keeper and star batsman in the team, Mathew Wade, has been diagnosed as corona positive. Meanwhile, as part of the Super 12, today (October 28) the Aussies will decide against the strong England. With Wade getting infected with Covid and the absence of another backup wicket keeper in the team, the Aussie management is shaking their heads. Although Josh English was initially selected as the back-up wicketkeeper in the World Cup squad, he was ruled out of the tournament due to injury.

Maxi or Warner..

At present, it seems that Wade’s symptoms of corona are mild. In addition to this, winning against England is very important to stay in the race for the semis, so the Aussie management is hoping to get Wade into the ring anyway. If Wade’s symptoms of covid are high at the time of the match, Cricket Australia is hoping to hand over the responsibilities of keeping to someone with Maxwell and Warner in his place. As part of this, it is noteworthy that both Maxwell and Warner also practiced keeping during the practice session.

It is known that the ICC recently announced that the players affected by Corona can also play matches. Against this backdrop, Ireland all-rounder George Dockrell played in the match against Sri Lanka on October 23 despite being diagnosed with Covid. It seems the same could happen with Wade.
