Australia is hosting the 8th edition of the T20 World Cup. During this, all the matches of the World Cup are being played in seven cities in Australia.

Two Players Of The Team Were Found To Be Corona Positive

On the other hand, in this great match of the T20 World Cup, the host team is facing constant setbacks from the beginning. On the one hand, the host team had to face defeat against New Zealand in its first match, while on the other hand, two team players are Corona-positive. At the same time, now the statement of Australian coach Andrew McDonald has stirred up.

Adam Zampa and Matthew Wade Corona Positive

Let us tell you that team players Adam Zampa and Matthew Wade have already been found to be Corona-positive. Although Matthew Wade was scheduled to play in the match against England, this match was cancelled without playing due to heavy rain.

At the same time, Adam Zampa could not play in the game against Sri Lanka after being found Corona positive, but during this, the victory was found on Australia’s part.

More Cases of COVID-19 May come into the team.

After both of these Australian players were found to be Corona positive, Australian coach Andrew McDonald has feared that more cases of the virus may come to the fore in his team.

After the cancellation of the England-Australia match, Andrew Macdonald said, ‘It is very likely that there may be some more cases of COVID-19 in the team.’ At the same time, many other cricketers, along with George Dockrell of Ireland, have tested positive, but he played in the match against Sri Lanka on Sunday.

At the same time, the Australian government had announced at the beginning of the T20 World Cup that the player would not be thrown out of the game even after being found Corona positive.

Along with this, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has also changed its current rules. According to the new rule, if a player is found to be Corona-positive, he will not be thrown out of the game.
