Team Australia is attacked by Covid before the tour of Sri Lanka


Justin Langer has recently stepped down as head coach of the Australian national team. He was replaced by Andrew MacDonald, a former cricketer and well-known coach of that country. Aussies are scheduled to visit Sri Lanka in the first week of June. But before that they got bad news.

Head coach MacDonald has been attacked by Corona. As a result, he has to stay in isolation for now. McDonald will be able to join the team as soon as he recovers. This is a series in conditions outside the country, the news on it will keep the team behind even if a little mentally.

The bilateral series will be played from June 7. The visitors will play three T20s, five ODIs and two Tests. Aaron Finch is scheduled to fly to Sri Lanka this week. However, Australia Cricket has stated that McDonald's will be in isolation for the time being.

Cricket Australia has also announced that assistant coach Michael de Venuto will take over in the absence of the head coach. After seven days in isolation, the head coach will be able to join the team only if he tests negative for Covid. As such, there is a possibility of getting McDonald before the second T20 match.

Meanwhile, as there is no head coach for the overseas tour, the Australian team will have some worries. It is also known to the Aussies: Despite Lankans are relatively weak in terms of strength, it is not at all easy to lose Lankans at their home. So, the finches are doing their best preparation. By winning this series, they will also prepare for the World Cup.
