Australia VS England, Australian Team Preview:
The Australian team showed their potential in the game against Sri Lanka. They belted Sri Lanka. Marcus Stoinis showed why he is called the “Hulk”. But dark clouds of Covid-19 are looming over the team. After Adam Zampa, Matthew Wade has now tested positive for Covid-19. Though the rules have now changed and even covid-positive players can take the field, the Australian team will be the one deciding if Wade and Zampa will play.
