Cricket Australia has seen many big controversies recently. Cricket Australia announced a 23-member squad for the tour of West Indies and Bangladesh last month. But seven big players withdrew their names from both these tours due to the bad effect on mental health due to the bio bubble.
The captain of the Australian team has said recently that players who have withdrawn from the West Indies tour will face trouble in getting selected for the T20 World Cup this year. In front of George Bailey, there will also be trouble in making balance in the team regarding these players in T20 World Cup.
