Posted on

Australian team arrives in Barbados: The Australian team is gearing up for their first T20 World Cup match against Oman, but many of the team’s key players faced a lot of difficulties to join the team in Barbados. During this trip, Cummins’ luggage was stolen. At the same time, Stark and Maxwell also somehow reached Barbados. According to cricket.com.au, fast bowlers Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and all-rounder Glenn Maxwell faced several problems on the trip. According to reports, Cummins’ trip to Barbados was completed in two days. According to cricket.com.au, Ashton Agar told the media, “A lot of players have been in India for a long time in the IPL, some of them have spent 48 hours at home, so a break like this is a bit of a relief and a refresher. The players are.”

Meanwhile, Stark and Maxwell encounter flight delays, forcing them to make overnight stops in Los Angeles and Miami. Earlier, Marcus Stoinis also faced trouble when his cricket kit did not reach Trinidad for the practice match. This was the reason why he could not play the warm-up match against West Indies. However, despite all these difficulties, the team has not backed down from its World Cup goals. The day after all these challenges, Ashton Agar and four other players took part in a training session at the Windward Cricket Club in Saint-Philippe, south-east of Paris.

Australia will open their campaign against Oman on June 6 at the Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados. After this, their next match will be against England on June 9. Australia was short of players in both practice matches with only 9 players available from its 15-man squad. Travis Head, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green and Marcus Stoinis were late additions to the Australian squad due to participation in the IPL playoffs.
