While having a conversation to foxsports.com.au on Thursday, head coach Andrew McDonald said,”Touch and go. He certainly hasn’t been ruled out of that, but we weren’t prepared to risk him in those practice games.”
He also said,”We‘ve got the main session today and then another hit out tomorrow, so he’ll go through his work there and we’ll see whether he’s available for selection for game one. These next couple of days (are) really important for him to press for selection for game one, and we‘ll see how that unfolds.”
After Travis Head now Marcus Stoinis has also joined the injury list of Australian players. Stoinis has played 64 matches so far in which he has scored 1400 runs and also grabbed 44 wickets.
