Australia Squad for Sri Lanka Series

Australia will face the host Sri Lanka to play the 1st T20I on June 7 in R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo.

Adam Zampa, who is expecting his first child with his wife, will miss the entire tour. It will also be Andrew McDonald’s first tour as a full-time head coach.

“These are very targeted to skill sets and what we see as the bulk of the squad for the home T20 World Cup and looking further forward to the ODI World Cup,” said Men’s Chair of National Selectors George Bailey.

“We were able to continue to build our depth with great white ball performances in Pakistan on the back of a superb Test Series. As selectors this has been one of the most rewarding parts amid the challenges of the past few years.”

The ‘A’ squad, which will play two one-day and two first-class games, sees the likes of Sean Abbott, Scot Boland, Pete Handscomb and Jhye Richardson, with youngsters like Tanveer Sangha and Aaron Hardie also in the mix.

“This is the first time a tour of this scale has been possible since the Ashes in 2019,” Bailey said.

“It’s incredibly exciting to have an Australia A component which offers the further flexibility and opportunity for players to be available for and cross over into all squads,” he went on to add. “That could be from a Test or white ball preparation perspective or an opportunity to impress at an international level.

“Those factors coupled with what we expect to be more freedom of travel means we can be very specific with our structures while continuing to develop the next generation of players.”

Australia will play their last test match between July 8-12 in Galle International Stadium, Galle.
