Australia cricket team are scheduled to tour Bangladesh for a five-match T20I series in August this year. This will be Australia's first tour of Bangladesh in four years.
However, several players are likely to pull out of the tours of the West Indies and Bangladesh due to bio-bubble fatigue.
Steven Smith, the former Australia captain, is among the players who could skip the tour, reported The Age. Pat Cummins and David Warner could pull out as well, having spent weeks in the bio-bubble.
Sources close to the team confirmed that Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Jhye Richardson, and Kane Richardson are among others who could miss the tour.
Now that these players' participation is not a certainty, Cricket Australia (CA) has added Ben McDermott, Dan Christian, Cameron Green, Ashton Turner, Wes Agar, and Nathan Ellis to the preliminary squad.
