According to the hosts, despite having COVID, Australia’s top bowler Adam Zampa will be able to play in their Twenty20 World Cup match against Sri Lanka later on Tuesday in Perth.
The 30-year-old leg spinner is allowed to compete, but he must travel separately from the rest of the team and be placed somewhere apart from his teammates.
According to Cricket Australia, Zampa’s symptoms are improving and are currently reported as minimal in intensity.
A decision (on his pick) will be made (closer to the toss), CA added.
No other Australian team members or staff members have complained of symptoms.
Despite having COVID, Ireland’s George Dockrell played against Asian champions Sri Lanka on Sunday in Hobart.
In a challenging Group 1 that also includes England, Australia, the incumbent champion, will look to revenge their opening loss to New Zealand against Sri Lanka.
