Australia will see a strong team on this tour as many players missed the ODI match against Pakistan due to IPL. Apart from Pat Cummins, Marcus Harris and Mark Stecketti have not been included in the 16-man Test squad. However, both have been named in the A squad which will tour Sri Lanka with the senior mens team.
Talking about the limited overs team, Ben McDermott, who scored a century against Pakistan, has not got a place. Apart from this, Michael Neser has also not got a chance. Adam Zampa has been given a break from this tour. This will also be the first tour for new coach Andrew McDonald.
