Australia to play T20 World Cup warm-up matches with only nine players?

With IPL 2024 done and dusted, the focus shifts to the T20 World Cup that is set to commence from June 1 in the West Indies and the USA. The warm-up matches for the mega event are starting from today (May 27) and Australia are set to face Namibia in their first game on May 29 (according to IST). However, they have only nine players available for the warm-up games with the IPL bound players resting ahead of the tournament proper.

The Australian players who were involved in the playoffs of IPL have been permitted to spend some time at home and join the squad fresh ahead of their first group game on June 5 against Oman. Pat Cummins, Travis Head and Mitchell Starc played in the IPL final on Sunday (May 26) while Glenn Maxwell and Cameron Green, playing for RCB, were knocked out in the eliminator. These five players will join the World Cup squad directly in Barbados where they will face Oman.
