Port of Spain. Due to shortage of players, Australia had to field four members of the support staff including the chief selector and head coach in the T20 World Cup practice match against Namibia, but despite this the team registered an easy victory. Australia won by seven wickets with the help of David Warner’s unbeaten innings of 54 runs in 21 balls and effective bowling of fit Josh Hazlewood (two wickets for five runs) and leg spinner Adam Zampa (three wickets for 25 runs). The team achieved Namibia’s target of 119 runs with 10 overs remaining.

After participating in the two-month long IPL, Pat Cummins, Travis Head, Mitchell Starc, Cameron Green, Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell have been given a break at home and in such a situation, chief selector and former captain George Bailey and head coach Andrew McDonald had to come to the field for fielding. Apart from Bailey and McDonald, 46-year-old fielding coach Andre Borovech also had to come to field. Australia captain Mitchell Marsh won the toss and decided to bowl first. When Marsh and Hazelwood returned to the dressing room, McDonald and 49-year-old batting coach Brad Hodge had to come to the field.

Hazlewood, who played his first match in three months, looked in good rhythm. Hazlewood told ‘cricket.com.au’ after the match on Tuesday, “Of course we didn’t have the full players, but probably some of the players who played needed to play matches after a big break.” Australia’s Test and ODI captains Cummins, Head and Starc were part of the IPL final in Chennai on Sunday.
