“It’s a huge amount of cricket. And when we get back, the Sri Lankan series is going to be a really interesting one.

“We get all our wellness markers and just talking to the players where they are at. We might have to make some tough decisions in that series.”
Although the Australian support staff and officials are trying to make sure that they don’t exhaust the players in the process and that they are giving them all the facilities and the much-needed break as and when required.
