Australia batsman Travis Head is likely to be selected for the World Cup match against the Netherlands as he recovers from a broken hand. Head suffered the injury during Australia’s tour of South Africa last month and has missed the team’s first four matches in the World Cup. Coach Andrew McDonald stated that the selectors will decide on Head’s availability after monitoring his recovery from training. McDonald expressed optimism about Head’s availability but emphasized that his condition the following day will be crucial. If Head returns, Marnus Labuschagne is expected to step aside, although McDonald noted that the decision is not definitive. Australia is currently in fourth place in the group stage standings, and McDonald revealed their focus on taking early wickets during the powerplay. Despite this, the team is likely to stick with Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood as the opening bowlers rather than captain Pat Cummins. McDonald praised the partnership between Starc and Hazlewood, highlighting their economy rate and wicket-taking ability.
