The COVID-19 virus had caused another setback, as the second One-Day International between Australia and the West Indies was called off after a positive case was discovered minutes before the match began. After learning the COVID-19 virus's entry into the bio bubble, authorities acted quickly and called the game off.

For things to return to normal, both teams will have to stay in isolation for the next few days and test negative on many occasions. The affirmative instance is not from the Australian team. The boards have yet to issue an official statement revealing the gamer's identity who was infected with the virus and whose bio bubble was affected.

The toss had already taken place before the game was suspended owing to unforeseen circumstances. Kieron Pollard, the captain of the West Indies, won the toss and elected to bat first.

Shimron Hetmyer was rested, while Shai Hope took his place at the top of the list. After an injury, Hope is making a return. In March, the last played a white ball game for the West Indies.

On the other hand, Australia made one change from the previous game's lineup. Riley Meredith, who replaced Wes Agar in the starting XI, made his debut. Meredith received Finch's headgear just before the coin toss. The Punjab Kings paceman will be disappointed to learn that he will have to wait a little longer to make his Australian debut.
