David Warner Pat Cummins and Glenn Maxwell among Australia players to opt out of West Indies and Bangladesh tours


Steven Smith is not available because of an elbow injury; Wes Agar earns first call-up

David Warner, Pat Cummins and Glenn Maxwell are among six players to have opted out of Australia’s tours of the West Indies and Bangladesh, while Steven Smith will miss the trips because of an elbow injury.
Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson and Marcus Stoinis are the others to make themselves unavailable for the upcoming tours because of a variety of personal reasons, following their time at the IPL and the difficult journey home when the tournament was postponed indefinitely. Allrounder Daniel Sams had previously put himself out of contention.
Wes Agar, the South Australia and Adelaide Strikers pace bowler, has earned his first international call-up as the one uncapped player in the 18-strong squad. Nathan Ellis, the Tasmania quick, and legspinner Tanveer Sangha will travel as reserves.
Dan Christian and Ben McDermott, who both recently aborted their county deals when added to the preliminary squad, have been recalled. Christian last played for Australia in 2017.

From the 29 names in the preliminary squad, D’Arcy Short, who is playing for Hampshire in the T20 Blast, and Cameron Green have not been included.
