At present, the team is at number 7 with 10 points after registering 5 wins in 12 matches.

It is being speculated about his return that he will be available on the Sri Lanka tour. Australia have to tour Sri Lanka in June where they have to play 3 T20 matches, 5 ODIs and 2 Test matches. This tour will take place from June 7 to July 12.
