Preamble

Hello from Adelaide! Just a quiet, uneventful morning, the lengthy build-up to a day Test match…

No, who am I kidding. The Australian captain has been close-contacted out of the match due to South Australia’s guidelines. Patrick Cummins was out to dinner final night time, Australian time. I’m reliably knowledgeable it was on the Little Hunter Steakhouse. They have a home-made royal blue potato gnocchi that appears price a lockdown. Someone on the subsequent desk then obtained a well being division message that they’d examined constructive for Covid, and instructed the diners round them. Which meant that Cummins was now a detailed contact. (Phone check-in knowledge would have pinged him on this anyway, however possibly not for a number of extra days.)

So, protocol says he has to isolate for seven days. He can’t play right here. Michael Neser will make his long-delayed Test debut. And Steven Smith is now captaining Australia as soon as once more.
