Preamble

Hey from Adelaide! Only a quiet, uneventful morning, the lengthy build-up to a day Check match…

No, who am I kidding. The Australian captain has been close-contacted out of the match because of South Australia’s guidelines. Patrick Cummins was out to dinner final evening, Australian time. I’m reliably knowledgeable it was on the Little Hunter Steakhouse. They’ve a home-made royal blue potato gnocchi that appears price a lockdown. Somebody on the subsequent desk then bought a well being division message that they’d examined optimistic for Covid, and advised the diners round them. Which meant that Cummins was now an in depth contact. (Telephone check-in information 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 Check debut. And Steven Smith is now captaining Australia as soon as once more.
