Pat Cummins has been identified as a close COVID 19 contact of an infected person

In doubt for the Adelaide Test just hours before the first ball

Steve Smith would be captain in the event Cummins is ruled out

Haven’t read all the pages but it’s got to be Woakes who misses out right?
I think if one of the quicks miss out it might be Robinson owing to the injury situation. If you're dropping resting Anderson & Broad in Brisbane to ensure they aren't getting injured, surely you take the same approach with Oswald Mosley here and play Woakes who isn't carrying an injury.

Then again, they'll be desperate for a win here so they may risk him.

Interesting... Wouldn't that make the entire XI a casual contact, therefore put the test in jeopardy?

Neser and Jhye in then. exciting times, though Cummins obviously a huge loss as he's just excellent.

And what a redemption arc for TPC. Just what England needs - Smith fired up on return as captain. What could possibly go wrong for them? Nailed on for a double ton.

Well this is absolutely terrible. England easy favourites if Cummins is out


It was this very test 4 years ago that Smith proved what a truly awful captain he is by not enforcing the follow on in conditions as good for bowling as it gets

I am not saying he was a great captain, but follow-on calls are made together along with the coach and the bowlers too

Seems from the story that a person at the next table was IDed as positive. Did they get an SMS with the result, stand up and shout "Bingo!"? Suppose if they found out while they were out they've done the right thing telling people, but then again if you're awaiting a test result why are you out in the first place?

This is why we need tougher measures, 14 day quarantine, mask and vaccine mandates together with mandatory five year prison terms for anyone who opposes them or who attends an anti-vax rally, and 15 year sentences for anyone at a ball with Ross Cameron and renowned domestic abuser Avi Yemeni.
