An 'exceptional' talent with bat, ball and in the field, Sean Abbott is turning heads ahead of Australia’s home summer
Dermo Sabba "Ultimate" Abbott getting a callup would indeed be good
Can one player be in more than one role? Wade could be the backup pace bowling allrounder as well as backup keeper.Tipping Josh Inglis to get a call up to the Test squad today.
'...with the introduction of COVID-substitute regulations meaning teams must carry a ready replacement for each specialist in their line-up.'
So Wade can't sub for Paine if he's already in the line-up. Will that also mean we'll need 2 pace bowling allrounders, Green and Henriques linked together?
I wouldn't take that as an indication that Wade's spot is doubtful. If anything the opposite.Tim Paine (c), Sean Abbott, Joe Burns, Pat Cummins, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Michael Neser, James Pattinson, Will Pucovski, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Wade, David Warner
Test squad has been announced, article also mentions "Former Test wicketkeeper Matthew Wade will fill the back-up 'keeper role should injury or illness befall skipper Paine." So green may start over wade in the first test.
