AUS vs WI 2nd Test: Pat Cummins ruled out of Adelaide Test

AUS vs WI 2nd Test: There comes a huge blow for the Australian team as their Captain Pat Cummins has been ruled out of their second Test against West Indies due to a quad strain that he suffered during the Perth Test. The athletic leader has failed to recover on time from the injury & was unable to bowl during the final two days of the first Test in Perth which Australia won by 164 runs.

In the absence of Cummins, prolific fats bowler Scott Boland will be fielded in the Playing XI for the Adelaide Test. Boland hasn’t featured for Australia’s Test team since Ashes 2021 where he ended up scalping 18 wickets in three Tets fixtures. He earned a call-up for the Adelaide Test as a like-for-like replacement for Cummins.

Scott Boland was seen as the best option to play in place of Cummins in the Adelaide Pink Ball test due to the fact that on his Test debut in 2021 he produced a remarkable figure of 6 for 7 at MCG wicket which resembles Adelaide wicket. So it would be easy for him to adjust to the wicket & produce a similar performance in the crucial Adelaide Pink Ball Test. Additionally, Boland’s form looks impressive as during the training session on Tuesday he gave a number of batters a tough time with his fiery pace.

Steve Smith to lead Australia in the AUS vs WI 2nd Test

In the absence of Pat Cummins, Steve Smith will lead the team in the Pink Ball Test against West Indies. Previously too he stood in place of Australian Captain in the Adelaide Test against England last year when Cummins was termed as a COVID-19 Close Contact.

Meanwhile, speaking about Cummins’s recovery medical staff said that he was expected to get fit for the Pink Ball Test. But the selectors & medical team have figured out that the time won’t be essential for Cummins to recover fully for the second Test which starts tomorrow. Thus, Cummins is expected to return for the home Test series against South Africa beginning on December 17.
