“Cummins is understandably very disappointed not to be able to captain Australia for the day night Test in Adelaide. Mitchell Starc and Nathan Lyon were dining at the same restaurant as Cummins but at a separate table outdoors. SA Health has deemed them casual contacts, and they are free to play,” the release added.

In the absence of Cummins, vice captain Steve Smith will lead the Aussies for the first time since Cape Town 2018. Queensland’s Seaman, Michael Neser, will make his test debut after taking over as Cummins. Travis Head, South Australia, has been appointed Deputy Captain.

Meanwhile, Cummins expressed disappointment on Twitter for failing the second test, but also granted his wish to Nether, who made his test debut.

“Apart from missing this test, I was really excited to see the Nether finally seize the opportunity on the buggy green. He’s a hard yarder and a seriously skilled player. Very frustrating, COVID has thrown some curve balls for all of us over the last few years. I support you! “I sweetened cummins on Thursday.
