Cricket Australia yesterday brought fast bowler Scott Boland to the team to play against England in a potentially ash-clenching Boxing Day test in Melbourne.
Victorian Quick has already trained on the side and will provide an injury cover for a bowling attack that broke England’s batting order in order to take a comfortable 2-0 lead in the five-game series.
Cricket Australia said, “Following the second test win, we will join the team while the medical team is evaluating the fast bowling group.”
It wasn’t clear which Australian bowler was at risk of missing the Melbourne test, but Josh Hazlewood was racing to recover from the side strain and was forced to miss his second test in Adelaide. it was done.
Mitchell Stark seemed to suffer from back pain during the match, but was able to complete 27 overs by taking two wickets of 43 runs in two innings in England.
Captain Pat Cummins, the world’s number one, was forced to drop out of the Adelaide test when considered a close contact with a Covid-positive restaurant dinner, but he is expected to return to Melbourne.
Cricket Australia said Borland “remains strong in Victoria, averaging 10 wickets and 15 wickets in two games against New South Wales this summer.”
The third test in Melbourne will begin on December 26th.
Australia: Pat Cummins (Captain), Scott Borland, Alex Carrie, Cameron Green, Marcus Harris, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Usman Kawaja, Marnus Loveshagne, Nathan Lyon, Michael Neser, Jay Richardson Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Swepson, David Warner.
