Australian Test captain Pat Cummins will be part of the team for the Boxing Day Test, starting December 26 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). He was ruled out of the second Test against England in Adelaide after coming in contact with a Covid infected person.
The Covid test was done after Cummins came in contact with the infected person, in which his report has come negative. Cricket Australia said on Friday that Cummins had traveled to Sydney on a chartered flight after being ruled out of the Adelaide Test. He was allowed to return home to NSW by the health authorities of South Australia.
