Australia’s cricket captain Pat Cummins has been ruled out of the second Ashes test after being named as a close contact of a positive Covid-19 case.

Cummins left the restaurant immediately, but still won’t be allowed to play in the second Ashes test which begins on Thursday afternoon.

Steve Smith will step up as captain for the first time since the infamous sandpaper ball-tampering scandal from 2018. 

It’s another blow for the Australian side, after it was confirmed Josh Hazlewood would be out following a side injury.

Under South Australian Covid-19 rules, close contacts are required to isolate for a designated time given by health authorities, usually seven days. 

Queensland cricketer Michael Neser is set to replace Cummins.

Cricket reporter Peter Lalor told SEN it was incredibly lucky fellow teammates Mitchell Starc and Nathan Lyon weren’t ruled out as they were also at the same restaurant but were eating outside.
