Australian Skipper Injured, This Star Will Likely Replace Him In The 2nd Test Match Against West Indies

Australian red-ball skipper Pat Cummins had suffered from a quad strain in the fourth innings of the first test match against West Indies, and he was prevented to the bowl and even restricted himself to fielding after the injury. His place in the second test match against West Indies is doubtful.

Ahead of a crucial clash, Australian team management added western Australian pacer Lance Morris and Queensland quick bowler Michael Neser for the second test match to the squad against West Indies.

If Pat Cummins fails to recover in the second test match. In that case, the Australian team management will take Scott Boland as his replacement, who performed astonishingly well against England last year in Melbourne. He has 18 wickets to his name, in which, 6 and 7 wickets haul came against England in the Ashes series.

But looking at the future of the Australian team in red balls as well as the World Test Championship 2023, cricket Australia might try some young pacer like Morris, who is a top-wicket taker with 27 wickets in the Sheffield Shield, or Neser, who have shown clinical performance and grabbed 24 wickets in the same series.

The second test match of the series will be played from 8th December at Adelaide Oval with the pink ball. After this series, Australia will host the South African derby for three-match test series.
