For pink ball test to be held in Adelaide Australia Two players have been included in the team. One of these players is a pink ball specialist. The selectors of Cricket Australia have decided to add both of them to the team in view of Pat Cummins’ injury. Actually, he does not want Australia’s pace attack to weaken under any circumstances, that is why two fast bowlers – Michael Neser and Lance Morris – have been added to the team. Both these bowlers will be the back up of Pat Cummins.

Pat Cummins has back-up
Australia has added both Michael and Morris to the team as backup to Pat Cummins. Cummins was actually injured during the second innings of the Perth Test. Although he is said to be fit for the day-night test played with pink ball, but the selectors of the team are not in the mood to take any kind of risk.
Lance Morris’s biggest strength is his speed. He can throw balls with constant speed. Now it remains to be seen how he manages to leave his mark against the West Indies when he gets a chance in Adelaide.
