Distance from family in pandemic leaves debutants emotionally torn

The Covid-19 pandemic has left young cricketers playing their debut series emotionally affected as they are often missing their relatives and family in times of joy and sorrow.
 
Mohammed Siraj, who is playing his debut series, broke down on Thursday while the national anthem was being played just before the third Test against Australia as memories of his father, who died a couple of months ago, came flooded back to him. He had not seen his dad for close to three months before he died and hasn't seen his family for over one-and-a-half months since his death.
 
Hours after Siraj broke down, Australia opening batsman Will Pucovski struggled to control his emotions in the media interaction when he said that he is missing mum, dad and girlfriend who couldn't come to Sydney to watch him make his debut due to the Covid-19 restrictions.
 
Pucovski belongs to Malvern, which is in the state of Victoria, about 900 km from Sydney in New South Wales.
 
Sydney has recently witnessed a surge in Covid-19 cases and the cricket teams are in strict quarantine. According to the Australian team tradition, the family and partner of the debutant are present alongside the player when he is presented with the baggy green cap prior to the debut at home.
 
"Obviously, I would have loved Mum, dad and girlfriend to be up here and my mates. They couldn't make it due to Covid-19 restrictions, especially dad, who has been a massive support," said Pucovski during the media interaction. READ FULL ARTICLE HERE

Ponting on Pucovski debut innings

Ponting said that on a flat track, Pucovski could have caused more damage with a daddy hundred.
 
"It's probably lucky for Rishabh that Pucovski didn't go on and make a big hundred or a double hundred and looking at the wicket, it looks like an unbelievable surface," Ponting, who also happens to be Pant's head coach at IPL franchise Delhi Capitals, said.

"I'm sure when Rishabh put those catches down, he would have thought the worst and 'here we go, he's really going to make me pay' but (Pucovski) didn't today."
 

Ponting slams Pant for dropping catches

Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting on Thursday slammed Rishabh Pant for his below-par wicket-keeping on the opening day of the third Test here, stating that the Indian youngster has dropped more catches than any other keeper since his debut and needs to work harder.

Pant, on the first day at the SCG, dropped Will Pucovski on 26 and 32 respectively as the debutant opener went on to score 62. The two unlucky bowlers were Ravichandran Ashwin and Mohammed Siraj.

"Since his debut in Test cricket, he's dropped more catches than any other keeper in the world. That highlights he has got some work to do with his keeping," Ponting told 'cricket.com.au'.

"The one's (dropped catches) today are two that should be taken, simple as that," he said.

Here's what Paine said on Pucovski Test debut

India vs Australia 3rd Test Day 1 highlights

In signs ominous for India and encouraging for Australia, the beleaguered Steve Smith looked dangerous and his understudy Marnus Labuschagne struck an unbeaten half-century as the hosts reached 166 for two on a rain-marred opening day of the third Test here.
 
At stumps, Labuschagne was unbeaten on 67 and Smith, after his uncharacteristic run of low scores so far, seemed out of the woods with 31 confident runs, which included five authoritative boundaries. Labuschagne found the fence eight times.
 
This was after debutant Will Pucovski, riding on some luck, made 62 on debut to break the shackles for the under-fire side.
 
Smith looked positive from the word go and was determined to not let the Indian bowlers dictate terms to him.
 
Having entered the match after registering scores of 1, 0 and 8 in his last three innings, Smith's first confident shot came against India's pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah, who was nicely driven through the mid-on for his first boundary of the series.
 
His confidence up after dismissing Pucovski for his first Test wicket, debutant pacer Navdeep Saini got carried away and was guilty of bowling too full to Smith, who latched on to them with a couple of fours.
 
With Smith looking in fine fettle, the early signs were ominous for India and skipper Ajinkya Rahane brought back his nemesis Ravichandran Ashwin into the attack, but the Australian was equal to the task on this occasion.
