Paine backs authorities amid air quality concerns in Sydney

Team staff are likely to add an assessment on air quality to Friday's pre-match medical briefing which will be held 60 minutes prior to play starting.

However the fires do rage on, it's a time of nice problem for Australia.

Abigale is a Masters in Business Administration by education. The latest proposal that has drawn the ire of the purists and Test cricket lovers, is ICC's decision to consider the viability of playing four-day Tests from the second cycle of the Test championship which commences from 2023. But it was part of a record-setting Boxing Day test crowd, and I'm sure the atmosphere will be as electric in Sydney as it was in Melbourne.

Australia is all set to lock horns with New Zealand in the third and final Test of the ongoing three-match series at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) in Sydney.

It follows a Big Bash League match in Canberra being abandoned this month because of toxic bushfire haze.

There's talk about smoke delaying this game but who cares?

'In the past, many players have been against a change to four days, but it would also be important for players to understand any benefits of time freed up. Williamson and Nicholls were unable to practice on Wednesday or Thursday, and spinner Mitchell Santner is also reported to be ill.

Australia batsman Travis Head reiterated Wagner's sentiments and said players were putting their faith in officials.

The 23-year-old Phillips has played 11 Twenty20 internationals for New Zealand.

New Zealand off-spinner Will Somerville, who has lived in Sydney for most of his life, said that any concern over smoke issues were inconsequential to those suffering from the fires. I think will mean a lot to their families and a lot to their mates who served alongside them in these bad fires.

McGrath, however, said he is completely against the idea of tinkering with the longer format. "It doesn't mean anything compared with what people are going through". Justin Langer later revealed that he wasn't doing much but was just putting smiles on the faces of the Australians, leading the team in the right direction and restoring the view of the mighty Australians in the minds of the people.

"I hope it rains at night so we can keeping playing, but Sydney, like lots of Australia, needs the rain".

SCG Test: Why are the players wearing black armbands in the Sydney Test?

And, now former Australian fast bowler, Glenn McGrath has echoed Paine's words.

The most bids have been placed for Matthew Wade's shirt - which is surprisingly free of red leather stains after he copped a Happy-Gilmore worthy barrage of 'bodyline' bouncers from New Zealand quick Neil Wagner - is now going for $270.
