Former Australian speed demon Brett Lee has backed Pat Cummins’ surprising decision to bowl.
“I think it’s a great call, I think it’s the right call,” Lee said of the skipper’s call on Fox Cricket.
“Aussies to set the tone first and get that opportunity with this brand-new ball.”
It is the first time since 1980 that Australia has won the toss and elected to bowl in Adelaide.
The venue is traditionally a batting-friendly deck.
