Sam Billings is expected to make his test debut in the Ashes final game after driving 500 miles from the Gold Coast to Sydney to solve England’s injury problems.
First and second choice wicketkeepers, Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow, suffered both hand blows during the fourth Test, and Ollie Pope was behind the stumps for Australia’s second innings.
Billings was in Queensland with Big Bash side Sydney Thunder when he received the 911 call only a few hours before he was due to fly back to the UK to prepare for England’s T20 series against West Indies later this month.
The wicketkeeper batsman has been told not to allow a 90-minute flight to Sydney as a Covid-19 precaution but had to take it instead
