Steve Smith and his wife, Dani Willis once again go through heartbreak as the IndvsAus MCG test has built national duties on the Australian batsman. The husband-wife duo is apart from each other since August 31 when Smith went to England with Australia Cricket Team for a limited-over series.
The couple was excited to see each other for their reunion after a long time but the COVID-19 restrictions will keep Smith strict ahead of the second test match against India.
AusvsEng was followed by a two-month-long IPL at UAE that held Smith again at the destined venue to captain the team that later got followed by isolation in Australia and IndvsAus series have started next.
Notably, Smith is the only player to take part in all games against India in the ongoing series (three t20is, three ODIs, one test so far.

Consequently, Smith and Willis will now have to wait even longer. The lady managed to fly Melbourne from Sydney before Victoria closed its borders. But the changes in the rules will make her wait a long to meet her husband who was excited to spend Christmas eve with Dani Willis.
