Australian injured pace battery is hopeful that they would return to action for the UAE tour. Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, and Josh Hazlewood will like to prove their fitness ahead of the pivotal tour.
Meanwhile, the trio pace battery last played for Australia in the ill-fated series against South Africa which was marred with the ball-tampering controversy. However, Australia will hope that their bowling linchpins make a comeback for upcoming series against Pakistan.
Australian Cricket is in the rebuilding stage.
Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood are warming the benches due to back injuries whereas Starc is suffering from a leg injury.
Pat Cummins said that he is getting his scans done in every month. It is taking time to recuperate however the recovery is on the right path.
“I’ve been getting a scan every month to track the progress,” Cummins told AAP. “It’s probably a little bit slower than we would have liked, but all still pretty much on track.
Cummins who is well known for generating good pace added that pace triplet should be able to make the cut for the UAE tour. The Aussie paceman added that the injury was a blessing in disguise as it gave a bit of rest to his body.
“As long as there are no hiccups in the building-up stage. We should all be right for the UAE. We’ve all started running. I don’t think I’d had more than a couple of days off bowling for about 18 months, so for my body to have a bit of a break has been nice”.
Australia will be seen in the whites for the first time after the controversial series against South Africa. There is no doubt that the Aussies have deeply missed the services of Steven Smith and David Warner. Furthermore, the absence of the pace trio from England limited-overs tour left a deep void in the Australian ODI side.
