Australia pace spearhead Pat Cummins has said he is still undecided on whether to play in the upcoming limited-overs series against India. India and Australia will play three ODIs, three T20Is before locking horns in the much-anticipated four-match Border-Gavaskar Test series.
Earlier this month, Pat Cummins returned to Australia after spending three months inside bio-secure bubbles because of the limited-overs series in England followed by the Indian Premier League in the UAE. The series was in September while the IPL took place from September to November.
Pat Cummins insisted that he is completely fit and allayed fears of fatigue despite being in the bio-bubble since August. However, he is yet to make up his mind on whether to play the ODI and the T20I series against India, starting on November 27.
“(I) haven’t made a final decision on that yet. (It’s) unprecedented times with so many people spending a large portion of time in these bubbles so we’re going to keep all the conversations open, chat about that a bit closer to when we all get together,” Pat Cummins said when asked about resting ahead of the Test summer.
“There’s always cricket on, so we’ll make sure we’re all open about that, having those conversations,” he added.
Pat Cummins has been named in all the three squads for the India series. He has also been named as the captain of the white-ball and red-ball teams. The 27-year old further said that the players will be looking to take rest during the home summer considering the busy season ahead.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s times throughout the summer where some players might just need a little rest knowing not only how busy this next couple of months is but also a tour of South Africa (February-March) and a few away tours next year,” said Cummins.
