what did cummins say
Australian captain Pat Cummins on Saturday said his team is not thinking too much about the spin combination as they have experienced off-spinner Nathan Lyon for the four-Test series against India starting in Nagpur on Thursday. There are many options available for help. The Australian team touring India has brought in finger-spinner Ashton Agar along with Mitchell Swepson to support Lyon.
what is the option after stark
Talking to the media for the first time after reaching India, Cummins told reporters that when Mitchell Starc returns, we will have a lot of options of finger and wrist spin and left arm fast bowling. Obviously we will pick bowlers who we feel will take 20 wickets. But we are not 100% sure about how many spinners and how many fast bowlers we will pick in this. Asked about the inclusion of two spinners in the team, Cummins said, “Definitely it will depend on the circumstances.” Especially in the first test. We will see only when we reach Nagpur.
The Australian team will train here before leaving for Nagpur on Monday. He said, “The good thing is that a player like Agar was in our last team, Swepson played in the last two overseas tours so there is a bit of experience.” He said, “Todd Murphy played in the last tour. We feel we have enough players in this department to help Lyon.”
Cummins also said that he has off-spin options in the form of middle-order batsman Travis Head. He said, “Travis Head also bowls very good off-spin. We have a balance of things. We have quite a variety to choose from. We haven’t decided the bowling line yet.
There is a lot of talk about spin bowling but Cummins said that his team cannot forget their dangerous pace attack. He said, “I think sometimes when you talk about spinners, you forget that we have got enough fast bowlers for all kinds of conditions.”
