Before third Test against India, Pat Cummins returns to Australia.


Pat Cummins will go back to Australia because of an illness in his family, but it is anticipated that he will return to India before the beginning of the third test match.

Due to an illness in the captain’s family, the rest of the Australian cricket team will continue their tour of the sub-continent while the captain makes a quick trip back home.

The 29-year-old will travel to Sydney before returning to the team in India in advance of the third Test that is scheduled to begin on March 1 in Indore.

Cummins has three wickets to his name in the series so far, and his average against Australia’s opponents is 39.66. This comes despite the fact that Australia has been outplayed by India and has lost the first two Tests.

After India won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy with a six-wicket victory in Delhi, the struggling Australian team will look to make a comeback in the final two Tests of the series. India won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy again with their victory.

After some time to reflect and refocus, the Australian players will then turn their attention to the third test match, which will take place at Holkar Cricket Stadium.

Following a collapse that occurred early in the third day of the second test, the team captained by Cummins was bowled out for 113 runs in their second innings.

Ravindra Jadeja, India’s premier all-rounder, had a career-best seven wickets taken in a test to help India defeat Australia in Delhi.

Mitchell Swepson, who had to leave the team before the second test so that he could attend the birth of his first child, may be able to come back and play for Australia, which is some good news for the team.

Ashton Agar, Scott Boland, Alex Carey (wk), Cameron Green, Peter Handscomb, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, Matt Kuhnemann, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Lance Morris, Todd Murphy, Matthew Renshaw, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Swepson, and David Warner make up the Australian squad. Pat Cummins is the captain of the team.

India squad: Rohit Sharma (c), K L Rahul, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, KS Bharat (wk), Ishan Kishan (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammad Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat
