Pat Cummins to return after India vs Australia ODI cricket series

A decision on a replacement for the 25-year-old Pat Cummins in the T20 worldwide squad will be announced in due course.

Cummins is part of the Aussie squad now taking on India in a one-day worldwide series, but the 24-year-old will return home once the remaining three games have been played. The towering bowler will return to Australia after the completion of the ongoing five-match ODI series, in a bid to prepare for the Ashes. The fifth ODI will be played in Nagpur on October 1.

Cummins' fitness struggles since his Test debut in November 2011 had forced Australia's selectors to take a long-term view regarding his workload in Tests and first-class matches, although he was picked in limited-overs squads subsequently. He has since been a regular in the 50-over format and is expected to be part of Australia's pace attack in the Ashes and will therefore return home from India after the remaining three ODIs in the five-match series.

"At this stage we're planning for him to play all the games", Saker had said. It's Australia v India, you don't get any bigger than that.

A decision on Cummins's replacement is yet to be made.

Cricket Australia also clarified the 24-year-old is not injured and will look to freshen up ahead of the Sheffield Shield season scheduled from October 26 to March 26 2018.

With fellow spearheads Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc back in Australia recovering from injury, Australia will be desperate to keep Cummins fit.
