Cummins decided to go home in Sydney instead of joining the team in Perth
Australian bowler Pat Cummins will be absent in the final T20I match against Pakistan in Perth tomorrow. Cummins didn’t join the team who are bound for Perth. He went back to his hometown in Sydney instead. He needs time to rest and prepare for the upcoming Test series.
‘It's a little bit of recovery and preparing for the Test match’, Head coach Justin Langer said. ‘We've got so much cricket on and he plays a lot of it so we've got the opportunity for him not to take the long flight to Perth’.
Cummins will play for New South Wales against Western Australia at the Sheffield Shield. It will serve as his preparation before the Test series against Pakistan. Currently, the team is doing preparations for the final T20I match.
'We're playing a really good defensive game. In T20 I've thought for seven or eight years that how you're bowling unit plays and how you field is really important. We're working to build all our bowling stocks so they are able to do those jobs for us. We're really lucky, we've got great depth of squad', Langer said.
