Cummins looks to ‘get a few answers’
Australian captain Pat Cummins said on Thursday he had fully recovered from a wrist injury and hoped to play all three one-day internationals against hosts India starting Friday.
While Cummins returns, Australia still won't have the services of pacer Mitchell Starc and all-rounder Glenn Maxwell for the first match in the northern Indian city of Mohali.
"I am feeling pretty good," Cummins told journalists.
Most of Australia's top players are also key members of different franchises in the Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament, and Cummins said they "have pretty good information" about the local conditions.
He said they hoped to try different team combinations and players against India to prepare for the all-important World Cup in India next month. "Hopefully we will get a few answers in the next few games," Cummins said.
India have rested captain Rohit Sharma and batting superstar Virat Kohli for the first two ODIs and the hosts will be led by KL Rahul in the absence of Sharma.
