Australian captain Pat Cummins says he has plenty of options for the Test match which begins in Nagpur. Mitchell Swepson and spinner Ashton Agar have been brought in to assist the experienced Nathan Lyon.
Bangalore. Australian captain Pat Cummins said on Saturday that his team is not thinking too much about the spin mix as they have had Nathan Lyon in his squad for the four-Test series against India that begins in Nagpur on Thursday. aid. The Australian team touring India has included Ashton Agar along with Mitchell Swepson to support Lyon.
Speaking to the media for the first time after arriving in India, Cummins said that when Mitchell Starc returns, we will have plenty of options for finger and wrist spins and fast left-arm bowling. He said we will definitely select the bowlers we think will take 20 wickets. But we’re not 100% sure how many marksmen and how many fast launchers we’re going to pick in this.
When asked about including two spinners on the team, Cummins said it would, of course, depend on the circumstances. Especially in the first test. We will see it only when we reach Nagpur. The Australian team will train here before leaving for Nagpur on Monday. “It’s good that a player like Agar was in our last team, Swepson played on the last two tours abroad so there’s a bit of experience,” he said. He said: “(Todd) Murphy (off tour) played on the last tour. We believe that we have enough players in this department to help Lyon.
Cummins (29) also said he also has secondary options in the form of middle-order hitter Travis Head. He said that Travis Head also bowls very well. We have a balance of things. We have quite a variety to choose from. We haven’t decided on the bowling lineup yet. There’s a lot of talk about spin bowling, but Cummins said his team can’t forget his dangerous pace attack. He said that I think sometimes when you talk about spinners, you forget that we have enough fast pitchers for all kinds of situations.
