It seems like Cricket Australia (CA) is pretty much determined in turning the tables with the series against India. They are making out every possible way to keep their players fit and raring to go against the Indians in the Test format of the game. In the latest development. CA has rested Australia fast bowling trio Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood for Shield Cricket.

To keep them fresh ahead of the four-Test home series against India, starting early next month, Cricket Australia asked the trio to stay away from the Shield game at Perth, Pat Cummins revealed.

Pat Cummins welcomes the move:

The fast bowler quoted it is nice for them to get some time in Shield Cricket ahead of crucial series. But, he accepts the Perth game is close to the first Test, which certainly won’t work it right.

Further, he is confident of doing well against India as a unit. Cummins also spoke on his partners in crime, Starc and Hazlewood, who are all raring to go at full pace against the Indians.

”I think Josh, Starc and I are all going to rest up this Shield game and be right to go in Adelaide,” Cummins told reporters in Sydney on Thursday. Ideally, it would be nice to maybe sneak in another bowl, it’s about a 16-day gap, but that Shield game (at Perth Stadium) is probably a bit too close to the test match.”

“I feel like we’ve done that, especially Joshy and I — we’ve had six months off — a little bit of cricket recently but basically six months of getting our bodies right, getting really fresh and making sure when that first test comes that we’re flat out and ready for a long summer. Hopefully, we don’t spend five days in the field every test, get through them all,” he inferred.

All in all, it would be interesting to see how things would pan out for Australian fast bowlers. With the batting department looking inexperienced, a lot of expectations will be on the fast bowling unit to get the job done for the hosts.
