Cummins flies back home due to family Health issues

NEW DELHI:: Australia captain Pat Cummins has embarked to Sydney due to a serious family illness but is expected to return for the third Test of the ongoing Border-Gavaskar series in Indore. The fast bowler was en route to Sydney on February 19 but is expected to be back in India to play the final two matches in Indore and Ahmedabad, Cricket Australia said on Monday.

Cummins was in charge of the Baggy Greens' second Test loss in Delhi, where India won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and secured a 2-0 series lead with a six-wicket victory in the first Test. Australia was defeated by an innings and 32 runs in the opening Test at Nagpur.

But, after falling behind in the series 2-0, changes are imminent for the Australian team.

After being pulled out of the Delhi Test due to a concussion and sustaining a hairline fracture in his left elbow while batting in the first innings, David Warner's health will be keenly watched. Todd Murphy, a star in the world of spinning, is also dogged by an injury because of a sore side.

The third Test will start on March 1 at Holkar Stadium in Indore, and the fourth and final Test will take place from March 9 to March 13 at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Following the conclusion of the four-match Test series, Australia will play a three-match ODI series against India, and Cummins will serve as both the ODI and Test series captains.
