Due to a serious health issue in his family, the 29-year-old is leaving the Australian camp.
Pat Cummins, Australia’s captain, is on his way to Sydney following his team’s second consecutive loss in the ongoing Border Gavaskar series in Delhi. Due to a serious health issue in his family, the 29-year-old is leaving the Australian camp and will return to the subcontinent ahead of the third Test, which begins on March 1.
Following a second consecutive defeat within three days of a Test match, the Australian team will have a nine-day break before facing the home team in Indore. The Australian captain will spend a few days in Sydney before returning to prepare for the next Test match against the hosts.
Cummins, India’s sole pacer in the second Test, did not bowl in the second innings as India completed a routine chase to take an unassailable lead in the series and retain the Border Gavaskar Trophy. If the Australian fast bowler is unable to make it in time for the third Test, his deputy, Steve Smith, will lead the side against the tenacious Indians.
