Australia’s captain Pat Cummins stated that they have a strategy to deal with Indian bowlers in their upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup match against India. They’ll face India on October 8 in Chennai.
Cummins mentioned their past encounters with Indian spinners, indicating their success. He also emphasized the confidence gained from their recent win against India in the third ODI last month, which has boosted the team’s morale for the tournament.
“It (preparation) starts with training for the next few days before the game. The Australian guys play a lot of spin. Our batting order had played a lot in India and done well, so they know most of the (Indian) bowlers and they have a plan (in place).”
”We are really confident. As We had a good win in the third ODI (in Rajkot), which is probably a bit closest to our strongest XI. We have had pretty good records in ODIs in India,” Cummins was quoted as saying by The Week.
I anticipate an excellent performance from Dave in the tournament: Pat Cummins
Cummins also commended David Warner for his aggressive approach to batting. Warner’s exceptional performance in the recent ODI series in India, where he scored three consecutive half-centuries just before the World Cup, earned praise. The Australian captain expressed that the team is fully prepared for the ICC mega event.
“Dave’s (Warner) been fantastic in the last month, particularly in white-ball cricket. Not only is he scoring runs, he is being aggressive. He is taking the game on and getting the innings off to a great start.”
”So, I’m expecting a great tournament from Dave. He has been consistent, and I am loving the way he is going about it,” said Cummins.
“Feels like a second home (in India). Preparations have been really good, with the five ODIs in South Africa and three against India. Feels like we have got enough games for our playing XI and the bench as well,” the Aussie added.
