Australia are yet to name their squad for the landmark tour of Pakistan but Test captain Pat Cummins has asserted it will be close to a full-strength squad.

“I think we’ll get close to a full-strength squad. There is still a little bit of work to do. We have received a lot of information and it has been great. All the pre-tour security and biosecurity work has been done and it’s been fantastic,” Cummins said a couple of days back. 

“There are a couple of players still keen to get a bit more information but everyone is really pumped and feeling relatively comfortable. If anyone doesn’t make the tour it is absolutely okay, we will back them for sure,” he added.
