Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins will focus on taking the wickets of Virat Kohli in the upcoming series against India. He says that it will be important for the hosts to keep the bat of the captain of the Indian team calm. The Indian cricket team is in Australia where it has to play three ODIs, three T20s and four Test series. The tour will begin with the ODI series from 27 November.
Cummins said, ‘I think there are one or two batsmen in each team whose wicket is very important. The captains of most teams are important wickets like Joe Root for England, Kane Williamson for New Zealand. You feel that if you get his wicket then it will be very important to win the match. He said that Kohli’s wicket is always important. Commentators keep talking about them constantly, so we hope that we will keep their bat cool.
Cummins has been named the vice-captain of both white and red ball teams, he is one of the 11 players who have returned after playing in the Indian Premier League in the United Arab Emirates.
