Australian pacer duo Pat Cummins & Josh Hazzlewood returns back home | INDvAUS

Xtra Time Web Desk: Australia captain Pat Cummins and pacer Josh Hazzlewood has returned back home from the ongoing tour to India. While Cummins has left for Sydney to attend a serious family illness, Hazzlewood has been ruled out of the tour to continue his rehabilitation from an Achilles complaint that has sidelined him from the first two Tests. Cummins is expected to get back to India in time to play the final two tests in Indore and Ahmedabad.

The visitors have better news for Cameron Green and Mitchell Starc, with Head Coach Andrew McDonald declaring Green 100 per cent fit for the third Test while Starc is also in line to play.

Both are on the mend from serious finger injuries. Green was close to being available for the Delhi Test, while McDonald said Starc had been available despite not being 100 per cent fit. 

Off spinner Todd Murphy is managing a side injury during the Delhi Test but McDonald expressed optimism he would be right for the Indore Test beginning March 1.
