Pat Cummins, who is the captain of the Australia cricket team, has confirmed that Scott Boland will get the nod in place of Michael Nesser as the replacement for Josh Hazlewood in the playing XI for the Australia cricket team.
Pat Cummins has now confirmed that Scott Boland will get the nod in place of Michael Neser as the replacement for Josh Hazlewood in Australia’s playing XI vs. India. With great depth in the fast bowling unit, Australia had a selection dilemma for the finals of the 2023 World Test Championship. But Cummins believes that Boland’s swing and pace will help at the Oval. Despite the fact that David Warner has given poor performances in the test matches, he is likely to retain the opening spot.
As per the statement of Pat Cummins, “Someone like Scotty, it’s just a really simple game plan—you hit your good areas and you stay there all day, and hopefully the ball will do the work for you. He’s had a few bowls over here now and has looked good. But he looks good whenever he bowls.”
Except for Hazlewood, the Australian cricket team has no major injury concerns. Cameron Green was hit on the arm in his last IPL game but has been buzzing in training and will also be bowling, adding further bite to the fearsome attack. Pat Cummins will lead the bowling attack along with Mitchell Starc.
