  • Cummins to make up for lost time in debut SCG Test

"Naturally, over the course of the next four years there are going to be different things and challenges that are going to crop up, and changes within the team, but that's all part and parcel of an worldwide team and moving forward as a side".

"He's really keen to play and pretty confident he can play".

"We are a better team than what we've played on this trip and that is a benchmark for our side moving forward", captain Joe Root said after the Melbourne draw.

The side was confirmed after Australia's training session with Starc returning in place of Jackson Bird, who laboured as a stand-in on an Melbourne Cricket Ground pitch rated as "poor" by the governing International Cricket Council. The captain Steven Smith, meanwhile, took a rare day off the nets due to some back soreness but is expected to be fine to play.

Former Australia paceman Glenn McGrath warned selectors not to risk star quick Mitchell Starc for the final Ashes Test with a tour of South Africa looming. "If it was really bad that's I guess what would keep him out", Cummins said.

Asked what England should have done differently if they had their time again, Root replied: "Make sure no-one is head-butting anyone and people were more sensible off the field on the back of what happened in the summer". I've told him to make sure you are completely fit and we don't want you to be doing further damage. "It's really important. that we can get a win and build on that for four years' time", he said.

Good preparation is crucial, he says. It's kind of sometimes a decision of "when do we start shining it one side or the other to get it reversing" and things like that. He has struggled a bit on this trip but, technically I don't think there's a huge amount he needs to work on.

Starc has taken 19 wickets at an average of 21.05 during the Ashes, helping Australia into an unassailable 3-0 series lead.

"I've been here as a kid watching in the stands so to be out here playing in an Ashes will be pretty special". "We've seen Birdy out the back where he's bowled beautifully on this wicket and all season in the Shield and taken lots of wickets", Cummins said. Hopefully, there's a bit more spin for Gazza [Lyon] and we saw how important the first couple of games were when the ball spun, how damaging he can be. As a batting group, you've just got to be prepared to bat for long, long periods of time.
