Cummins still backs ‘outclassed’ Australia to win ODI series against England

London: Australian pacer Pat Cummins, who is returning home after injuring himself midway through the series, has made a public show of faith in his team-mates, backing them to win the one-day series against England.

Cummins sustained a medium grade side strain in the one-day series opener against England at Lord``s on Friday.

The Australians suffered an emphatic six-wicket loss overnight to trail England 2-0 in the current series.

The loss of Cummins to injury is seen as a major blow to Australians chances in the series.

But the young bowler believes his team-mates will bounce back from the defeat to secure the series, a website reports.

“Thanks for the messages, bad timing but the injury shouldn``t take too long. Tough day but back the boys to win last 3 games and the series! Cummins tweeted this morning.

Cricket Australia officials have said the rising star of world cricket won’t play again until September’s World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka.
