Two Australian Speedster Out Of the Upcoming Pakistan Series

Two Australian Speedster Out Of the Upcoming Pakistan Series

Australian pace duo Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood are set to miss the upcoming Australia’s Test series against Pakistan.

Cricket news: Both the pacers are recovering from their respective back injuries

The series is scheduled to be played in the month of October at the United Arab Emirates, and the Australian team will travel there without Cummins and Hazlewood, as both of them are recovering from back injuries.

Both the pacers have previously missed the one-day international series against England, where Australia was whitewashed by the Brits.

While both these players will still remain sidelined for a couple of months, their fellow pacer Mitchell Starc will return in the Pakistan series after having recovered from a tibial bone stress fracture in his right leg.

In a recent interview, the physio of team Australia David Beakley said, "Pat and Josh are progressing well from their lumbar bone stress injuries but are not bowling, so unfortunately they will not be at the level required for Test match intensity come October.

"Barring any setbacks, we are hopeful that Pat and Josh will return via the back-end of the JLT One-Day Cup, with the aim of them being available for the ODI Series against South Africa in November as they build towards the Indian Test Series.

"On a positive note, Mitchell Starc is back to unrestricted training and remains on track for the Test Series against Pakistan."
