Young Australia paceman Pat Cummins is also back from extended injury leave to play in the Twenty20 series against South Africa starting November 5. Cummins made a stunning Test debut against South Africa in 2011, taking 6-79 in the second innings to help win the match, but has not played in a Test since.

The 21-year-old appears to finally have overcome lower back and foot problems which have kept him out of selection and has modified his actions to reduce wear on his body.

“My running and my action is a little bit straighter to be more efficient. But it’s more about getting older and stronger and getting some more overs into the body,” Cummins said.
