Stoinis fit, says Australia captain Pat Cummins

Lucknow, (UNI) Australia Captain Pat Cummins on Wednesday said Marcus Stoinis is fit, but the team will be announced tomorrow.

“He’s fit so yeah, we’ll announce a team tomorrow but it’s a ground he knows pretty well. I think chatting to him and a couple of other guys, it’s probably in a bit of a different condition to what it is for IPL. The wicket looks really good so yeah, he’s someone we’ll look at pretty closely,” he told reporters on the eve of the 10th ICC Men’s World Cup match against South Africa here.

Asked about an update on Travis Head, Cummins said, “Yeah, no update. I think it’s tomorrow he’s getting a scan and seeing the surgeon to get an update. So hopefully in the next couple of days.”

On rotation of quick bowlers, Cummins said there is no plan to rotate bowlers, but probably may do so later in the tournament.

“We won’t be rotating bowlers really unless we have to – someone’s really fatigued or someone’s managing a niggle that needs a bit of a rest – so yeah, the intention is to try and have everyone on the selection table for each game. You pick your best 11.

“But yeah, it’s a World Cup. You can’t really take any game lightly. So yeah, probably later on in the tournament, we’ll look at that if we need to. But at the moment, yeah, there’s no plans,” he said.
