India Australia 1st T20 LIVE: Cummins skipped Australia’s recent home series against Zimbabwe and New Zealand and hasn’t featured for his country since their World Test Championship series against Sri Lanka at the start of July.
The break has allowed Cummins to get plenty of rest into his battle-weary body.
Australia’s Test captain says he is ready for the hectic upcoming schedule and confident he can make an impact in whatever format he plays.
“I’m pretty keen to play quite a lot so that come the World Cup I feel like my game is in really good order,” Cummins said.
“That World Cup is the time we want to be peaking so I think we’ll find that balance between making sure we’re ready but not overcooked going to the start of the World Cup.
“I feel probably the best I have for a year or two, my body feels fresh, it feels like I’ve been able to have a mini pre-season.
“In terms of mindset, I feel really fresh and ready to get stuck in, so it was a great break, a couple of the niggles are fine.
“There will be ongoing management, some of those things just compound if you don’t get that little window, so they are all as good as they have been for a while.”
Australia Playing XI 1ST T20: Australia is all set to give debut to Tim David. The highly-touted all-rounder Tis likely to make his Australia debut against India and Cummins is confident the 26-year-old can slot in seamlessly to his side’s middle-order.
“He’s been right up there with the best in the world batting in that middle-order,” Cummins said. “It’s a really tough spot (to bat), you see most of the run-scorers open the batting or in the top-order.
“It’s really hard to be consistent coming in when there’s spin bowlers or at the end of the innings and I think he’s been fantastic.
“So if he gets his chance, hopefully he can continue doing what he’s been doing in the domestic leagues around the world.”
