Cummins ruled out of final ODI

In-form paceman Pat Cummins will sit out the fifth and final one-day international against England because of injury.

Cummins was ruled out of Sunday’s ODI in Perth due to hamstring tightness as he joined opener Aaron Finch on the sidelines.

The 24-year-old produced a man-of-the-match display in Australia’s three-wicket win Friday.

Cummins claimed figures of 3-24 as Australia ended their run of three consecutive ODI defeats to England, having reclaimed the Ashes.

Andrew Tye will replace Cummins in Australia’s pace attack, with Glenn Maxwell also coming into the team.


AUS: David Warner, Travis Head, Marcus Stoinis, Steve Smith (c), Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Tim Paine (wk), Mitchell Starc, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa, and Josh Hazlewood.

ENG: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, David Willey, Tom Curran, and Jake Ball.
