Cummins’ stint as the captain started with a 4-1 series win over England in the previous edition of Ashes played Down Under. The team has played 15 Tests in the current WTC calendar, out of which they won 10, lost 1 and drew 4.

However, Cummins now gears up for his biggest assignment, which is a four-match Test series against India, which gets underway from February 9 in Nagpur. The highly anticipated series will be one of his strongest challenge as India are expected to go full guns, which if they win will help them set up a final meet against the same opponents at The Oval in June.

Australia is yet to win a Test series in India since 2004-05 and Cummins-led Australia would be itching to change the fortune this time around. The Kangaroos suffered consecutive series defeats when India traveled to Australia back in 2018-19 and 2020-21. India defeated Australia 2-1 on both occasions.

Sharing his views on the same, Cummins in an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald noted: “I could go from being captain of the best Aussie team to the worst.”

“These are the biggest 10 Tests you’ll ever play in your career and we’re doing it in the next four months,” he added.
