After Match Comments:

After the loss of the Test match, Cummins said “I thought 260 was a decent score in the first innings. India batted well, even with just one or two partnerships. We were ahead of the game and slipped. So that’s disappointing for us. We need a review of what could have been done differently,”

“I thought they (India) bowled really well. It’s not easy out there, but perhaps some guys went away from their methods,”

Cummins admitted that some of his teammates “went out of their methods,” as they kept getting out to sweep and reverse sweep.

“It’s disappointing, this game was a similar story to Nagpur’s second innings. Felt like we were in a really good position for most of it, probably a few runs short in the end.

“In Nagpur maybe we underplayed. We probably overplayed it here at times in the second innings. You have got to find a way to try and put pressure back on the bowlers.

“They are really, really good bowlers, especially in these conditions.”
