Cummins targets Aussie win

2nd January 2019, 14:14 by Michael Holland

Pat Cummins says Australia are determined to bounce back when they take on India in the fourth and final Test in Sydney.

The tourists lead 2-1 following wins in Adelaide and Melbourne but the Aussie seamer says his side are determined to maintain their record of never having lost a home Test series to India when the action gets underway on Thursday.

The Baggy Greens impressed in Perth when temporarily levelling the series, and Cummins wants more of the same.

"We spoke at the start of the series about the record that we've got to try to hang onto," he said. "2-1 is a pretty fair reflection of how we've played the series so far.

"You can see why they're the No. 1 Test side in the world. They travel really well - we saw it in England - and they just seem to adapt really well.

"If we can get a win and make it 2-2 I think that's a pretty good result against the best side in the world and what is a pretty inexperienced [Australian] side compared to previous years. Everyone's desperate and can't wait to try to rectify what's happened so far."
