But with Knight Riders looking unlikely to progress beyond the group stage, and Australia facing a very busy year which includes a T20 World Cup title defence in October, Cummins has decided to step back and get his body right. The 29-year old had already been rested from the T20I leg of the Sri Lanka tour. But given his status as Test captain and new-ball bowler across formats, he is likely to be heavily involved in the team’s other assignments, namely a five-Test home summer, a Test tour of India and an Ashes campaign in England.
