Andrew Tye to replace Pat Cummins for India-Australia T20I series
Hindustan Times

Australia on Tuesday announced Andrew Tye as the replacement for Pat Cummins for the upcoming three-match T20I series in India early next month. Cummins has been rested from the T20I series which follows a five-match ODI affair which Australia have already lost.
Cummins has been rested from the T20I series owing to the fact that Australia will need him ready, likely as the third fast bowler in their line-up after Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood for the upcoming Ashes 2017-18. The two premier pacers are currently recovering from their respective injuries.
According to cricket.com.au, Tye will be joining the likes of Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kane Richardson and Jason Behrendorff in India to complete the fast bowling unit.
Earlier this year, playing for the Gujarat Lions in the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Tye had picked up a hat-trick against Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS).
In his spell of 5 for 17, Tye had become the first bowler ever to have taken a hat-trick on IPL debut. However, he had to wait for a long time to play his first match, precisely 34 matches with various teams such as Chennai Super Kings (CSK).


But he had later on pulled out of IPL 2017 due to a shoulder injury, and also from the English T20 competition for Gloucestershire.
The first match of the T20I series between India and Australia will be played in Ranchi, the hometown of MS Dhoni, at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association Stadium (JSCA) on October 7.
The second game will be on October 10 at Guwahati, whereas the third and the final match of Australia’s tour of India 2017 will be in Hyderabad.
