The Ashes: Cummins excited for the future

Captain Pat Cummins has hailed the amount of quality in the squad and believes the future is bright for the Australian Test side.

Australia have already wrapped up the Ashes series and are priced at 3/1 to win it 5-0 with all the focus currently on the next two Test matches.

Sub continent mission

However Cummins has also spoken of his excitement at what lies ahead and believes they now have enough quality to travel to the sub continent and win Test matches there.

Fast bowlers Scott Boland, Michael Neser and Jhye Richardson have added more depth to the bowling, Alex Carey has looked comfortable at wicketkeeper, while Travis Head has also stepped in and starred.

"The opportunity to debut three guys and have a few guys like Trav Head, who has stepped up midway through their career, it just really feels like we've set up for the next few years," Cummins said at the SCG on Tuesday.

"I think the most immediate challenges are going to Pakistan, playing overseas, winning in the sub-continent.

"It seems like the best Aussie teams in the past it's non-negotiable you've got to win at home every summer, but I feel like we've got a real squad of high-class players that can step in at any time."

Green shines

Allrounder Cameron Green is another player to shine this summer and Cummins admits he did not fully appreciate just how good the West Aussie is.

"I just love that he's stayed patient even in the short bursts he's had. He's had a huge impact on the game," Cummins added.

"I feel really lucky to be able to call on him. He's a genuine fifth-bowling option, he's not a last resort, he's there to take wickets."
