Australia Test skipper Pat Cummins has opted out of the third Test against India due to family emergency and his deputy Steve Smith will lead the side in the contest, starting March 1 in Indore.

Cummins had flown back home after Australia lost the second Test by six wickets inside three days, last week.

According to, “The family emergency that saw Pat Cummins dash back to Australia after the second Test will see the fast bowler remain at home for next week’s third match.” The Australian skipper’s mother “is ill and in palliative care”, according to media reports.
