Pat Cummins will miss the final Test against India, with Steve Smith set to continue as captain at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Cummins has chosen to stay home to be with his ailing mother, Maria.
The Aussie captain returned home after leading the team in the first two Tests. Smith took over in the third game in Indore as the visitors won by 9 wickets.
Nathan Lyon, who took 11 wickets, was named the Player of the Match. Usman Khawaja’s 60 in the first innings gave Australia a healthy lead, and Travis Head’s unbeaten 49 in the second innings ensured that his team chased down the 76-run target with nine wickets to spare.
