Cummins has all its experienced players back in the Test side. David Warner announced his retirement from Test cricket after the series against Pakistan. He retired from ODI cricket after the World Cup and only plays T20I cricket.

Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Scott Boland and Nathan Lyon form the bowling core. Steve Smith’s experiment at the top after Warner’s withdrawal has not produced results so far.
