IND vs AUS: Marcus Stoinis Fit To Play Against India? Pat Cummins Says THIS
Cricket World Cup 2023: Marcus Stoinis was unable to participate in the warm-up games that were played by Australia.
Captain Pat Cummins acknowledged the importance of the team's preparation and mindset ahead of the massive match between Australia and Team India in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, which is set to take place at Chepauk Stadium.
The biggest question is whether all-around player Marcus Stoinis will be available. With his skills, he plays a major part in giving his team balance.
Marcus Stoin's availability for the match against India was questioned to which Cummins responded, "We'll announce a team tomorrow at the toss." Indeed, Stoinis is still touch and go. He's going to try out this afternoon, but he'll definitely have to clear a few obstacles beforehand. Thus, yes, we shall see.
The goal is simple for any captain guiding a team in this tournament: take home the trophy. Nearly all captains have a similar story: they witnessed a World Cup as kids, and that's when their dream journey started. Pat Cummins has a similar situation.Which World Cup experiences come to mind for you?
Yes, I did not see the live match in 1999, but I did watch the endless replays of the run-out against South Africa with them standing on the balcony of the Lords changing room. 2003. I watched a tiny bit of Andrew Symonds once; I recall that he had a really good game. I witnessed a little bit of that in 2011 when I was first playing for Australia, but 2015 is still, in my opinion, my career high point.
Even though I just participated in a few games—not the championship—being a part of that was truly unique.
In response to a question concerning the fervour he anticipates from the home team's supporters, Cummins said, "Yeah, I think there's a couple of obvious ones." It's expected that the home crowd will be boisterous and biassed, which is fantastic.
Furthermore, they've played a lot of cricket on these pitches, so it's never easy to play against someone on their home pitch, but pressure comes along with it. A billion supporters will be closely observing and encouraging them. Yes, let's proceed.
