PAT CUM­MINS’ im­pres­sive per­for­mances against South Africa dur­ing the T20 se­ries has sud­denly el­e­vated his World Cup chances, after he was picked to re­place Mitchell John­son for the re­main­der of the ODI se­ries against AB de Vil­liers’ team. George Bai­ley will cap­tain the Aus­tralians for the re­main­der of the se­ries against the Proteas. There is gen­uine con­cern in Aus­tralia’s ranks that Michael Clarke, who pulled a ham­string in the se­ries opener on Fri­day, could miss the Tests against In­dia and pos­si­bly even the World Cup.
