Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood continue build-up to Australia return

Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood will continue their preparation to return to international action playing for ACT Comets this week, while Australia tries to get in position to launch their strongest pace attack for the first time since their collapse in South Africa.

The pair will take the field against Western Australia in a Futures League game at Chisholm Oval in Canberra from Monday, having won a good workload last week in a previous Futures League game, where each one sent 22 supervisions.

Cummins and Hazlewood have not played for Australia since the final Test of the controversial series earlier this year, as both recovered from a back injury that kept them out of the series against Pakistan in the UAE.

has been carefully managed before a busy summer home that begins with the one-day series against South Africa before the arrival of India for a full tour followed by a brief visit from Sri Lanka in January.

Last month, Hazlewood was named vice-captain of the Pruebas team with Mitchell Marsh.

If both were approved and selected for the ODI against South Africa, beginning in Perth on November 4. There is a chance that Australia could rally its first-rate attack if the Mitchell Starc heel picked up in Abu Dhabi is not serious.

Starc had an exploration after the conclusion of the second test, where he only played. Seven shots in the second innings, and although it has remained in the T20 team, it is unlikely to take a chance.
