The third 50-over game of the series is scheduled to take in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday, where Pakistan will be looking to make a comeback and stay alive in the series.

“He’s chomping at the bit to get back bowling, so I think his holiday here in Dubai is over,” said Nathan Lyon,” said Nathan Lyon.

Australia have been dented by the injury of their paceman, Jhye Richardson, who dislocated his shoulder while fielding in the second ODI and is struggling for fitness for the upcoming World Cup 2019 in England.

“I think I’m back available, I’m going to have a bowl today,” Cummins said on Tuesday. “It was nice to have a two-game break. Jhye is not around so we need another bowler in there.”

Pakistan have been struggling in the series so far with their six key players sitting out including their skipper Sarfraz Ahmed.
