“We have a big series next year in India, so this (Sri Lanka Tests) can really help develop and fast track our batters,” Cummins was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.

Australia are currently in the island nation, playing the two-test match series.

The Down Under side defeated Sri Lanka by 10 wickets in the first Test at Galle. Nathan Lyon took nine wickets, including a five-wicket haul, while Usman Khawaja scored 71 and Player of the Match Cameron Green made 77.
