“I have learned that the first sessions of this series will be for two and a half hours every Friday,” he added. There will be a one-hour lunch break for prayer. Because it is a holy day of the week. We are always learning something here.
Cummins, who has taken 18 wickets in 39 Tests for Australia, said: “We don’t know anything. From a cricketing point of view, we have not played in Pakistan since Mark Taylor became the captain in 1996 and performing in this situation is a big challenge for every player. And from a personal point of view, we want to enjoy every moment of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
