Cummins said,  "We’re going to have a bat. Looks like a good wicket, not sure how it’ll change in the 100 overs. Good to get game time for everyone, don’t want to go into a World Cup cold. Results haven’t gone our way but good day to change that. Different conditions here but we’ve played a lot over here so no surprises. We’ve made five changes, Starc and Maxwell are back. Tanveer Sangha is making his debut."
