He said the experience was unlike any they had ever had before and the whole squad was learning all the time during the tour.
The Ashes-winning captain further said that the whole team was looking forward to the First Test match and very much looking forward to stepping into the front of the packed crowd at Pindi Cricket Stadium.
He added that the Australian team was thrilled at the prospect of inspiring a generation of cricket fans in Pakistan who had not seen top-flight cricket at their home in a very long time.
Cummins also did not forget to thanked the authorities and all personnel involved in realizing this tour. Cummins said that the security provided made the entire squad feel very safe and comfortable because they had been given the best security.
Cummins explained that this tour was an experience of a lifetime for many players in this squad as it might be the only opportunity for them to tour Pakistan during their playing career.
