It's better to stay a bit underdone than overdone: Cummins on lack of game time ahead of WTC final

London, Jun 4 (PTI) Australia captain Pat Cummins doesn't mind staying a bit undercooked going into the high-octane WTC final against India rather than playing two months of T20 cricket and landing up jaded for a gruelling English summer.

Asked if the bulk of the Australian side (save Cameron Green, David Warner in IPL and Marnus Labuschagne in County cricket) would be a bit rusty with virtually no game time since the India series, the skipper on Sunday begged to differ.

"Breaks are rare to come by," said the modern day great, who has 217 Test wickets from 49 games.
