Tye, who has five wickets from the five T20Is he has played Australia, will look to use his experience of having played in the Indian conditions.

Australia will play three T20I against India in Ranchi, Guwahati, and Hyderabad on October 7, 10 and 13 respectively. However, in all T20 cricket, the 30-year-old has 74 wickets from 51 games at 21.54 and widely regarded as a T20 specialist back at home. Cummins has been touted to be Australia's third pacer, sharing the attack with Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood - both of whom are already nursing injuries - when England come knocking in November.

The Australian team arrived in India to face the heat not just from the opposition but also from the weather. The 12 wickets made him the highest wicket taker for the IPL franchise.
