Australia need to find a way to outlast Pujara in upcoming series: Cummins

Melbourne, May 23 (UNI) Australian pacer Pat Cummins has praised Cheteshwar Pujara's ability to bat for long hours and said they will need to 'take their medicine' to outlast one of the mainstays of India's batting order in the forthcoming Test series, to be played at home later this year.
Pujara was the architect behind India's historic 2-1 Test series win in Australia in 2018-19, ending up with 521 runs. He also faced 1258 deliveries during the course of the four-match Test series, blunting the highly-rated Australian bowling line-up.
"He (Pujara) had a mammoth series for them (in 2018-19). He's one of those players that'll take his time, he's in his own little bubble and he doesn't get disturbed by too much," Cummins told cricket.com.au.
''We've got to find a way to outlast him if he bats the way he did last time. There wasn't too much in the pitch so you couldn't manufacture anything. So I think (we need to) take our medicine a bit more and try and outlast him,'' he added.
Cummins hopes the conditions this time would be in Australia's favour, saying they would need to get the likes of Pujara out of his comfort zone to stop India.
"But, we'll wait and see. Hopefully the wickets are a bit bouncier (and) we've got a few more options," he said.
Cummins, the number one ranked bowler in Tests, believes that he has evolved as a bowler from the 2018-19 tour.
''I think each Test I play, I learn a little bit about my own bowling. I've probably played 10 or 15 Tests since that series and I feel like with each series I get a little bit better," he said.
''There were a few lessons; the first lesson I learnt was how brutal Test cricket is. They might bat all of day one and there's nothing that'll stop them batting all day two unless we take wickets, which they did a few times. They showed us what you have to be, what level you have to be at, to be the best team in the world,'' he added.
