The 21-year-old fast bowler will be monitored by Australia's medical staff this week with his availability for Wednesday's clash against Afghanistan and Sunday's crucial showdown with Sri Lanka to be confirmed, reports cricket.com.au.

A Cricket Australia spokesperson on Monday said Cummins reported an issue after the New Zealand but scans showed "nothing serious".
