The Ashes 2021-22: Pat Cummins backs Usman Khawaja to hold Test spot after SCG centuries

Pat Cummins has given every indication he believes Usman Khawaja should play in Hobart, backing the in-form batsman to remain in Australia’s best team.

Khawaja has remained adamant he expects to be left out of the Ashes series finale, despite becoming just the 17th Australian to hit twin tons in the same Test.

After coming in for the COVID-19 infected Travis Head, Khawaja had the best Test of his career with scores of 137 and 101no in the SCG draw against England.

Head is expected to return after also impressing with 248 runs at 62 this summer, making the No.5 spot his own before coming down with the virus.
