Australia captain Pat Cummins believes his team have created a career-defining legacy with their World Cup win, after a long six months on the road in India and England.
“I think they have created their own legacy,” Cummins said of his side as he touched down at Sydney Airport.
“A World Cup, you only get one chance every four years and especially playing somewhere like India, it’s hard. Even before the tournament, we knew playing ODI cricket in India, it’s a pretty tough assignment. To be pitted up against the rest of the world and come away with a medal, it doesn’t get any better than that. We couldn’t have planned for much better. So a pretty satisfied group.”
Captain Pat Cummins and pacer Josh Hazelwood landed in Sydney on Wednesday morning while Head coach Andrew McDonalds and Allrounder Mitchell Marsh touched down at the Melbourne Airport. Marnus Labuschagne landed in Brisbane.
Seven members of the squad have remained in India to feature in the looming Twenty20 series, while the other half have returned to prepare for the Test summer.
