Advice from an Australian Legend for Pat Cummins before the 4th Ashes Test

The ongoing Ashes series between England and Australia's cricket teams is getting more intense with each passing game. After taking a 2-0 lead, the visitors faced a three-wicket defeat in the third match, and the series now stands at 2-1. Australia skipper Pat Cummins has been outstanding in the series so far. As both teams are now preparing for the fourth Test, the question arises whether the team management will rest Cummins to manage his workload.
Australia has been tactically rotating their pacers turn-by-turn to manage their workload. However, Cummins has featured in all three matches until now, as he is also the captain. He has taken a total of 15 wickets in three matches and is currently the second-highest wicket-taker.
While Praising the performance of the 30-year-old cricketer, Australia legend Glenn McGrath stated that Cummins has the ability to replicate his heroics in the last two remaining matches.
McGrath said that "If he's fine, feeling good, enjoying it, switched on, and still mentally focused, I don't like having a rest for the sake of having a rest. I know it's a different mindset these days—it's not about the XI, it's about the squad, and the nature of the beast is that we put a lot of stress on our bodies. But I do believe in survival of the fittest."
While emphasising the importance of consistency and dedication, McGrath said, I'm a fan of giving it everything, maintaining yourself, and if you get injured, someone else gets an opportunity. That keeps you on edge every game, performing at your best."
