Oz better than ranked 10th: Pat Cummins

Sharjah, Sep 10: Australian pacer Pat Cummins excited about playing ICC World T20, is gearing up to play against Ireland in the tournament which is starting on September 18, after Australia were placed below Ireland in ICC T20 rankings.

Cummins brimming with confidence said the opponents would get to know who will be ranked below the order during the mega event that starts on Sep 18 in Sri Lanka.

"In terms of rankings for T20s, I don't think we're anywhere near where we should be. We're a much better side than that and I think in the World Cup we'll show that," Cummins was quoted as saying to a leading daily.

Talking about his team's chances and the preparation for T20 World Cup, Cummins said that since they are playing against Pakistan and a few warm-up matches in Sri Lanka ahead of the mega event, Australians are confident of putting up a great show.

Aussie pacer was not quite happy with the team's ranking as he said that 'they were better than ranked 10th in the world'.

"After these three games we've got two trial games over in Sri Lanka before the World Cup. We're all upbeat. It's a really good time for the T20 side to get together and show that we're better than ranked 10th in the world," Cummins said.

With the final match between Australia and Pakistan scheduled on Monday, Aussies will be leaving to Colombo after the match, as they are scheduled to play their first match against Ireland on Sep 19.

But during the period, they are scheduled to play a few warm-up games, to prepare for the big event.
