While the English conditions might tempt others to be overly aggressive, Boland's game plan remains simple: hit the right areas and let the ball do the work.
"Someone like Scotty, it's just a really simple game-plan – you hit your good areas and you stay there all day and hopefully the ball will do the work for you. He's had a few bowls over here now and has looked good. But he looks good whenever he bowls," Cummins added.
Captain Pat Cummins, in his statement, assured fans that Australia's final XI would follow their familiar balance, featuring five batters followed by allrounder Cameron Green and wicketkeeper Alex Carey.
Cummins' words suggest that there will be "no surprises" in the selected lineup, aiming to leverage the team's collective strength and experience to secure victory against the formidable Indian side.
