Australian pacer Pat Cummins, who is returning home after injuring himself midway through the series, has made a public show of faith in his team-mates, backing them to win the one-day series against England.

Cummins sustained a medium grade side strain in the one-day series opener against England at Lord's on Friday.

The Australians suffered an emphatic six-wicket loss overnight to trail England 2-0 in the current series.

The loss of Cummins to injury is seen as a major blow to Australians chances in the series.

But the young bowler believes his team-mates will bounce back from the defeat to secure the series, reports.

"Thanks for the messages, bad timing but the injury shouldn't take too long. Tough day but back the boys to win last 3 games and the series! Cummins tweeted this morning.

Cricket Australia officials have said the rising star of world cricket won't play again until September's World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka.
