"Whoever is the 11 that comes at us doesn't really bother us too much". "I did all the rehab - the only thing I didn't do was play a match but there's Twenty20 going on at the minute and there's no games to play". Everyone's got to contribute. "So all our efforts will go into that".

"I kind of had it in the back of my mind but forgot about it until (Nathan) Lyon ran up to me and patted me on the back, ' Cummins said of his record".

"Whoever misses out it's going to be tough". "The one who will be twelfth man it will be even tougher, whether that be Sidds (Siddle) or Josh (Hazlewood) or James Pattinson, whether it's Starcy (Mitchell Starc) or Pat Cummins, they are all very, very good bowlers".

England are likely to hand Jofra Archer a Test debut at Lord's and Langer spoke about the need to "wear him down".

'Most of our guys have seen him in white-ball cricket.

"It's quite dry though".

"I think the good thing was, the first couple of days we were behind in the game and with each days we felt like we were getting more and more into the game", he said. "But whether it's a green-top or a dry wicket, we have really good options and that's nice as a coach and selector".
