Australian captain Pat Cummins says Sydney Test was not an India tour audition for spinner Ashton Agar

Ashton Agar is guaranteed a spot on next month’s tour of India, but Australia are no certainty to play two frontline spinners throughout the four-Test series.

In Sydney, Agar endured a difficult return to Test cricket after five years out, bowling 22 wicketless overs as Australia failed in their bid to force a win against South Africa.

Captain Pat Cummins insisted afterwards that the match was not an audition for India, particularly given the surface did not break up as expected after lengthy rain delays.

Australia will name their squad for the tour this week, with Agar expected to be one of four spinners, alongside Nathan Lyon, Todd Murphy and Mitchell Swepson or Adam Zampa.
