"I think it'll definitely get the adrenaline up like in a Test match," Cummins was quoted as saying. "It doesn't happen too often - you'll see our egos be put to the test, we'll be going at each other I think. Maybe (played Smith before) in a T20, but not that I can remember.
"I think personally from my point of view it's about trying to get myself 100 per cent ready for a Test match. I haven't played a first-class game in a few months so it's going to be trying to bowl long spells, get the ball swinging, try and think of ways to get batsmen out. These guys are really good players just like the English Test side. There's no really obvious flaw so you've got to try to work a batsman out. It's going to be a good hit-out, everyone is in good form."
