Looking back at the recently-concluded season, Wadia said the umpiring error to call a short-run when it wasn't, cost the team a playoff berth though it did not show the required consistency in the first year under captain and coach combine of Rahul and Kumble.
For Rohit, the chatter on the outside regarding his injury and his subsequent participation in the IPL play-offs, didn't matter much.
Cummins has been named in both the white and red-ball squads as vice-captain. The limited-overs series is to be held in Sydney and Canberra ahead of the four-match Test series, beginning in Adelaide on 17 December.
