The 30-year-old, who last played a T20 international in February, joins fast bowlers Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kane Richardson and Jason Behrendorff in the squad.

Cummins, who has suffered several injury setbacks in the past five years, has been rested ahead of the Ashes series against England starting in November.

Australia have already lost the ongoing one-day series against India 3-0 with two matches remaining. The T20 series begins on Oct. 7.
