Looking ahead to the second Test, Langer said picking the XI would be a tough job as all the pacers were in the hunt for a spot.
"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".
"We did not come here to win the Edgbaston Test, we've not come here to get a hundred at Lord's", Langer told reporters on Monday. "Those back-to-back Test matches depends a lot on how much he bowls".
Siddle's relative lack of pace could put him at risk of being dropped in favour of Hazlewood, although it would be a huge call to axe somebody described by Langer as "almost the bowler of the game" after the first Test.
"In theory, you would like him (Cummins) to play all five Tests". All those things will come into it. It's up to the individuals, not so much our game plan against him.
"It's unfortunate for them that he went down early in the first game, it's no secret that he is a massive loss" said Cummins, who last week became the second fastest Australian to 100 Test wickets as he reached the mark in his 21st outing.
Langer also said that he is curious to see how Jofra Archer performs.
Leach's last appearance at Lord's saw him famously score 92 as a nightwatchman as England overcame a dismal first innings to beat Ireland in an Ashes warm-up.
"I haven't played a lot of red ball coming into the first day's play, and I think just trying to find that tempo of test cricket, it's slightly different to white ball". Most grounds it's the first thing to look at but here, there's so much else to admire and love about being here.
Anderson's absence opens the door for Archer only a month after he bowled the dramatic Super Over in the World Cup final win over New Zealand. You also have Josh Hazlewood who has played 40-odd Tests and is a gun and Mitch Starc who took 10 wickets in his last Test match.
However horses for courses has been a key part of his blueprint to breaking Australia's 18-year Ashes drought in England. "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".
'It's the same for everyone in Test cricket, get them into their second, third and fourth spells'.
