PROFILE

Powerfully built, with a fluid uncomplicated action, Pat Cummins looks every inch an experienced international fast bowler. It’s not until closer inspection that one realises that the man’s body belongs to a teenager, a small detail Cummins has not allowed to hold him back. At just 17, he was starring for New South Wales in Australia’s Twenty20 competition, earning domestic one-day and first-class recognition before he could legally vote. He celebrated turning 18 with three wickets in a Sheffield Shield final, a prelude to becoming the youngest centrally contracted Australian cricketer since the system’s introduction. A tour to South Africa followed, with Cummins performing solidly in the T20 and one-day Internationals without earning selection for the first Test. But after Australia were skittled out for an ignominious 47 in Cape Town, the call went out for a baggy-green saviour to rescue some pride. Cummins answered that call, and despite being the second-youngest Australian Test cricketer in history, he snared seven wickets and struck the matchwinning runs. A star was born. Unfortunately, injury dictated that his Test debut would be his last international action for almost a year. Although disappointing that an entire home summer passed without Cummins’ involvement, in the long term it may be to his benefit as the hype surrounding the prodigy following his man-of-the-match efforts at the Wanderers would have been impossible to sustain. Returning fit and strong, the impatient Cummins will hopefully be hurrying batsman up for Australia well into the next decade.
