Pat Cummins eyes a startling Test debut – Cricket News Update

Team Australia’s young and talented pacer, Pat Cummins, is keen to stage his Test debut in the 2nd match of the ongoing series against South Africa, and steer his side to series-levelling success with his marvellous performances.

The teenager claims that he can bowl well with the red ball as it swings and moves more easily. He hopes that he can be as impressive in longer version as he has been in shorter formats.

With just 3 First-Class matches to his name, the fast bowler considers himself quite ripe and ready for the most prestigious and toughest form of international cricket.

Talking to the media today, Cummins said, “I haven't played enough but I really enjoy playing the longer form. With the red ball as well, there's more opportunities to swing the ball, and when you can get the ball swinging and moving, it's probably the most enjoyable in cricket. It's the toughest contest, so from that point of view it's the one I enjoy the most.”

Cummo appeared on international stage last month, playing 3 ODI and 2 T20I matches during the current tour. He stunned all by grabbing 5 wickets each in the two formats. His bowling style and stamina impressed the national selectors who may decide to launch him in the Test cricket too.

The young guy has paid tribute to his mentor, Craig McDermott, for his inspiring teachings which have enabled him to evolve into a quality pacer at this age.

He told, “Billy' [McDermott] has been great. He was probably in a similar position to me growing up so he's really someone to look up to. It was almost two years later when he got the shot back, and obviously the rest is history."

Cummins is optimist about his berth in the Test squad that is to be announced by tomorrow. Some analysts suggest that his inclusion in the playing XI will prove to be helpful for the Kangaroos to win the match.

Remember, the Aussies lost the last game disgracefully by 8 wickets. Much to their dishonour, they registered the fourth lowest total of their history by scoring just 47 all out in an innings.
