THE THIRD TEST MATCH: ENTRY OF CUMMINS
Patrick Cummins (23) to be offered a chance to get into the third test match between India and Australia. The 23 year old got an opportunity due to the injury of Mitchell Starch.
But the prime contribution from Cummins came when he took 8 wickets for New South Wales 4 for 57 and 4 for 47 in his second innings. The man is all set to make a comeback in International Test Match since 2011 where his stunning figures of 7 wickets came against South Africa.
Mitchell faced a stress fracture on his right foot during 2nd test match against India and forced to move away from the team. This is the prime cause why is Patrick making such a long jump from Australia to Ranchi, India.
It was clearly confirmed by Hohn’s that in selecting Pat, ” we are looking for a strike bowling replacement option. On his return, Pat too has impressed with outstanding performances in ODI’s , Twenty20 and Big Bash League”.
Firstly Pat with Hazelwood and Starc were choosen for the upcoming Ashes but this plan shattered when Cummins was selected for the third match at Ranchi.
There are lot of hopes from Pat Cummins because he will be replacing Mitchell Starc who created magic in Pune by getting wickets and a half century too turning the test to their way.
Starting with the blast at the age of 18 now the paceman is looking like a fire against the top players of India.
