Cricket Australia (CA) advises that fast bowler Pat Cummins will travel with the Australia A squad on the VB Tour of the British Isles as part of his ongoing rehabilitation program.
Commenting on Cummins’ Executive General Manager Pat Howard said: “Pat Cummins is not being added to the Australia A squad but rather continuing work on the areas identified in his customised program under COE Head Coach Troy Cooley’s guidance. Depending on his continued progression, he may play in intra-squad and warm up matches if this is deemed appropriate based on his workloads but there is no intention for Pat to play in any of the tour games.
“Pat is a 2013 AIS scholarship holder and has an individualised development plan and as part of that we see it as a priority that he continues his progression working closely with Troy and physiotherapist David Beakley who will be with the Australia A squad.
“The aim is to have Pat available and prepared for Australia A series in South Africa in July/August,” Howard said.
The Australia A squad will depart for the UK on 25 May.
