Bio

Having burst onto the scene as a 17-year-old for NSW in the 2010-11 Big Bash tournament, Pat Cummins was quickly identified as a future star and became the youngest player ever to earn a central contract with Cricket Australia. 

Despite having only a handful of first-class games to his name, he was then thrown into the deep end of Test cricket against the might of South Africa in Johannesburg in 2011. 

The speedster showed no signs of nerves, however, taking 6-79 in the second innings and hitting the winning runs to earn man-of-the-match honours in Australia’s narrow win. 

But a series of long-term injuries, no doubt caused a whippy action that is capable of generating speeds of up to 150km/h, saw the hype surrounding the western Sydney product quieten down in the years following his dream debut. 

But having worked with Cricket Australia’s medical staff to slightly re-model his action, the best years of Cummins’s career are surely still ahead of him.
