PAT CUM­MINS

Fi­nally re­al­is­ing his po­ten­tial as a front-line bowler after his tan­ta­lis­ing, teenaged de­but in South Africa back in 2011. Fa­mously, Cum­mins didn’t play his next Test for an­other five-and-a-half years, as a com­bi­na­tion of in­juries and bad tim­ing kept him on the side­line. Played 13 con­sec­u­tive Tests through the South Africa se­ries, bowl­ing more overs than any other Aussie quick with a yield of 59 wick­ets. Rested for the tour to the UAE, and no-one would blame team man­age­ment for it.
