profile

Patrick Cummins made an instant impact as a 17-year old on the Australian domestic scene. In his first match, he was drafted in the New South Wales side in a Big Bash match against Tasmania. Cummins ended the game with figures of 3-29 from his four overs.

The teenage sensation came back to haunt Tasmania at Hobart, in the Big Bash, bagging his career best figures of 4/16. He ended the series with 11 wickets in six matches, hence becoming the highest wicket-taker of the 2010-11 Big Bash season. Cummins’ efforts paid rich dividends as he became one of the few fresh faces in Australia’s Twenty20 squad for their tour to South Africa in 2011. On his international debut in the 1st T20I, his figures of 3-25 were deemed impressive enough to grant him a Test call-up for the series against South Africa. His debut was a memorable one as he bagged 7 wickets and subsequently the Man of the Match award. Incidentally, all his debuts in the three formats came against the same opponent, South Africa.

The tall, lanky lad was a part of Australia’s Under-19 squad in the Quadrangular series, and was then named in the T20I squad ahead of the 2012 World Twenty20. Later that year, he was signed up by the Sydney Sixers ahead of the Champions League T20. In 2014, Pat Cummins will play for the Kolkata franchise as he gets his first taste of the Indian T20 League.
