Personal life

Pat Cummins was born on 8 May 1993 in Westmead, New South Wales. In 2010, Pat Cummins debuted for the Blue Mountains in the first-grade cricket. He caught selectors’ attention with his performance in the 2011 Big Bash League playing for Perth Scorchers where he ended up as the tournament`s joint-highest wicket-taker with Nathan Lyon. He was also awarded Man of the Match in the finals for his excellent bowling figures of 4/16.

Test Cricket

So far he has taken 143 wickets in just 30 Test matches and has been ranked number one Test bowler in the ICC rankings for over a year. In 2020, the ICC named Cummins Test Cricketer of the Year.
