Confident of continuing my good show at the World Cup, says Australia’s Pat Cummins

By Cricnwin Staff


Pat Cummins turned out to be Australia’s best bowler in their first ODI series win in India since 2009.

Uncertain of his white-ball form before arriving in India, Cummins took 14 wickets at 15.71 in the five matches and would have won the Man-of-the-Series award if not for Usman Khawaja's two-centuries and as many half-centuries.

"I've played a little bit of one-day cricket before but it felt like I hadn't really clicked in this format," Cummins said after Australia registered a 3-2 series win.

"It felt like I bowled well in the Australian summer, so glad it keeps on clicking. Hopefully it continues for the World Cup.”

Cummins was part of Australia's World Cup-winning squad but was preferred for only two games.

With injuries to Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood, the 25-year-old Cummins could lead Australia’s pace attack at the 2019 World Cup, which starts May 30. Australia will open their campaign against Afghanistan in Bristol on June 1.
