Cummins joins Australia A squad for UK tour

Injured fast bowler will continue with rehab, not feature in tour games

Pat Cummins, the Australian pace bowler, will travel with the Australia A squad to the UK as part of his ongoing rehabilitation programme, Cricket Australia (CA) said on Friday (May 10). But the 20-year-old pacer will not play in any tour games, said Pat Howard, the CA executive general manager. Instead he will continue to work on his “customised programme” with Centre of Excellence Head Coach Troy Cooley’s guidance, added Howard.  

Cummins developed back soreness during the Champions League Twenty20 tournament in South Africa last year and was then diagnosed in November with an early stage stress fracture. He has not played since in either domestic or international matches.  

“Depending on his continued progression, he may play in intra-squad and warm up matches if this is deemed appropriate based on his workloads, but there is no intention for Pat to play in any of the tour games,” said Howard.  

He added that Cricket Australia saw it as a priority to continue Cummins’ progression as a fast bowler. “The aim is to have Pat available and prepared for Australia A series in South Africa in July/August,” Howard said.  

Cummins has a history of injuries since a man-of-the-match bowling performance in his only Test, against South Africa in Johannesburg in November 2011, and is seen as one of Australia’s most exciting prospects.  

The Australia A squad will leave for the British Isles tour on May 25 and play matches in Scotland, Ireland and England beginning June 7.
