Pat Cummins has been brilliant for Australia in white ball cricket over the last few months. He was instrumental in the series win against India, picking up 14 wickets in 5 matches at an astounding average of 15.71. In the World Cup too he is doing great and has scalped 9 wickets from 4 matches at an average of 18.78.

In the last game, Cummins starred with the ball to help Australia to a nervy win over Pakistan. He was brilliant with 3/33 off 10 overs, showing why he is Australia’s go-to bowling star as Aaron Finch’s side looked to defend an under-par 307.

Currently placed at No. 1 in the ICC Test rankings and No. 6 in ODIs, Cummins is a vital cog in the Australian bowling wheel. Along with Mitchell Starc, he can wreak havoc in the opposition ranks with the new ball in hand.

He will pose a major threat to the already under-fire Sri Lankan batsmen.
