Cummins reveals the bowler he tried to imitate as a youngster
In this ongoing coronavirus crisis, cricketers from all quarters are busy interacting with fans on social media platforms. Earlier, we saw Australia opener David Warner coming up with super cool dance moves with his wife Candice Warner to woo the fans on social media.
Now, Australian pacer Pat Cummins who had a terrific 2019 shared some interesting things during a Facebook live chat.
While talking to sports presenter Ridhima Pathak on Sony Sports India, the world-class fast bowler answered several questions. One of the questions was related to a bowler who Pat Cummins tried to imitate as a youngster.
The 27-year-old fast bowler had recalled the times when he grew up watching the Australian national cricket team. He said that during that time, the Aussie team was full of several superstar players.
“I grew up in such a great time for Australian cricket. We had an absolute superstar team; every single player was a superstar, so it kind of change depending on who was going well that particular day. I loved Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist, Matt (Matthew) Hayden,” said Pat Cummins.
Coming to the fast bowler who he imitated while growing up, Pat Cummins added that he loved watching the former Aussie pacer Brett Lee.
Cummins went on to term Brett as his favourite bowler. Right from his hairstyle to the bowling action and trademark celebrations, Pat Cummins totally loved everything Lee did during his era.
“And for the fast bowlers; Glenn McGrath, I loved Brett Lee with his blonde hair and his big celebrations, his long run-up and always trying to bowl fast, so he was probably my favourite and even someone like Shane Warne bowling leg-spin, I always loved watching him bowl,” added Cummins.
