Injury-prone Australian speedster Pat Cummins is eyeing a return to Test cricket if he performs well for the Sydney Thunders in the upcoming season of Big Bash League starting December 18th. 

Labelled as a future leader of the Australian bowling arsenal, Cummins spent a considerable amount of time with the national team coaches during the first Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy at Adelaide. 

After playing his only Test back in 2011 against South Africa as an 18-year-old, Cummins is eyeing returning to the Test cricket in Australia’s upcoming away series against the West Indies and England after the World Cup. Recently, Cummins played a round of grade cricket for club side Penrith and said that he’ll be ready for the Sheffield Shield when it resumes in February.

Cummins was quoted in saying: 

“It gave me a lot of confidence playing those (international) ODIs and T20s, you’re never really sure of where you’re at until you play and I probably surprised myself. I was really happy with how it all went and fortunately we won a few games.

“Hopefully I can carry that into the T20s (but) Test cricket is what everyone’s really keen to play and I can’t wait to get back to long-form first-class cricket and trying to get a spot in that Test side.”
