Sydney: Jul 6, 2013

Australia pacer Pat Cummins believes the 23-year-old right-arm pacer James Pattinson will be a “shock to the system” of England batsmen in the Ashes 2013.

Cummins, who was ruled out of the Ashes in England is now preparing hard to get back in action and be ready for the return series Down Under, reports Sydney Morning Herald.

The 20-year-old pacer missed out on a second consecutive summer due to a back stress fracture. Cummins revealed he has tweaked his action a little bit and is now itching to get back into action when England arrive in Australia in November.

Meanwhile, Cummins predicts Pattinson will create lot of problems for the English batsmen.

Cummins said, “I knew a while ago that I probably wouldn’t be ready for the Ashes, but it was good spending time over there with the A team and seeing them prepare.

“I’m genuinely excited and nervous for them. Hopefully I can bowl well at the start of the Shield season and get into the summer back here. I think Patto [Pattinson] is going to be a big shock to their system. They haven’t faced him before, and I think he’s world class. I think he’s going to be our main man,” he said.

Talking about his injury which has kept him out of action for a long time, Cummins said, “I knew pretty much straight away it was going to be a long road, not only to getting back to 100 per cent, but to nailing down any changes. But I’m really confident now that all those changes are going to stick. It’s trying to change things that I’ve been doing for 15 to 16 years … I’m fully fit now, so I’m itching to play games again.”

Cummins added: “When there is a light at the end of the tunnel you can get yourself up for training and getting back. It’s when it’s an undefined time and you don’t know how long it’s going to be, that’s when it’s a bit harder.”

The right-arm pacer could make a quick return to the national side — playing in the limited-overs series after the Ashes. But his priority remains a strong start to the First-Class season with New South Wales.

Talking about the new Australian head coach Darren Lehmann, Cummins said: “I’d never really had much to do with him before. But he just loves talking about cricket, and is just really relaxed and you can be really confident around him. I think he’ll do a great job.”
