Pat Cummins said he hopes to require only one or two more matches before he can start bowling very fast. The Australian is known to be amongst the fastest bowlers in the world, but his career has been hampered by a series of injuries.

He has only played one Test for Australia in November 2011. Cummins took one wicket for 40 from his allocated four overs for Perth Scorchers in their five-run win over the Adelaide Strikers at the WACA on Thursday.

Although he was expensive, he reached speeds around 142 kmph, reported the Sydney Morning Herald. He generally bowled against the breeze in Perth on his return after a stress fracture in his back. Cummins has been known to bowl at well over 150 kmph.

Cummins is confident that it will not take him long to rediscover his rhythm and pace. ”I’m not holding back — I’m trying to rip in,” said Cummins. ”I think it may take one or two games just to remember how it is in a game and be back bowling how I was.”

“The main thing for me is accuracy — coming back and trying to bowl where I want to. There were a couple of balls that let me down. But, other than that, I was pretty happy with how I bowled.”

Perth’s fifth win of the Big Bash season guaranteed them a place in the finals, with a semi-final at home being a realistic hope.
