Young Australian pacer Pat Cummins has returned home from Australia A’s tour of South Africa after complaining of back pain.

According to Cricket Next, Australia A physio Kevin Sims confirmed the report and said, “Pat reported some left rib, back pain during the Australia A game against India ‘A’ last week. With only Wednesday’s final remaining in the series, the decision was made for him to return to Australia to assess the injury.”

Cummins is considered as an exciting future prospect for Australia and has featured in one Test for Australia so far against South Africa in 2011,in which he picked up seven wickets.
