A moustached, brawny Johnson, for a better want of words, had reduced the English batters to nothingness. After 4 years, at home, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/pat-cummins">Pat Cummins</a> wants to emulate his former comrade had done.</p> <p></p>In a report published by <i>cricbuzz</i>, Cummins said that he would like to play a similar role in <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/the-ashes-2017-18-200462/">2017-18 Ashes</a>. <p></p> <p></p><b>'Cannot wait to get out there'</b> <p></p> <p></p>"We saw what Mitchell Johnson did last Ashes series here - it would be a role I would love to play. As a fast bowler, it's (about) getting in their face and being relentless in everything we do. I just can't wait to get out there." <p></p> <p></p>Cummins has not played on home soil since his spectacular debut against South Africa due to injuries. He in fact made a comeback to the Test side earlier this year, playing in Bangladesh and India. <p></p> <p></p><b>'I am pumped'</b> <p></p> <p></p>"As a kid growing up, you watch a lot of Test cricket on TV. To be in that position where I might play in one, I'm pumped. It certainly felt a long way away for a while. I was pretty young when I first started playing. It all happened really quickly and didn't give me a chance to stand back and realise what I was actually doing." <p></p> <p></p><b>'Will mean a bit more when I step out on the field'</b> <p></p> <p></p>"Having those five or six years (on sidelines)... I think it will mean a bit more when I go out there. Now I'm at the stage where I don't have to worry about it (injuries). I feel like I'm in the best position I can be, but we'll have to wait and see - there's no guarantees."
