Pat Cummins has special plans after blowing away Pakistan at MCG, ‘wants to chill’

Pakistan vs Australia: Pat Cummins bagged five wickets in both the innings, to push the visitors out of the match.

Australia skipper Pat Cummins can’t seem to put a foot wrong these days. In the second Pakistan vs Australia Test, not only he bagged 10 wickets, to take his side to a series win, but also completed his 250 wickets in the longest format. His bowling effort also meant that Pakistan has not won a Test Down Under since 1999, extending their losing streak to 16 matches.

After winning the match Cummins said, “Love playing here at the MCG. Love the build-up around Christmas. You got a few options here, there’s a bit of seam over the last few years. I like a bit of up-and-down bounce. The run-up is nice. A little bit twitchy, they were batting pretty nicely, happy with that Rizwan wicket.”

Cummins went on to highlight the key moment of the match, that really sealed the deal for them. “Anything above 300 was the aim, we had enough to bowl at, a little bit tight. Steve’s and Marsh’s partnership really got us back in the game. We were behind, they were bowling well, had their tails up.

“That was a huge partnership. Even at 4/16, the dressing room was calm. Every week, it feels like another match-winner stands up. Crazy year, with lots of success will remember 2023 as one of the special ones. Got an extra day off, chill for a few days, and get ready for the next Test.”
