Ashes digest: Pat Cummins wants to emulate Mitchell Johnson

Ashes digest: Pat Cummins wants to emulate Mitchell Johnson”

Australia quick Pat Cummins wants to replicate Mitchell Johnson and destroy England's batting line-up when the Ashes gets underway, but the 24-year-old is unsure whether his body can withstand the rigours of a five-match series.

Cummins is now on ice for the final week before the Ashes series with Australia taking extra precautions after his horror run of injuries.

"Every spell I bowled over there was not much swing so I just ran in and bowled the fastest I could".

Cummins burst onto the global scene in 2011, taking 7-117 on his debut against South Africa at the Wanderers but he had to wait six years to play in his second Test after numerous injury problems.

In a report published by cricbuzz, Cummins said that he would like to play a similar role in 2017-18 Ashes.

Mitchell Starc says pace partner Josh Hazlewood's unerring line and length will allow his fellow bowlers to let rip at England's batsmen in the Ashes Test series. He has opted to stay out of the Sheffield Shield game for New South Wales and focusing on bowling in the nets in preparation for the forthcoming series. The last few years I'd play a couple of games and I got sore or didn't really feel quite up to first-class cricket.

When asked about his hopes of playing in a full series, he added: "I feel like I'm in the best position I can be, but we'll have to wait and see". I feel like I'm in a really different position to what I was the last few years.

"Coming through Bangladesh with the heat and everything I thought "it can not get much harder than this", he said.

Mitchell Johnson had scalped 37 wickets at 13.9 in 2013-14 Ashes, including the best figures of 7 for 40. They missed a lot of cricket early in their careers.

"I think it has changed me", Cummins said. "Now I'm at the stage where I don't have to worry about it", he added.

Fireworks are expected when Cummins is thrown the ball in the first Ashes Test starting on November 23.
