Pat Cummins set to make comeback in Australian squad

Injury-prone Australian pacer Pat Cummins is eyeing a return to the Test arena for next summer's Ashes and is confident about his long history of breakdowns is behind him.

The 23-year-old will return to the Australian side for the first time in 15 months for their three-game one-day series against New Zealand, which starts on Sunday at the SCG.

He could be rushed back into the Australian Test squad for the upcoming series against Pakistan or next year's tour of India.

Pat Cummins said,


The Ashes next summer is a massive goal. At the moment it's key for me to get back in the side and assert myself in the ODI side and play a full summer and then after that I want to get back and play some first-class cricket with an eye on the Ashes side.


Cummins burst onto the scene with a seven-wicket man-of-the-match performance on Australia's Test tour of South Africa as an 18-year-old in 2011, but has been hobbledby injuries since.

He has not played another Test since his debut and has managed just 18 one-day internationals, in which he has taken 33 wickets.
