Clint McKay predicts big things for Pat Cummins
Colombo: Australian fast bowler Clint McKay has urged the cricket fraternity to watch Pat Cummins, a superstar in the making during the forthcoming World Twenty20 tournament.
Though he is in the dark about his own selection in the final eleven, McKay has given tips to Cummins to have an "unbelievable" impact on the tournament.
The 19-year-old gave a preview of his capabilities in a contrived "super over" during a friendly against New Zealand.
Having taken 2-13 in the match, Cummins conceded just one single from the super over in which New Zealand captain Ross Taylor and lower order batsman Doug Bracewell could hardly lay bat on his thunderbolts.
He dismissed Bracewell with his last ball, before Shane Watson and David Warner waltzed to 13 from their over.
A leading Australian daily quoted Mckay, as saying: ‘‘He (Cummins) was excellent, and he’s going to be a superstar.’’
McKay added: ‘‘He will have an unbelievable impact, not only on this tournament, but on world cricket. He’s got all the attributes. He’s fast, he can swing it, he’s got a level head and people have to realise he is only 19 still. So, he’s going to have some good days and bad days and I just think we need to let him go and watch him because he’s going to be unreal.’’
