Aussie paceman Pat Cummins hopeful for World T20 return

Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins is hoping to return for the ICC World Twenty20 tournament to be played in India next year following his latest injury woes.

The 22-year-old, who has been ruled out of the upcoming Test tour of Bangladesh due to a stress fracture in his back. The injury has also ruled him out of this year’s Big Bash League for Sydney Thunder.

Meanwhile, Tasmanian all-rounder James Faulkner has been appointed as Cummins’s replacement.

“A stress fracture is a long injury,” the New South Welshman said.

“The goal I’ve set in my head at the moment is the World T20 early next year, but it’s all a long way away.”

The ICC World T20 will be held in India between 11 March – 3rd April, meaning the right-arm speedster is set to miss Aussie’s summer cricket schedule at home and the tour of New Zealand in February.
