With a name like Patrick Cummins, it’s no surprise that Pat has Irish heritage. Born in Westmead near the Blue Mountains, he has two brothers and two sisters who all love sport (one of his brothers plays professional cricket in Wales). From a close family, Pat has forgiven his sister for helping him lose the top of his finger as a three year-old. An exciting fast bowler who captured the attention of fans last season, injury hasn’t hindered his ability too much.
Pat always hoped to play cricket for Australia and is studying a Bachelor of Business course part-time at University. He hopes to move into a career in marketing when he finishes playing professionally. With a promising cricketing future ahead, the business world will have to wait for now.
