Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins is looking forward to the next edition of the ICC-T20 Men’s World Cup, which will be held at home.
In the past, Australia was one of the most successful cricket teams. In addition to dominating Test Cricket at various points in history, they have five ICC World Cup cricket trophies for men in the Cabinet. However, they have not been able to repeat this success at the ICC T20 World Championship so far. They made it to the finals only once in six editions when they competed against Paul Collingwood’s England in 2010.

Pat Cummins, who was part of the Australian team that won the 50th World Cup at the 2015 Melbourne Cricket Ground, knows how home-based support can upgrade a team. He believes that an extra boost could help bring Australia to its first title in the shortest format next year.
“It’s huge,” he said. “I think during the one-day World Cup in 2015 you saw how the whole country came to grips with what winning this World Cup meant to so many cricket fans and how many more fans made it to cricket, so keep your fingers crossed for this finale still a lot to do, but I think it will be a lot of fun. “
Supporting the crowd is important, according to Cummins, but knowing the conditions will further support Australia’s mission. He believes that the team’s recent victories against Sri Lanka and Pakistan underscore their willingness to be at home.
“The last two series have been as good as I think we’ve played for a long time, the home advantage will always help, these fields are a bit bigger than what you could possibly do on the subcontinent or in England.
“So we know these conditions very well, we have the next 12 months to basically put together a squad, and the good thing is, as you saw in the last series, that everyone plays very well to keep.” The team together, really nail our different roles and go blazing all the weapons for the World Cup next year. “
Cummins, the top-ranked bowler in the MRF Tires ICC Test Rankings, was out of Australia’s T20I setup, having played just 20 games in that format since making his debut in October 2011, before beating Sri in five games played Lanka and Pakistan this season. He now seems to have found the right approach to succeed in the shortest version.
“I think it’s a bit different pace,” said Cummins at the bowling in T20Is. “It sounds pretty silly, you only have twenty-four balls, so you want to run in and try to beat the wicket a little bit harder, get out a little more and of course the changes – slower balls, Yorkers and the slower ball jumpers Setting the pitch is very different from Test Cricket, so it takes a little while to get used to it, at least a few practice sessions.
“I’ve loved these five games, usually it’s just a two or three-match series going on between a couple of other shows, for me, it was something I had not done for some time, some for some time to focus on T20 cricket for weeks. ” So I really enjoyed it. “
Josh Hazlewood also repeated Cummin’s words and believed that the team was moving in the right direction to find the right combinations.
“It is probably the first time that Australia has been able to put its number one in successive games in the park,” said Hazlewood. “I think the guys started learning how to play well and what roles they need to play in the team and we saw how dominant they are.” They were in these games. So these are exciting times. “
