Cummins is only 18, he has plenty of time to play shielf cricket. A non issue for mine.
I just think it's silly to have him on the sidelines for a month, missing cricket, when he shouldn't even been there. Overall this recent trend of picking 5 seamers is a bit weird and annoying to me. it wasn't so bad in SL 'cause Pattinson wasn't missing much. (uh bar his entire pre-season) but now Cummins will actually be missing cricket. What are they, paranoid about Dougeh and Lee dropping dead or something?! Likewise I'm paranoid as **** Pattinson will be picked in the test squad, as the extra, extra seamer, and miss even more time.
