(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.
It's not like they sit on their arses and don't touch a cricket ball on tour bro.
People are weird, all our seamers break down and people are all like 'Manage them properly ffs!' then when management decide to take a cautious approach and not run them into the ground it's all like 'they need to bowl more!!!'.
