Sydney, Nov. 4 (ANI): Teenage pace sensation Pat Cummins has vowed that the latest injury which has sidelined him from another Test summer, would not dampen his desire to bowl fast and furious when he is cleared to resume the pitch again.
Cummins, 19, said he would not be scared to extend himself despite suffering a litany of injuries, which included stress fractures and an ankle problem, that had conspired to put his career on hold since he took seven South African wickets during his only Test last November.

"It's your job as a fast bowler to run in and bowl 100 per cent, and that's what I like to do. The good thing is I have time on my side. I never second-guess myself ... [if I'm] fully fit I want to tear in," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Cummins, as saying.
However, he could not hide his despair when scans revealed that he had suffered a stress fracture in his lower back as he helped steer the Sydney Sixers to victory in the lucrative Champions League T20 tournament in South Africa, the paper said.
"It wasn't great news, unfortunately. It was not what I was hoping for or expecting," Cummins said.
