Aaron Finch fires back at Aussie cricket legend’s criticism of Pat Cummins and dismisses calls to DROP under-fire fast bowler: ‘It blows my mind’

Aaron Finch has fired back at Mark Waugh’s criticism of Pat Cummins, insisting the fast bowler has been ‘outstanding’ in T20 cricket for Australia and dismissing calls for him to be dropped.

Cummins has come under fire for his performances against New Zealand and Sri Lanka in Australia’s first two games at the T20 World Cup.

The fast bowler went wicketless in both games, leaking 46 runs from his four overs at an economy rate of 11.5 in the 89-run loss against the Kiwis and conceding 36 runs from his four overs in the win against Sri Lanka.

Pat Cummins has endured a difficult T20 World Cup so far, going wicketless against New Zealand and Sri Lanka in Australia’s first two games 

That prompted Waugh to call for Australia’s Test captain to be dropped ahead of the crunch clash against England at the MCG on Friday.

‘Pat Cummins with the ball, there’s a massive question mark over him heading into the next game,’ the former selector told RSN Breakfast on Wednesday.

‘I think they [Australia] need to make some changes for the next game. I would bring Cameron Green in and I’d bring him in for Pat Cummins and I’d let Cam Green open the batting.

‘That’s one change I would definitely make. I know it leaves your bowling a little short, but I think Cameron Green can bowl four overs as well as any of the other bowlers at the moment.’

Finch, however, dismissed criticism of his star bowler and insisted Australia’s premier fast bowler remained an invaluable asset.

‘His [Cummins] numbers over the last 18 months have been outstanding in T20 cricket,’ Finch said on Friday.

‘It blows my mind sometimes where people go with selection chat.

‘He’s been unbelievable over all three formats for a long time and the calmness and experience that he brings to a bowling group is invaluable.’

Cummins is currently 49th in the ICC’s men’s T20 international bowling rankings, behind teammates Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa, Ashton Agar and Mitchell Starc.

The 29-year-old has taken 53 wickets in 48 T20 internationals for Australia at an average of 24.5 with a 7.42 economy rate.
