Patience does trick for Cummins


Share post:

GROS ISLET – Fast bowler Miguel Cummins is relieved to finally claim his maiden Test wicket, especially after enduring a “tough” debut Test in Jamaica last week.

The 25-year-old Barbadian seemed to be heading for another wicketless outing on the second day of the third Test on Wednesday when he produced a hostile burst in the second session as India declined from 339 for five to 353 all out – losing their last five wickets for just 14 runs.

Cummins finished with three for 54, while debutant 19-year-old speedster Alzarri Joseph picked up three for 69 at the Darren Sammy National Stadium.

“The first Test for me – my debut game – was very tough because it was my first time playing, so the nerves took in,” he told a media conference. (CMC)
