Cummins looking to tweak bowling action

Australia

Australia paceman Pat Cummins says he will make a change to his bowling action as recovers from yet another stress fracture to his back that will see him miss the whole Australia summer.

The 22 year-old Cummins has already had three back related injuries in his short career, and has now identified that a tweak in his approach might help him.

A right-arm fast bowler, Cummins will take inspiration from former Aussie seamer Brett Lee, who enjoyd a long and fruitful career.

Cummins has played one Test, 18 ODIs and 15 T20s for Australia.

Cummins told Wide World: "Someone like Binga (Brett Lee) says even when you're 35 or 36 you're still trying to work out your action and fine-tune it. So I think that's something I'll definitely have to look at.

"Nothing too major. Looking at a couple of replays, (my action) wasn't too bad. There were just a couple of little things that may have been a little bit tighter.

"But when I start bowling in a few months that's something I'll look at."
