Pat Cummins suffers another stress fracture
|An injury-plagued career|
Fast bowler Pat Cummins has again succumbed to a genuine back damage and will be supplanted by all-rounder James Faulkner on Australia's Test voyage through Bangladesh one month from now.
The damage is a noteworthy misfortune for Cummins, whose profession has been tormented by back and foot issues since he made his Test presentation in South Africa in 2011 at 18 years old. Cummins was Man of the Match in that amusement yet at 22 he is yet to add to that one Test top - actually he has played just eight top of the line matches in his profession - and now confronts another long stretch on the sidelines.
"Pat Cummins experienced lower back agony amid the last ODI match in the UK and this torment proceeded upon his arrival to Australia," Cricket Australia physiotherapist David Beakley said. "He thusly experienced a MRI examine yesterday which lamentably has uncovered another early stage lumbar bone anxiety crack. Hence Pat will be not able to partake in the Bangladesh Test arrangement and will now go into a protracted restoration program."
Australia will at present trust Cummins has a major worldwide vocation in front of him, however with each new harm the attentiveness toward his future have developed.

A further back anxiety crack in November 2012 and a repeat in August 2013 on Australia A's voyage through South Africa implied he missed a third sequential home season. In spite of the fact that Cummins had the capacity have summer and was impact of Australia's World Cup-winning squad early this year, he has basically just been utilized as a part of the shorter configurations.
Cummins has not played a Sheffield Shield match subsequent to the last in March 2011 and if the most recent harm discounts him of the late spring the crevice between his Shield appearances may extend towards six years. National choice board administrator Rod Marsh said Cummins had been noteworthy in the late ODIs in England.
"This is truly sad for Pat and I know how disillusioned he will be," Marsh said. "He is a youthful bowler with a brilliant future for Australia and we were truly satisfied with how he knocked down some pins in the UK. We have picked to supplant him with James Faulkner. James returns into the Australia Test side having just played the one Test, yet he is an energizing youthful bowler who could be exceptionally convenient in the conditions we are liable to see in Bangladesh."
Like Cummins, Faulkner has played one and only Test, having appeared in the dead flexible at The Oval in 2013. Faulkner will joint Peter Siddle, Mitchell Starc and the uncapped Andrew Fekete as Australia's bleeding edge pace choices for the two-Test voyage through Bangladesh.
Australia were at that point without the harmed David Warner for the voyage through Bangladesh, while Mitchell Johnson and Josh Hazlewood have been refreshed. Additionally absent from the squad that set out on the Ashes visit this year are Michael Clarke, Ryan Harris, Shane Watson, Chris Rogers and Brad Haddin, every one of whom have declared their Test retirements.
