Australian skipper Pat Cummins shared a hilarious video on March 11 on his social media handles as teammate Alex Carey accidentally falls into the swimming pool.
Cummins plotted a scene where he was making a video of wicketkeeper-batter Alex Carey while he was walking through the pool and stood at the edge of the pool. He didn’t seem to notice that he was about to fall into the pool. He threw his cell phone to his teammates after falling while everyone around him were just laughing.
Reacting to the video, former Aussie speedster Brett Lee pulled Alex Carey’s leg and wrote that his phone will be ringing wet. Meanwhile, Glenn Maxwell also commented on the post and said that the phone can last 29 min in the water because Alex Carey is sweet.
“It’s clear they’ve made an effort to nullify our pace attack”- Pat Cummins
The Rawalpindi pitch, where the teams played their 1st match which was ended in a dull draw, was criticized for being too batter-friendly. Only 14 wickets fell over the five days. ICC did a check and gave its ratings “below average”. But skipper Pat Cummins was not disappointed at his bowler’s performance. He said the pitch was designed to nullify the pace attack.
“Turning up to a pitch that’s probably not a traditional pitch you would get here in Rawalpindi, and it’s probably clear they’ve made an effort to try and nullify the pace bowling,” Cummins said to the press after the 1st test. “I think that’s a positive. And, sub-continent conditions, coming away with a draw it’s not a bad result,” he added.
“I understand the fans’ frustration and it would have been great if there was a result in this Test match. But do remember that this is a three-Test series and there is a lot of cricket left to be played. We cannot make a fast or bouncy pitch for the heck of it and put the conditions in Australia’s lap. It is important that when we play at home, we play according to our strengths,” Pakistan Cricket Board chairman, Ramiz Raja, said on Wednesday.
