Anderson CUMMINS - West Indies - Test Career 1993-94


Andy Cummins, the high-stepping fast-medium bowler from Barbados, was usually at the end of the queue when it came to picking West Indies quick bowlers and played far more ODIs than Tests. He first came to prominence as part of the World Cup squad of 1992, taking 4-33 against India in Wellington and 3-38 at Melbourne in the match against the West Indies. He also played in the West Indies first home ODIs against South Africa, taking 3-40 in one of the two matches in Trinidad. Cummins finally got a Test chance in the fifth Test of the Australian series of 1992-93 in Perth, but had little opportunity to do much bowling as a whirlwind called Curtly Ambrose blew Australia to an innings defeat.


Cummins had one wicket in the second innings. He played Tests against Pakistan in Trinidad and Barbados soon after, taking 4-54 on his home turf. He played another two Tests in India in 1994-95, taking one wicket in Nagpur, where his bowling figures were 1-96 and 0-57, but having much more success at Mohali in the third Test, where he scored 50, adding 99 in partnership with Jimmy Adams and taking 2-45. He played in five ODIs against England during their Caribbean tour of 1993-94. He had one season as the overseas player for Durham in the English County Championship. (Bob Harragan)
