Aussie fast-bowler Pat Cummins joins Seven Commentary Team for Trans-Tasman T20 Battle

Pat Cummins

Australian fast-bowling sensation Pat Cummins will take up an expert commentary role as the Aussie women take on the White Ferns on Saturday September 29.

Cummins said he was looking forward to getting behind the microphone at North Sydney Oval:

“The Australian Women’s T20 side has been hugely successful in recent years and I can’t wait to see the skipper, Meg Lanning, back into the side this summer. It will be a tough series with New Zealand posting some massive scores recently over in the UK. As a player, hopefully I can offer some different insights to fans watching on Seven.”

The trans-Tasman clash on AFL Grand Final night is the much-anticipated opener of a three-match T20 International LIVE on Channel 7 and 7mate.

Captain Meg Lanning leads the Australians LIVE from North Sydney Oval as they seek to turn the tables on fierce rivals New Zealand, having never won a T20 series against the Kiwis in three attempts since 2012.

Mel McLaughlin, Andy Maher and Abbey Gelmi will host Seven’s coverage, with expert commentary from former Australian stars Lisa Sthalekar and Julia Price, and current fast-bowling star Pat Cummins.

Australian squad:  Nicola Carey, Ashleigh Gardner, Rachael Haynes (vc), Alyssa Healy, Delissa Kimmince, Meg Lanning (c), Sophie Molineux, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Elyse Villani, Tayla Vlaeminck, Georgia Wareham
