Pat Cummins, the Australian cricket sensation, has achieved unprecedented success as a captain across all formats of the game. From leading Australia to victory in the World Test Championship (WTC) and the ICC Cricket World Cup to taking a hat-trick in the T20I World Cup, Cummins has showcased his exceptional leadership and cricketing prowess.

Cummins’ journey to the top has been marked by resilience and determination. After making his Test debut as an 18-year-old in 2011, he faced several setbacks due to injuries. However, he never gave up and worked his way back into the team. In 2021, he was named the captain of the Australian Test team, and later that year, he also took over the ODI captaincy.

Under Cummins’ leadership, Australia won the WTC in 2023, defeating India in the final. This was a historic achievement for the team, as it was their first WTC title. Cummins played a crucial role in the final, taking seven wickets in the match.

In the same year, Cummins led Australia to victory in the ICC Cricket World Cup. The team defeated India in the final, with Cummins taking two wickets and scoring a crucial 34 runs. This was Australia’s sixth World Cup title, and Cummins became only the second Australian captain after Ricky Ponting to lift the trophy.

Cummins’ success continued in the T20I format as well. In the 2024 T20 World Cup, he took a hat-trick against Bangladesh, becoming only the second Australian to achieve this feat in a T20 World Cup. This performance helped Australia win the match and maintain their 100% record in the tournament.
