Pat Cummins has revealed that like any other player, he is more relaxed when he is on the field performing than watching how other players go about their job from the outside. Cummins also said that he is looking forward to the challenge of playing white-ball cricket and wants to improve his game.

Pat Cummins had a terrific series against India Down Under and emerged as an all-rounder for the Aussies after flourishing with the bat and ball. Following the long tour, Cummins was also adjudged the player-of-the-series against Sri Lanka in Tests for picking up 14 wickets in just two matches. The Australian quick had been relentless against the batsman in Tests and has now been drafted into the squad for the limited-overs format ahead of the World Cup.  

 "I think you hear a lot of the players saying this and I'm no different; off the field, you're terribly nervous watching people go about their business, but once you're out in the field, you know you're in control, you've done it heaps of times before. That's why you play. Normally I'm more relaxed when I'm out there in the moment than when I am off the field. Sometimes when the game feels like it's almost lost, that's when you can feel like you can relax and you've got nothing to lose," said Cummins, reported Cricbuzz.

The Australian bowling all-rounder has already made an impact in the first T20I against India in Vizag and would like to continue his form going forward into the decider at Bengaluru and the ODI series. Cummins was awarded the Allan Border medal for the best performing Australian male cricketer in the last season. 

"Honestly, really happy with how my game is going. So many things have fallen into place. Obviously, there is a bit of luck as well. I am playing consistent cricket and I am able to concentrate well on my skills and have got a lot of confidence. I haven't played too much white ball cricket and I am looking forward to the challenge. I have got a lot to learn, like take wickets in white ball cricket and bowl in the death overs. But yes I couldn't have been happier on how I have been performing and I have been able to concentrate on my skills and bowl without having to worry about anything else," he concluded.
