“As a fan, you always tend to enjoy someone who is playing a completely different game than everybody else. They are fearless, you look at them and feel geez wish I could do that as well, geez he was Brave.

Joshua Lalor asked Cummins to name the cricketer he enjoys watching the most in world cricket right now. The Aussie pacer was quick to name Pant. 

“You just got to say well done when someone plays like that, takes the game on and it comes off. You've probably got 50 other players who probably wouldn't have taken the game on like that. He's always good to watch,” Cummins added.

Pant had a prolific outing in the recently concluded Test series against Australia and England. He was instrumental in breaching the Gabba against Australia.
