Pujara had brought up his century and was looking to motor on but was run out thanks to an athletic effort from Cummins, made all the more spectacular by the fact that the pacer had bowled 19 overs by that point. This is simply stunning from patcummins30 , especially after sending down 19 rapid overs on a blazing hot Adelaide day!
For the uninitiated, a third baseman is the baseball player whose job it is to defend the area nearest to third base — the third of four bases a baserunner needs to touch in succession in order to score a run.
The third baseman usually requires good reflexes in reacting to batted balls as he is often the closest infielder to the batter.
This position also requires a strong and accurate arm as the third baseman often makes long throws to first base. Cummins is currently in negotiations with Cricket Australia for a long-term deal after former high performance manager Pat Howard offered Cummins a one-year deal before he was dismissed.
Adam Gilchrist, who is commentating for Fox Cricket, was effusive in his praise for the effort.
What an inspirational run-out by Pat Cummins.
