Australia paceman Pat Cummins says England can expect a bouncer barrage during this winter's Ashes series. Following Mitchell Starc's footsteps, Australia quick Pat Cummins has also made some big statements in a recent interview, warning England of the bouncers Australia are planning to bowl at them. He also hinted as drawing inspiration from Mitchell Johnson's 2013-14 exploits.
"Hope you practise your bouncers, because we'll be bowling a lot of them", Cummins was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
The fast bowler added that as England play on slower wickets, the wickets in Australia will be to Australia's advantage and they will be looking to use the bounce to their advantage.
"To watch "Johno" do what he did, (he) kept the whole morale of the side and Australia up against the Poms nearly single-handedly", Cummins said of the left armer, who took 37 wickets at 13.97 as Australia swept the series 5-0.
"To watch Johno do what he did, he kept the whole morale of the side and Australia up against the Poms nearly single-handedly, It shows the importance a really quick bowler can have and hopefully one of us three or four guys can do a similar job", he said, as per The Metro.

Oxford isn't the only European city to step up its " clean air " policy game, however. Oxford is poised to introduce the world's first zero-emissions zone.
Cummins added that Johnson showed in the last Ashes Down Under, the importance of having a really fast bowler.
'To watch Johno do what he did, he kept the whole morale of the side and Australia up against the Poms nearly single-handedly, ' Cummins added.
When asked if he would like to play the role Johnson played in 2013-14 Ashes, Cummins said, "I'd love to play that role".
"I think we're lucky that there's a few of us who are all pretty tall and get a bit of bounce and like to bowl with a bit of pace".
'Hopefully the wickets have a bit of pace and bounce in them, there's nothing like getting your adrenalin up and then running in trying to bowl short'. The 24-year-old has yet to play Test cricket on home turf but clearly fancies his chances of unsettling the tourists' batsmen when the series begins in Brisbane on November 23. "I'm not quite quick-witted enough to come up with too many sledges but hopefully we can show our aggression in other ways", he said.
