Cummins couldn't stop smiling at the world's youngest retirement!


Pat Cummins couldn't contain his laughter when asked about the possibility of fast bowler Neil Wagner coming back from retirement in the second Test against New Zealand.

In the first Test played in Wellington, Australia defeated the Kiwis by 172 runs to take an unbeaten lead in the two-Test series. After the match, New Zealand captain Tim Southee hinted at Wagner's inclusion in the team.

Kiwi pacer Neil Wagner recently retired after not being selected for the series against Australia and he also expressed his stand on the matter.

“It will be the shortest retirement in the world,” the Australian captain smiled during the post-match interview, saying, “If he is the next best New Zealand bowler who you think can perform, then you bring him into the team.”

He said that I have faced them before, they are quite enthusiastic. It will be fun to face them in a test match here every morning and see what happens.

It should be noted that Wagner retired in tears in a press conference before the series, which was quite a surprise for the cricket world.

Wagner has taken 260 Test wickets for New Zealand at an average of 27.57. Among them, he has taken 24 wickets in four Tests against Australia at an average of 23.04.
