Pat Cummins drives cricket fans wild with his ‘Thor impersonation’ as he smashes the wicket with a hammer in Pakistan

  • Aussie Test skipper smashed wicket with hammer to even surface on crease line
  • Is within laws of the game to do so if a bowler feels the surface is dangerous
  • Vision went viral on social media, with plenty of comparisons to superhero Thor

Australian cricket captain Pat Cummins has produced his best ‘Thor impersonation’ as his team chases a result in the second Test against Pakistan.

Late on day four of play at Karachi, Cummins, 28, took matters into his own hands – armed with a hammer.

In remarkable scenes at the National Stadium, the fast bowler looked every inch the Marvel superhero as he attempted to even out the surface on the crease line.

It is within the laws of the game to do so if a bowler feels the surface is dangerous in terms of where their front foot lands. 

Cummins went to work when all-rounder Cameron Green was thrown the ball in the 53rd over.

The moment went viral on social media, with Pakistan’s official Twitter account posting: ‘So @patcummins30 is Thor?’

Commentator Simon Katich chipped in with, ‘There’s not much he can’t do, Pat Cummins. Handy on the Thor-like hammer as well.’ 

Cricket writer Bharat Sundaresan labelled the Aussie leader the ‘definition of a bowler’s captain. Pat Cummins taking the hammer and bashing the foot-holes into place for Cam Green’s sake.’

The hosts have staged an impressive comeback in the second Test after looking down and out when they were skittled for just 148 in their first innings.

With skipper Babar Azam unbeaten on 102, Pakistan are 2/192 and need 314 more runs to win.

To secure a fighting draw, they will be required to bat for the entire fifth and final day of play. 

Cummins surprised many cricket fans around the world by not enforcing the follow-on son after bowling out the home side cheaply in their first stint at the crease.

Australia reached 2/97 in its second innings before declaring in the morning session of day four with a lead of 506 runs.

Play continues from 4pm (AEDT) on Wednesday.
