Pat Cummins' England cricket tour over

12:09 pm on 2 July 2012

The injury-prone teenage cricketer Pat Cummins has flown home from Australia's one-day tour of the United Kingdom has come to a premature end because of a side strain injury.

The tour was viewed as an excellent chance for Cummins to gain experience before Australia return for next year's Ashes series.

However his opportunities have been cut short because of the injury picked up during the touring side's 15-run loss to England in the series opener at Lord's.
