Aussie Cricket Captain Pat Cummins’ Childhood Home Is Up For Sale

After four decades of being owned by the same family, Australian cricket captain Pat Cummins’ childhood home can now be yours.

Considering the calibre of player it produced, this may very well be the ultimate pad for backyard cricket. And let’s just say it was a little more serious than the old wheelie bin wickets at the Cummins household.

Featuring a set of iron wickets embedded into the ground, and Milo green beach wickets along with a trampoline turned on its side that served as the “electric wickie,” by all accounts, this was where the great man honed his top-order skills.

“As a kid I loved playing cricket with my two brothers in the backyard,” Cummins noted in an Instagram post.

“We would mow a pitch, wet the grass for extra skid and have the trampoline as electric wickie.”

In addition to Pat, Peter and the late Maria Cummins raised four other children in this red-brick Mount Riverview residence, which arrives on the market with a price guide of $1.5 million to $1.6 million.

“It’s Pat’s childhood home, the family have lived there for 38 years,” Daniel Jennings of Dukes Estate Agents said in an interview.

“There’s plenty of things that have gone on in that home and, of course, the backyard.”

Incidentally, Jennings was quite familiar with this property well before he was charged with selling it. As a childhood friend of the Cummins family, he also spent his youth playing backyard cricket here.

He added: “We’d go over to their place after cricket and they would wet down the backyard and it was absolutely damaging to each others’ bodies.”

“There was some serious sliding and there was a trampoline at the back to stop the ball. That backyard was made for cricket — it’s hard to find that much space in a backyard.”

Daniel Jennings is currently seeking expressions of interest for the sale of Pat Cummins’ family home. The next inspection appointment is scheduled for this Saturday (October 7th).
