MELBOURNE, Australia, May 10 (AP/UNB) - Teenage fast bowler Pat Cummins has returned from a six-month injury layoff to be included in an Australia's squad for a five-match limited-overs series against England and and one game against Ireland.
A heel injury has kept 19-year-old Cummins out of international cricket since his test debut against South Africa in November, when he took 6-79 to bowl Australia to a two-wicket win.
Selector John Inverarity said Thursday that Cricket Australia would "ease" Cummins back and he would be unlikely to play all eight games on the June and July tour.
An Australia A squad will also tour England in July and August for two three-day and two four-day matches as both teams prepare for next year's Ashes series.
