Golden boy Pat Cummins ascended to the most revered throne as Australian cricket faced extraordinary image and culture issues.

Captain Pat is the first book to focus on the Australian cricketer and Captain of the Australian Test team.

Covering his early life to his arrival as a Test cricketer at a remarkably early age, the book also looks at his frustrations with injury and his appointment as the 47th Australian Test Captain. He is a player who took Australia and the cricket world by storm the moment he first donned the famous baggy green cap.

Award-winning sports writer Ron Reed pays tribute to Pat Cummins and examines his scorecard: how he has played and lead, how the fans rate him, and what his future holds.
