Pat Cummins and his unusual middle finger

Middle finger is often considered to be a crucial asset for the fast bowler but Pat Cummins doesn't have a centimeter of his finger. Cummins years back had revealed the story of why his middle finger is short in an interview to

"I lost the top of my finger when I was about three or four (years old). It got slammed in a door and I lost about a centimetre off the top of my finger. It doesn't really affect me because (the finger) is about the same length as the other one (index finger)," Pat Cummins told years earlier.
