Pat Cummins is the kind of bowler who can win Australia the World Cup, according to former Aussie pace spearhead Brett Lee.

Playing in his first full World Cup after playing just two matches in 2015, Cummins started in fine style against Afghanistan.

He took a wicket off his third ball bowled in Australia's seven-wicket win, and finished with figures of 3-40.

The 26-year-old has arguably been the best bowler in one-day cricket this year, having taken 20 wickets in just seven games.

Swing bowling won't have big impact at World Cup: Cummins Pat Cummins is relishing taking the new ball in English conditions but, outside of the opening four or five overs of an innings, does not expect the Kookaburra ball to swing. That means he and spearhead Mitchell Starc will need to rely on pace and bounce - two of their key assets - and savvy to be the fast-bowling tormentors they hope to be. Judicious use of the bouncer will also be a key, Cummins noted. "I just looked at some data before that out of all the ODI countries, it [England] has got the least swing out of all of them over the past 20 years or something.

His average of 14.15 is the lowest of any bowler to have claimed more than 10 scalps, while his strike-rate has him ranked second.

Cummins' and Australia's first notable challenge of the World Cup awaits on Thursday at Trent Bridge, where he and Mitchell Starc will be charged with stopping dangerous West Indies opener Chris Gayle.

But if Cummins goes on to fulfil Lee's prophecy this year, he will be following in that same man's footsteps from 16 years ago.

Always one of the game's most dangerous bowlers, it was in the 2003 World Cup in Africa where Lee was most devastating.

He took 22 wickets in 10 matches, starring in arguably his best month of cricket as Australia won their second straight title.

"I just hope Pat really enjoys this moment," Lee said.

"As I did in 2003. We just had a really good side and everyone believed in each other."
