Australian Test skipper Pat Cummins has revealed that he has signed up for the 2022 IPL mega auction. The right-arm pacer also confirmed that as things stand, he is willing to play the IPL.
Cummins also added that a player should individually be aware of his workload, and said that some cricketers can manage their workload better than others.
“I’ve signed up for the auction at this stage. I’ll probably have a bit more of a think about it before that auction date. At this stage, I plan to do the IPL. I have no advice for anyone else. I think you’ve got to be aware of (workloads), it could be a lot of time on the road, some people manage that better than others,” said Cummins as quoted by Cricket Australia.
You should know what you are signing up for: Pat Cummins
Pat Cummins also added that a player should know what he is signing up for. Adding that he will have to endure the bubble life for some more time, the 28-year-old concluded by stating that people are aware of what they will have to go through.
“You have to know what you’re signing up for. It could be a long-ish winter but the last couple of winters have been quiet at home. The traditional tours are still a little way away, it will be bubbles for a little bit longer. Everyone has to be aware of it,” concluded Pat Cummins.
Pat Cummins was last seen on a cricket field in the 5th Ashes Test match against England. Cummins scalped a total of 7 wickets in the match and played a key role in helping the kangaroos thrash their arch-rivals by a margin of 146 runs.
Cummins’ stint as the full-time Test skipper of the Australian side started in splendid fashion after Australia routed England by a margin of 4-0 in The Ashes series. Talking about the IPL, the right-arm seamer has played 37 matches in the tournament and has taken 38 wickets at an average of 30.13.
