Pat Cummins’ IPL 2022 came to an abrupt end after a hip injury ruled him out for the remainder of the tournament. While he played only five matches this seas, the Australian Test captain did make match-winning contributions against the Mumbai Indians in both fixtures with the bat as well as the ball.

With Cummins’ tournament over, his IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders posted a video in which he shared his thoughts about his season, and the franchise also wished him a speedy recovery. The tall pacer was in the team as a bowling all-rounder, inconsistent performances meant that he ended up warming the bench on most occasions.

Have a speedy recovery, say KKR to Cummins

On May 13, Kolkata Knight Riders shared a video montage of all the events featuring the Australian where he is seen bonding with skipper Shreyas Iyer wearing the traditional Indian kurta, and at the same time celebrating his 29th birthday with his teammates and the other members of the KKR support staff including head coach Brendon McCullum and CEO Venky Mysore.

Reminiscing his stay with the team during this period, Pat Cummins thanked his teammates and the entire contingent for looking after him and stated that he enjoyed the time.

“I just want to say a huge thanks to everyone. It’s great to be based out of the side similar to last year. It feels like you are coming back home. Thanks for looking after the family and to everyone, players. staff, hotel staff. It’s been a great 5-6 weeks,” said Pat Cummins while speaking in a video posted by KKR on their official Twitter handle. “All the best for the last few games. I’ll be cheering on. Hopefully, we make it to the finals too”, he added.

The video ended with the two-time World Cup winner waving goodbye and a special message from Kolkata that read, “Thank You, Pat”.

The Australian pace sensation who was bought back by the two-time winners at this year’s two-day mega auction in Bengaluru could only manage 63 runs from five matches including a half-century with his highest score being an unbeaten 15-ball 56 against the Mumbai Indians. With the ball in hand, Cummins registered seven scalps to his name with his best figures coming in the second encounter with Mumbai Indians where he finished with match-winning figures of 3/22. All three wickets were taken in one over.
