Kolkata Knight Riders fast bowler Pat Cummins is an integral part of the franchise for the last five years. He has done well with them and when the mega auction happened this year happened no one was sure of who will go where. The Australian speedster was not retained by the KKR franchise but they went after him in the mega-auction and eventually bought him back for INR 7.25 crore.
Pat Cummins during an interaction revealed how delighted he was to be back with the franchise when KKR bought him back. “I was pumped when I got picked by KKR again. It’s my fifth season now. I felt I had unfinished business because I left halfway through last season and missed the second half. It’s hard in the IPL because you feel like you are building towards something and then there’s a major auction. So really glad to be back with the same team. Lots of the same players, same staff members so I was very happy,” Pat Cummins was quoted as saying by KKR’s website.
KKR have crucial games ahead in the final league stage of the tournament and it will be interesting to see how they fare. They as of now have 10 points from 12 games and need to win both their matches to stay relevant in the tournament.
