The Australian added, “I’m very pleased to do it in my first game of the season. I’m just trying to hit the shorter boundary. The hard thing after a big auction is that there are so many. a lot has changed from last year. It’s a good mix of talent out there and pretty comfortable with the boys.”
It’s unbelievable from Cummins that KKR, needing 35 from 30 balls, got it all in just six deliveries with the Australian Test captain hitting six sixs and four boundaries in his 15 56 balls , leaving behind his captain Shreyas Iyer as well as rival captain Rohit Sharma lost his breath.

“In the meantime, the plan was for Venky to drop anchor and tell Pat to just rotate at everything because that’s what he used to do before. When I got on the ball, I told him to time the ball because of him. a bit over-polished.
“We have to take responsibility as top hitters. We are all capable of hitting the long ball. In powerplay both halves, the pitch was pretty much the same. After the powerplay, I guess it’s a lot easier,” Iyer added.

After the 83-run fourth title match between Suryakumar Yadav (52) and Tilak Varma (38 not coming out), Pollard (22 not coming out) hit Cummins in three sixth rounds to end MI’s turn on a high, which ultimately proved to be too little for KKR.

Rohit says that Cummins’ onslaught will be difficult to digest.
“Never expected him to come and play like that! A lot of credit to him for the way he played. With the bat we didn’t start well. In the last four rounds, to get 160 plus is a huge effort…
“We played until the 15th ending, but the way Cummins played… We thought we could get them. But this is going to be hard to digest – like it’s been in a couple of episodes. There’s a lot of Rohit said.
