Australia pacer Pat Cummins has been ruled out of IPL 2022 due to a hip injury. The Kolkata franchise bid farewell to Cummins for the season by sharing a video on social media. In the video, the Aussie pacer can be seen thanking the cricketers for their support during the current season of IPL.
“I just want to say a huge thanks to everyone. It’s great to be based out of a similar side to last year. It feels like you are coming back home. Thanks for looking after the family and to everyone, players, staff, the hotel staff. It’s been a great 5-6 weeks. All the best for the last few games. I’ll be cheering on. Hopefully, we make it to the finals too,” the 29-year-old pacer said.
