Pat Cummins Equals All-Time IPL RecordPat Cummins‚ the world's No. 1 Test bowler‚ was the macho pride of the Kings XI Punjab. In his four-over spell against the Mumbai Indians‚ he conceded 49 runs‚ equaling the all-time IPL record for the fastest fifty. That was enough to get Kolkata Knight Riders to 162 with four overs remaining.
Pat Cummins is an Australian cricketerThe batting hero from Queensland is on the verge of equaling the all-time IPL record for the fastest fifty. Cummins scored a brilliant unbeaten fifty off 14 balls to claim the title of joint-fastest to fifty. The fast bowler has confirmed his Midas touch has not been lost. Cummins also scored a century against the Mumbai Indians in his IPL debut. The Australian captain was batting in the IPL against the Mumbai Indians. His blitzkrieg was so devastating‚ he managed to equal the fastest fifty from a single over by a batsman in IPL history. While the Australian cricketer was primarily known for his devastation with the ball‚ he also turned into a demon hitter on Wednesday. With a whirlwind innings‚ Cummins equaled KL Rahul's record from Punjab against Delhi four years ago. In the first innings‚ Mumbai Indians were 161/4 from 20 overs‚ but Cummins changed the look of the chase with his blitzkrieg‚ hitting fours to Jasprit Bumrah and sixes to Tymal Mills. Cummins then thrashed Daniel Sams for four sixes in the 16th over to give the Knight Riders a fighting chance. While the Knight Riders chased the total‚ Cummins scored 56 in fifteen balls‚ scoring six fours and four sixes.
He is the world's No 1-ranked Test bowlerPat Cummins equalled KL Rahul's record for fastest fifty in IPL as he led Kolkata Knight Riders to victory over Mumbai Indians. Cummins‚ who was last seen playing for Australia in a tour of Pakistan‚ came in at 101-5 with Kolkata chasing 162 runs. Cummins immediately went after the bowling and scored the required fifty in just 14 balls‚ hitting four boundaries and half-dozen sixes. His unbeaten innings helped Kolkata to win the match in 16 overs‚ and it left Mumbai winless after three games. With this‚ Kolkata are now at the top of the table in the IPL. Earlier‚ Cummins had surpassed the previous record of a top-ranked Test bowler‚ James Anderson‚ who returned a match-winning eight-wicket haul in the New Year's Test against the home side. He eventually regained the top spot‚ but it took him until the sensational series between New Zealand and South Africa in 1896-97 to claim the title. During that period‚ he remained on top for six matches and three years. With this knock‚ Cummins has now become the youngest No. 1 in ICC Test rankings. The ICC's test rankings first list was compiled in 1882‚ and the young Joey Palmer was 23 years old when he achieved the status. He also became the youngest test bowler to reach the top spot. His hat-trick in his ODI debut could be his next step in the international cricket scene.
He is a Kings XI Punjab playerIndian Premier League is an annual cricket tournament run by the Board of Control for Cricket in India. In its thirteenth season‚ Cummins has equaled Dhoni's all time record of seven centuries. The match was delayed after a storm dumped several inches of snow and pushed temperatures below zero. Cummins‚ meanwhile‚ took two wickets for KKR. Pat Cummins' unbeaten half-century came off just 14 balls‚ an IPL record which was set by KL Rahul against the Delhi Daredevils in 2018. This was Cummins' first IPL appearance since returning from a three-match Test series in Pakistan. Cummins took two wickets and conceded 49 runs off four overs‚ but Mumbai Indians recovered to post 161 in their final innings. Tilak Varma contributed 38 off just 27 balls‚ giving the visitors a 164-run lead in the final. Pat Cummins had an unbelievable IPL debut in the first game of the season. His debut in the tournament came when he was playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders against the Mumbai Indians. In the match‚ Cummins scored a 14-ball fifty‚ a personal best in the history of the tournament. Earlier‚ Cummins had played for the national team and had attended Shane Warne's funeral. He was able to play only one match before the deadline of April 5. But Cummins did it with his bat.
He has a macho prideThe Aussie fast bowler Pat Cummins is making the headlines with his sensational IPL 50 from 14 balls. In fact‚ his fast bowling is unorthodox. The macho pride that he carries has earned him many admirers. He has seven siblings. One of them‚ Tim Southee‚ is a top Australian Test player and has only played one IPL match. Cummins' macho pride is so pronounced that it could be misconstrued as macho pride. Pat Cummins is making his debut in the current edition of the IPL. The pacer had missed the previous three games due to international commitments. He returned from Pakistan after a three-match Test series. In the match against the Mumbai Indians‚ Cummins took two wickets and gave away 49 runs in four overs. Mumbai Indians recovered from a dismal 55/3 in their 11th over and posted a total of 161 for 4. Tilak Varma hit an unbeaten 38 from 27 balls.
He confounds the Australian fast bowling stereotypePat Cummins has defied the fast bowling stereotype by pursuing an education and doing community work outside of the field. The fast bowler completed a Certificate of Executive Management from the University of New South Wales‚ and even led donations for the UNICEF fund during the IPL. While playing cricket‚ he has been promoting climate change and is a well-read man who enjoys cryptic crosswords. The Australian fast bowler has been lauded for his thoughtful leadership. In contrast‚ the fast bowling stereotype has long been that fast bowlers are brawny‚ unintellectual types who are unlikely to bat. The perception is partly due to stacking‚ an example of sport stereotyping in which the socially-privileged take the lead‚ while the less-privileged simply follow instructions involving brute force. In Australia‚ this stereotype was reinforced when Cummins was named captain after Tim Paine‚ the team's vice-captain. Cummins surpassed the previous record of fast bowlers in Test cricket with 21 wickets in four matches. Despite missing the second test against South Africa‚ he still managed to take the top wickets in the series‚ taking 21 in four matches. He was a starring player for Australia‚ defeating England 4-0 under Cummins' guidance. So‚ why has Cummins confounded the Australian fast bowling stereotype?
He clobbers MI bowlers to all parts of the groundIn what can only be described as an all-time epic‚ Pat Cummins clobbered the bowling of Mumbai Indians in the first IPL match ever. Cummins clobbered Ajinkya Rahane‚ Jasprit Bumrah and Daniel Sams to all parts of the ground with his booming bowling. Despite having an imposing batting line-up‚ KKR were unable to score more than two runs off Cummins's first two overs. Earlier‚ Andre Russell played a brilliant five-ball 11-run knock to put KKR on the top and left Andre Iyer stranded. Later on‚ Pat Cummins top-edged a Tymal Mills short delivery to Dewald Brevis. Cummins then clobbered the bowlers of MI to all parts of the ground to seal the win for the home side. Pat Cummins' innings changed the game. He scored a joint-fastest fifty in the IPL‚ in 15 balls. His unbeaten half-century helped KKR chase down 162 and send MI's second innings to deep mid-wicket. After Cummins' innings‚ KKR were 127/5 and needed to score 61 runs in 41 balls. Cummins struck a six over long-on with his second ball.
He hits the ball to all parts of the groundPat Cummins‚ world number one in Test cricket‚ has equalled KL Rahul's record of 50 in 14 balls in the IPL. The Australian bowler struck four sixes and two boundaries in his innings to help the Kolkata Knight Riders chase down 162 runs in the last eight overs. The New Zealand pacer was replaced by Cummins in the mega auctions after Southee impressed in two matches against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings respectively. Pat Cummins arrived in the 14th over of the chase‚ after the dugout had sent Andre Russell back to the dugout. He promptly followed up his dismissal of Russell by hitting Jasprit Bumrah for sixes and Tymal Mills for fours. Cummins finished his innings with a six off the last ball to help KKR win the game in the 16th over. Pat Cummins equaled KL Rahul's IPL record for fastest fifty with 14 balls. The Australian made a remarkable comeback from his hectic Pakistan tour to play the IPL. In his first match for the Kolkata Knight Riders‚ Cummins took the crease at 101-5 and hit six sixes in a fifteen-ball stay.
Player of the Match is none other than @patcummins30 for his stupendous knock of 56* off just 15 deliveries as @KKRiders win by 5 wickets.
