BCCI and IPL Governing Council unanimously decided to halt the tournament
considering the safety of the players in mind. The decision came after a couple of bio-
bubble breaches with cricketers and support staffs testing COVID19 positive.
KKR dealt with Pat Cummins blow for remaining IPL 2021 games
While the fans welcomed the return of the cash-rich league, Kolkata Knight Riders
were dealt with a massive blow. Pat Cummins, who has been a vital cog in their line-up
has confirmed that he will not travel to the UAE for the remaining 31 matches, a report in
the Morning Sydney Herald suggested.
Australia have a couple of limited-overs lined up against West Indies and Bangladesh
leading to the ICC T20 World Cup scheduled to take place later this year in India.
Pat Cummins was brilliant for the Knight Riders before the tournament was
postponed. In the seven games, the Aussie quick picked nine wickets and scored 93 runs
including a half-century. But he couldn’t steer his side’s performance as they toil in the
second-last position of the points table with only two wins from seven outings.
