Pat Cummins missed the initial few games of the IPL due to international commitments, but he made an instant impact in his first IPL 2022 game. Cummins scored his half-century in just 14 balls against Kolkata Knight Riders, which is the joint-fastest in the history of the Indian Premier League.
Cummins got a niggle in between, and he missed four games on the trot. However, Cummins had a forgettable tournament with the ball. Cummins scalped 7 wickets in 5 games at a terrible economy of 10.68 this season. In the last game against Mumbai Indians, he scalped three wickets.
The Australian test captain was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2022 auction for a price of INR 7.25 crores. He failed to deliver to his potential this season.
