If there was one thing the Australians hated, it would be a defeat. Both Pat Cummins and David Warner were at the end when their side – Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad – lost the opening matches of the IPL 2020. Both will shampoo to bits to reverse the trend and justify their presence on the side. And more Warner, who leads SRH and the way his team went down for Royal Challengers Bangalore, would be absolutely disgusted. Cummins, who spent Rs.15.50 crore to KKR in the IPL auction last year, went for 16.33 runs per over in the match against Mumbai Indians and it would not go well with him.
Therefore, when the teams meet in Abu Dhabi, they will face this Australian team.
Warner is one of cricket’s big guns, in any format. In the IPL, the SRH captain has led his side to a title and, over the years, played 127 games and scored 4,712 runs at a strike-rate of 142.31, with four centuries and 44 fifties to his name.
Cummins has played 17 matches and taken 17 wickets with an economy of 8.67.
Granted, Cummins’s stats are not half as impressive as those of Warner, but what matters is who comes to the party that day.
This is the content of a big boxing match, so there will be quite a clock, especially if both players get their A game for the match.
