For birthday boy Pat Cummins, winning the IPL for KKR was a different feeling

A video of Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Pat Cummins, who turned 31 today, recalling the moments after his Indian Premier League (IPL) win with Kolkata Knight Riders has resurfaced on social media. After playing his final season for KKR in 2022, Cummins gave an interview last year about his tenure. In the video, you can hear the Australian skipper talking about the grand celebrations after KKR’s victory in the IPL 2014 final. “I was part of the Kolkata Knight Riders. We won, I think it was about 2013, and a few days after the final we went back to Calcutta, went to the stadium to do a kind of walking marching band. And the stadium was packed,” Cummins said.

Congratulations Pat,” read the message. Cummins went on to talk in the video about how thousands of people had gathered to witness their favorite team. “It was 80,000 – 90,000 people just waving at the team and then the streets were filled with a few hundred thousand people to get a glimpse of the team and it’s just a different world,” he added.
