IPL 2024: Pat Cummins Sold For 20.50Cr To SRH, Becomes the Most Expensive Player In IPL History

Pat Cummins Sold For 20.5Cr To SRH: Australian World Cup-winning captain Pat Cummins has created history as he becomes the most expensive player in the history of IPL. Sold for Sunrisers Hyderabad, Cummins attracted a bid of 20.50 Crore.

After a healthy neck-to-neck bid war between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad, the latter did not back away and as a result, we will see Cummins in the Orange brigade.

Pat Cummins was released from Kolkata Knight Riders. He was skipper of the side but out-of-form middle order cost them eight losses in 14 matches. Not only with the ball, he was actively contributing with the bat as well for KKR.

Pat Cummins has become the most expensive purchase in IPL history with this remarkable number, indicating the great desire for his abilities and leadership. Cummins was formerly a member of the Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians, and Kolkata Knight Riders, among other IPL teams.

Pat Cummins will undoubtedly remember this year for being the most expensive player ever after winning the ODI Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. His transfer to Sunrisers Hyderabad opens a new chapter in his IPL career, and his high auction price highlights his importance in the Twenty20 league.

Cummins’ 14-ball half-century for KKR against Mumbai Indians in 2022 holds the record for the second-fastest fifty in IPL history. Cummins has 359 runs and 45 wickets with an economy rate of 8.54 in 42 IPL games.

The 2024 IPL, according to Cummins, would be the perfect lead-up to the T20 World Cup, which is scheduled to begin a few days after the IPL final. “I feel like I haven’t played a heap of T20 cricket and in some ways, I feel like I haven’t played my best T20 cricket for a little while,” he added.
