The Speedster played for Kolkata Knight Riders in Indian Premier League 2020 in UAE, believes that Playing in Bio Secure Bubble has benefitted him ahead of Australia vs India series. The Australian said, in usual IPL every second day is traveling which is exhausting sometimes but the Bio Bubble has kept him fresh.
Pat Cummins on Bio Bubble and Australian Pitches:
“One of the benefits of being in a bubble in the UAE was we didn’t spend much time traveling,” Cummins to cricket.com.au.
“A normal IPL we’re on a flight every second day, different city, so I think sometimes that can be as draining as the playing part,” he added.
“No doubt as well, the six or seven months we had at home (during the winter) put us in a pretty good place leading into the England tour and IPL. Coming in fresh to those tours it doesn’t feel like the end of the summer, it feels like I’m ready to start the tour and in a pretty good place,” the fast bowler further said.
India will be on an Australian tour for 3 months, where 3 T20Is, 3 ODIs, and 4 Tests will be played between both the teams. The tour has already started with both the teams practicing under Biosecure Bubble for 14 days. The official tour will begin with 3 ODIs, with the first one being played in Sydney on 27th November.
Pat Cummins further said, “Hopefully, pitches will react as what the Aussies are accustomed to. The surface got a bit more pace and bounce to what they get in India, that’s where a home advantage comes in.”
“Australian pitches give tough times to the Indian Batsmen”, he added.
