Australia star turns back on IPL to concentrate on national duties – SUCH TV

Australia Test and ODI captain Pat Cummins has decided to skip next year’s IPL tournament and concentrate on leading his side through a hectic schedule of international cricket.

Cummins was purchased by the Kolkata Knight Riders for Rs 7.25 crore at the IPL auction earlier this year, but the right-arm fast bowler has decided to skip next year’s event in favour of gaining some rest ahead of a busy period for Australian cricket.

“I’ve made the difficult decision to miss next year’s IPL,” Cummins said on social media on Tuesday.

“The international schedule is packed with Tests and ODIs for the next 12 months, so will take some rest ahead of an Ashes series and World Cup.”
