Kolkata Knights Riders decided to sign Cumming after he was released ahead of the IPL mega auction earlier this year. The pacer, however, has failed to be on the top of his game this season. In the four matches that he featured in, Pat has picked only four wickets while leaking runs at an economy rate of 12 runs per over.
Kolkata’s hopes of playoff qualification has become bleaker with its 75-defeat at hands of Lucknow Super Giants on Saturday. Opting to bowl first,
KKR got off to a good start with the run-out of KL Rahul in the first over. However, a 71-run partnership between Quinton de Kock and Deepak Hooda favored the Lucknow side and the team finished the innings with 176 on the board, riding on a quickfire 28 by Marcus Stoinis.
Kolkata suffered a batting collapse which has been the story of their ongoing campaign. They lost four wickets at just 25 runs. The early damage soon impacted their game and Kolkata kept losing wickets at regular intervals. The team was eventually bowled out for 101 in the 15th over, 45 of which came off Andre Russels’s bat. Pacer Mohsin Khan impressed with a great spell of three overs where he gave just 6 runs while picking the wicket of opener Baba Indrajith.
With only four wins from their 11 matches, Kolkata is currently placed at number 9 on the points table.
